Les tressautements du "devenir interface" de notre relation à l'État. : Controverse sur l'expérimentation d'Alicem

Abstract : How can a person’s identity be verified in remote governmental services? The article presents an analysis of controversy over the French response to this problem of remote identification, alicem, a mobile application designed by the French Ministry of the Interior’s National Agency for Identity Documents to provide public services users with a secure digital identity. It describes the reasons that led the Ministry to design this application and the technical and political choices embedded in the technology, before identifiying the issues involved and the government’s responses in an attempt to stem critiques of its actions. The analysis presented provides two insights regarding contemporary reconfigurations of the relationship between the technological state and digital users (named here “becoming an interface”): the contested diffusion of an experimental mode of action and a choice made to signal the presence of the state to the market.
