The Exame Informática Awards aim to distinguish innovative projects in Portugal in the areas of Technology and Science. The award ceremony of the honorable mentions and awards took place on April 27, in São Francisco de Sales Building, in Oeiras.
The DMK solution, implemented by AMA, received an honorable distinction in the Internet category. The competition includes 11 categories ranging from innovation to the Best National Brand.

DMK is a simple and secure way of authentication of citizens and businesses in the portals and sites of Public Administration on the Internet, through the use of a computer, smartphone or tablet and a code sent by SMS or email.
With the DMK citizens can access online public services and authenticate electronic documents by entering their civil identification number or passport, the password and the numeric code sent by SMS (Short Message Service) or email.
AMA is responsible for the management and security of the technological infrastructure of the DMK. The Ordinance No. 189/2014 complements the Law No. 37/2014, which established the DMK as an alternative and voluntary system of authentication of citizens in portals and websites of public administration.
