In February 2008, the Slovenian Health Insurance Institute chose Gemalto and Cetis, the Slovenian leader in security document printing, to supply a comprehensive solution for its latest generation of health insurance cards. Cetis will provide card personalization and the PKI infrastructure.
Gemalto's Sealys Health Insurance cards will be the first of their kind in Europe to feature its Java-based Sealys MultiApp ID to further secure a fully on-line system with digital signatures for healthcare professionals.
Gemalto's Coesys Issuance solution is also perfectly adapted to the Slovenian project, and Gemalto will also be supplying middleware, software applications and applets. The Institute will act as system integrator and as operator of the national healthcare system will issue cards to citizens.
Key to the successful running of the operation is the fact that the new system will be fully backward-compatible with existing infrastructure
