Alaska Extends Contract with Gemalto to Enhance Drivera??s License Security

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), and Alaskaa??s Division of Motor
Vehicles will continue their work of providing credentials to citizens
with the additional goal of helping the state become Real ID compliant
by increasing security of the statea??s drivera??s license and
identification cards.

The most noticeable change will be transitioning to a laser-engraved polycarbonate
card body. What sets this material apart is the permanently fused
layers with security features embedded in between, which prevents
successful tampering with document information or swapping photos
without visible destruction to the card.

engraving can also be used to create personalized patterns and other
unique information relating to the citizena??s identity that is invisible
to the naked eye. Additional security features include surface embossing
and irreversible laser-engraved personalization, which are appreciated
by law enforcement agencies because these features can also be tactile.

Alaska has chosen to implement Multiple
Laser Images (MLIs), an exceptionally
effective level
one security feature (visible to the naked eye) where different
images such as a portrait, logo, symbol or numbers can be seen depending
on the viewing angle. Ita??s also particularly favored by law enforcement
and TSA (Transportation Security Administration) agents as it is easy to
recognize and extremely difficult to replicate.
