Abstract: The Indonesian government is planning to implement the Single Identity Number (SIN) as the primary identification method for residents of Indonesia. With this SIN implementation, it is hoped that a number of residential administrative issues, such as an individual having multiple identity cards (KTP), can be resolved. Furthermore, residents will have the advantage of only needing one identity form and not having to remember multiple identity information. It is hoped that just by using a single SIN a resident can obtain various government services more efficiently. However, on the other hand the use of the SIN introduces the potential for security attacks through the misuse of a SIN by people other than its owner or assignee. As such additional security mechanisms are needed to ensure that a SIN is used only by its proper owner or assignee. This paper aims at describing a proposal for a mechanism to secure the SIN, based on the combined use fingerprints and the QR Code.
