One ID

One of the key objectives of the One ID initiative is to develop guidance documentation of best practices and drive or support the development and adoption of global recommended practices and standards required to support the harmonisation and interoperability of frameworks, processes, data models, and data interchange protocols.

The project has made some progress toward this direction of interoperability and would like to share broader their vision of the One ID Ecosystem for the Industry.

Passenger data privacy is at the heart of the subject, with the need of passenger biographic and biometric data for passenger processing at the airport to enable biometric recognition and contactless processing. This webinar went through the main data privacy challenges and how could they be addressed, within the One ID Ecosystem and supporting standards.

Key Learning Points


  • The main elements of privacy that seem to be a challenge and how they can be tackled
  • Understand the direction One ID is going toward with regards to interoperability, and how it is addressing many of the privacy issues
  • Understand what are the necessary standards to achieve interoperability (to come or existing)
  • Learn from industry stakeholders what they think about the One ID Ecosystem and how they plan to integrate and trial with partners.
