The new electronic ID cards were launched on 1st January, 2016 in Hungary. The cards are supplied by the consortium led by ANY Security Printing Company. The contactless chip cards containing fingerprints are new not only in terms of their security solutions, but can also perform several electronic functions: they can be used for electronic signatures, identification before tax and social security authorities and as an electronic travel document. The new document was created in just seven months. Nowhere else in the world has such a serious document with security functions ever been created in such a short time. The renewed identity card is protected by 16 safety features, including Braille, transparent holograms, security background, MLI feature, laser engraved document number, metallic hologram, OVI feature and a two-dimensional barcode.
