Ireland is a world leader in the research and development of Biometric solutions, with homegrown companies such as Daon trusted to keep critical user data secure across a range of industries.

Estonia is a leader in digital identity, with almost all of its 1.3m citizens using the national ID card which has an embedded chip and uses 2048-bit public key encryption.

Following recent controversies regarding its national ID card, Estonia can be expected to migrate from traditional two-stage authentication using passwords to biometric validation.

IEBN believes collaboration between Ireland and Estonia on Biometrics and e-Government topics will create benefits for both parties.
