In today's environment, as it is shaped by the conditions of globalization and the digital age, there is a new need for safe and reliable methods for identification and authentication of citizens within and across national borders. E-Governance is not only a choice and necessity, but also a reality. The Citizen Card (CC) is the modern method of identifying the owner (identification) and to confirming that the card holder’s identity is indeed true (authentication). Integrating smart cards’ technology is the perfect choice for the CC, because through the containing chip they provide significant flexibility and security. The role of standards and specifications is very important for ensuring that the minimum required level of security and interoperability in CC applications will be met. The European CC (ECC) is a major attempt of creating a single set of compliance requirements for security and border services to European citizens, while simultaneously providing some flexibility options to Member States. Although security and interoperability issues are widely open, the study of European and international experience is a very important tool in order to troubleshoot and address potential risks. At the same time, significant work is already been done at a European level in order to ensure that privacy and interoperability between individual CC systems is met at national and European level, boasting modern and innovative solutions for the optimal implementation of CC’s.
