HJP secures key e-ID project

19 November 2013, 08:51Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has engaged HJP Consulting to deliver test services and consulting for the electronic identity card (eID card) project.

Based on a presidential initiative, NIMC has the responsibility to register all Nigerian citizens and resident legal aliens.

Within this initiative, a new multi-application eID card with applications from private and public sectors will be implemented.

HJP Consulting provides test services for the multi-application eID card, covering card and application tests. The services include the development of customized test specifications, the evaluation and implementation of test specifications as well as performing conformity and acceptance tests and generating test reports.

HJP's Technical Director Holger Funke said, “We are proud that our wide range of test expertise is required in this important eID project.”

Additionally, HJP delivers consultancy services for the development of specification documents, which will include documents such as system architecture and IT security concept as well as a business case for eServices.

HJP Consulting has many years of experience in the planning, procurement, testing and approval of large-scale smart card-based IT systems for eID or e-health applications. HJP’s own open-source test tool platform GlobalTesterTM will be used for the application testing.

GlobalTesterTM is a sophisticated platform to test the chip application layer of smart cards and has been used by government and industry customers worldwide.
