BEST PRACTICE – ICT INITIATIVE AT NATIONAL LEVAL E.g.
NATIONAL CHIP-BASED ID CARD (smart card) AND MACHINE READABLE PSSPORT

•National ID card was first implemented in 1948. The paper-based version went through three revision over a 50 year period. •The last replacement exercise which started 5 years ago is the chip-based ID card. Besides ID function it also has applications to serve as driving license, health card, electronic payment card. More application will be added. •To date less than 2 million eligible people have yet to apply for the smart ID card.

BEST PRACTICE (Contd.)

BEST PRACTICES GAINED IN THE PROCESS OF IMPLEMENTING ELECTRONIC ID CARD AND MACNINE-READABLE PASSPORT INCLUDE: •Manufacture of smart cards, card readers and Immigration auto-gates •Embedded systems application software development •Application integration and automation of ID card generation •Management of security, especially in card personalisation process •Government-private sector collaborative development approach •Development of standards 19

1.

BEST PRACTICE (Contd.)

•For the Malaysian machine-readable passports to be usable by other systems of Immigration Authorities the adoption of common standards is a necessity. •At the time Malaysia initiated the machine-readable passport there was no existing international standard to follow. Malaysia had to develop one from scratch. •After the 9/11 incident several countries have embarked on machine-readable passports. But there is still no established common standard. •Malaysia has applied to become a participating member of ISO Technical Committee on Machine-readable Passport, which is currently working towards developing a common standard.
