The Person Identity Link is an integral part of the Citizen Card concept. It is a structure signed by the issuing public authority that assigns a unique identification feature of a person (for example a registration number) to one or more certificates belonging to this person. As such, the person identity link can be used for the unique, automated identification of a person when that person approaches the public authority during the course of a procedure.
