The Principality of Monaco has selected IN Groupe as the technological partner for the design of its digital identity mechanism.

This digital identity will enable authentication, without the need for additional supporting documents, giving access to various procedures that can be initiated with the State’s services.

Monaco’s citizens will be obtaining a digital identity as soon as they renew their national identity document. 

Monaco’s digital identity scheme anticipates digital interoperability with the various European electronic identification services.

The digital identity scheme will assist citizens with authentication for government and private sector e-services, availability identity documents on mobile devices, the ability to create online sworn statements, paperless contract signing, obtaining documents from the City Hall online, access to e-services with a single sign-on.
