The ID Theft Passport is a free service provided to victims of identity theft by the state Attorney General’s office as a way to substantiate the crime to creditors and law enforcement. DuPont™ Izon® technology will now be used as an additional security and authentication device in each ID Theft Passport that is produced.

“We are proud to offer our Izon® holographic technology to enhance the Identity Theft Passport program,” said Linda B. West, vice president and general manager -- DuPont Imaging Technologies. “DuPont Authentication has been successfully assisting our global customers to understand their security needs, whether that is brand protection, anti-counterfeiting, product tracking, or document authentication and developing customized solutions based on those needs. We look forward to working closely with the state of Delaware to reduce the negative impact of increasing identity theft.”

“The ID Theft Passport provides victims of identity theft with an important tool to secure their identity and reclaim their financial health,” said Chief Deputy Attorney General Richard Gebelein. “We were impressed with the high level of security that DuPont™ Izon® authentication technology provides and believe that Delawareans will be better protected as a result of its incorporation into the Passport Program.”
