According to the Ministry of Public Security, in the past, when people made almost every transaction such as opening a bank account, securities or performing public services, they often had to come in person and carry a lot of papers to prove their identity in order that the service can be performed.

Meanwhile, the system of electronic identification and authentication (IDP) of the Ministry of Public Security was born to give each citizen a legal electronic identity, easier and more convenient in transactions.

In addition to economic benefits, digital citizenship also helps reduce social inequality, creating conditions for all classes of people to access socio-economic services in the digital environment. With that special meaning, the electronic identification and authentication system is an indispensable core component in the digital transformation process of developed countries around the world. The leading countries in the world, in terms of digital government, have invested a lot of resources to build identification and authentication systems in the digital environment for their people because of the great socio-economic benefits that the platform brings.
