National secure digital identity card in France

The french goverment is planning on introducing (following some
european requirements) a secure digital national Identity program.
The idea is to replace the current national id with a smartcard
containing fingerprints and photo (digitally signed) and potentially to
use the card for other applications such as medical records, e-voting
or banking services…
To make sure
that the french government understands  what are the people concerns, it has launched a website for information and discussion including  a forum.

The rest is in french on the site for the “Debat National sur la carte d’identite electronique

Debat national sur la carte d’identite electronique

L’opinion publique est notamment sollicitee sur les themes suivants : 

  • Le principe de la mise en place d’une carte nationale
    d’identite electronique sur laquelle une puce electronique contiendrait
    l’empreinte digitale et la photo du detenteur ;
  • Les garanties souhaitees en termes de protection de la vie privee ;
  • L’acces, depuis cette carte, a d’™autres applications comme des services
    administratifs (teleprocedures, e-vote…), ou encore des services
    marchands (services bancaires, achats en ligne, abonnements divers…) ;
  • Les modalites pratiques souhaitees  : lieu de delivrance, prix eventuel d’une telle carte, etc.
