SCM Microsystems Ships Smart Card Readers
According to SCM, its SCR3310v2.0 smart card readers will be used to enable various eGovernment applications under an electronic ID Card (DNI electronico) project in Spain. Individuals and businesses will be able to use the reader to access eGovernment, eBanking and eAdministration applications, as well as to digitally sign documents.
The company has added that it had received the order from red.es for driving the Information Society in Spain and for carrying out strategic projects - via its partner Algoritmos Procesos y Disenos, S.A. (APD).
The Spanish government is providing the readers to its citizens at no charge, to drive the distribution and use of the electronic ID card and the respective technologies in Spain. Several Spanish business sponsors are supporting the government project.
Felix Marx, chief executive officer of SCM Microsystems, said: "We are pleased that our SCR3310v2.0 readers are being used to provide support for the Spanish government. One important criteria for the selection besides our well-known product quality is our ability to provide the customized readers in a very tight time frame.
“Our long experience with large scale government projects together with our flexibility to meet customer requirements makes us a preferred partner for such projects, the DNI electronico project offers substantial advantages to citizens as well as companies: online forms for government services can be filed and processed faster, and eBanking applications can be conveniently executed."
