Identity theft has been a serious risk to the security of government and private establishments, accounting for a loss of approximately USD 110 billion over the past six years. At present, 1.2 billion people globally, i.e. 1 in every 6 individuals, do not have an ID. Governments needs to provide reliable and secure identity documents to citizens to ensure national security and prevent fraud.
