PETALING JAYA: In line with the current need for digital and online services and transactions, the government will introduce the Digital Identity (Digital ID) initiative, says Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.
The Home Minister said the planning and implementation process began in 2021 and was expected to be fully implemented in 2024.
“The Digital ID will be a form of digital identification and authentication for individuals by using the latest biometric technology such as fingerprints, facial and iris recognition while conducting matters online.
“This digital authentication is essential to avoid identity fraud.
“The Home Ministry and National Registration Department (NRD) have been entrusted to lead the implementation of this initiative as the population data, information and records are under the custody and jurisdiction of the NRD.
“In addition, the Digital ID is one of the initiatives in the Malaysian Digital Economy Action Plan (MyDigital).
“This initiative is in line with the government’s aspiration to empower the digitisation of technological and government services at high capacity through an end-to-end approach that can be utilised by the people and at the same time drive the development of the country’s digital economy,” he said during the National Registration Day celebration on Wednesday (Oct 20).
Hamzah noted that to ensure that the NRD was ready in terms of systems and infrastructure to handle user identity verification matters through Digital ID, existing ICT systems and infrastructure at the NRD would continue to be improved so that it was always up to date and safe.
“However, the Digital ID will not replace the existing MyKad as an identification document, but the Digital ID will strengthen the security of MyKad.
“With the availability of this Digital ID, individual review and verification of citizens who have a MyKad can be executed with ease and precision.
“It doesn’t only help to smoothen the process involved, what is more important it is able to give confidence to the government’s service delivery system,” he said.
In addition to Digital ID, the NRD has also completed the development of the System Mortality Integration Data Validation (SPDIM), which was a smart system partnership between NRD and the Royal Malaysian Police.
The SPDIM was an integration between the NRD with the Police Reporting System involving 690 police stations in Peninsular Malaysia.
Also present at the virtual event were NRD director-general Datuk Ruslin Jusoh and Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Wan Ahmad Dahlan Abdul Aziz.
