The technology of blocking from WISeKey will help to protect the data. Partners plan to launch pilot projects in public administration, and then in other areas, such as smart cities. The state also plans to introduce blockage into the transport sector.

Carlos Moreira, founder of WISeKey, believes that the human center should be put in the center of projects: "All infrastructure should be built on this vision. This is the key to the successful disclosure of the potential of citizens and the expansion of their rights. "
