Optical & Digital Document Security

The Technical Conference for Physical,
Digital and
Virtual Document Security

 

How do we ensure that our financial transactions and identity verification conducted on a smartphone, tablet or other computer are as secure as they have been using banknotes and identity documents respectively.

Do those physical secured documents have a role in this new world? Will there be co-existence or will they be replaced?

These are the underlying issues to be addressed at the Optical & Digital Document Security Conference, an event that brings together two very successful technical conferences to cover the key topics that have become more pressing in our digital age.

The Optical Document Security Conference, held every two years since 1996, is established as a highly-respected technical conference, while Digital Document Security, a spin-off event, was quickly recognised as an essential bridge between the physical and digital “document” security worlds. In combining the two events, Reconnaissance is recognising the fact of the digitisation of what have traditionally been paper or polymer documents, with the need to maintain the highest levels of security in the digital domain as have been achieved in the physical domain.

ODDS will be the platform to bring together the thousand-year experience of the banknote and ID document world with the fast-moving field of digital financial transactions, virtual ID and digital identity verification. People involved in the digital transaction, identity and authentication communities and specifiers, designers, producers and issuers of secure documents will find ODDS a valuable forum to explain, learn, network and explore possibilities.

Look out for the ODDS Call for Papers, to be issued shortly, which will show the key topics for papers at the new conference.

The first session will see all delegates come together to hear presentations and discuss the overarching and hybrid issues that apply to our new world of digital transactions, virtual and digital identity verification. The conference will then split in to two streams, one on optical document security, the other on digital systems security.

The final session will again see all delegates come together to share conclusions, ideas and forward plans, all geared to ensure the continuing security and protection of our transactions and identity.
