IN Groupe and CEA Partner on France’s Digital ID

France’s IN Groupe has announced a new partnership with the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). 

IN Groupe and CEA have officially launched their research partnership on technologies related to the future of digital identity and border control.

More specifically, the two entities will explore decentralized ID and interoperable blockchain applications “in the context of ongoing European reflections on digital identity.” Also, biometric anti-spoofing solutions and RAE (Risk Analysis Management) for border crossing.

“Anticipating and preparing for breakthrough technologies in the field of identity means ensuring, today and tomorrow, the protection of the identity of French people,”

comments IN Groupe CEO Didier Trutt.

“This requirement is at the heart of the mission that IN Groupe carries out every day on behalf of the State.”

The company was tasked with collaborating on France’s digital ID ecosystem last January when it also won a contract to supply biometric passports to Seychelles.
