Overview of the ORIGINS project
Program Manager, Collaborative Programs, Morpho, France
Government-issued identity documents are only as secure as the weakest link in the issuance chain. Of particular importance are the breeder documents, which are used to validate identity in the first place, and underpin the security of many gold standard documents, such as ePassports. Traditionally these types of breeder documents have been diverse in nature, too easy to manipulate or copy, and have become an avenue for fraud. To bring breeder documents into the 21st century, significant efforts are now being placed on improving the status quo. This session explores the latest thinking in this area from the participants of the European ORIGINS project.
Stéphane Caillebotte graduated in image and signal processing and holds both a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Specialist Postgraduate Diploma in Telecommunications. He has more than 10 years of experience in the field of biometrics and security technologies, and has worked on solutions to prevent ID document fraud. He is currently coordinator of the European ORIGINS Project, which aims to secure and harmonise breeder documents, and EKSISTENZ, which aims to protect citizens from identity theft. He has also been involved in several French and European projects in the field of security.
