National secure digital identity card in France

The french goverment is planning on introducing (following some european requirements) a secure digital national Identity program.
The idea is to replace the current national id with a smartcard containing fingerprints and photo (digitally signed) and potentially to use the card for other applications such as medical records, e-voting or banking services...
To make sure that the french government understands  what are the people concerns, it has launched a website for information and discussion including  a forum.

The rest is in french on the site for the "Debat National sur la carte d'identite electronique"

Debat national sur la carte d'identite electronique
L'opinion publique est notamment sollicitee sur les themes suivants : 
  • Le principe de la mise en place d'une carte nationale d'identite electronique sur laquelle une puce electronique contiendrait l'empreinte digitale et la photo du detenteur ;
  • Les garanties souhaitees en termes de protection de la vie privee ;
  • L'acces, depuis cette carte, a d'™autres applications comme des services administratifs (teleprocedures, e-vote...), ou encore des services marchands (services bancaires, achats en ligne, abonnements divers...) ;
  • Les modalites pratiques souhaitees  : lieu de delivrance, prix eventuel d'une telle carte, etc.
