GET Group North America releases digital identity mobile platform


GET Group North America has released GET mID, a digital identity platform which provides high assurance identity on a user’s mobile device as a convenient, secure and instant alternative to traditional physical identification documents.

Using data encryption algorithms and communication security measures, the platform is designed to combat fraud and reduce identity theft.

GET mID allows organizations across a range of sectors – including education, enterprise, retail and finance – as well as public institutions to issue high-assurance digital identification.

Authentication is instant while the security specifications of stored identities can be configured to meet ICAO, ISO and AAMVA standards, all of which provides the foundation for a wide range of online identity-based services.

Identity providers will enable the GET mID App to be installed on individuals’ mobile devices to use high-assurance PKI technology to deliver comparable security assurances from mobile identification as provided by high security chip cards, while enabling authentication capabilities across relying parties.

GET mID Authentication App allows relying parties to inspect and verify a mobile ID for instant validation and authentication with the identity provider.

The platform is equipped with an automated process that can be conducted in devices ranging from advanced e-gates and workstation terminals to standard NFC and Bluetooth-enabled smartphones and tablets.

“Today, physical IDs are often used in acts of fraud such as cashing checks, opening bank accounts and boarding flights. We’re proud to leverage extensive identity proofing technologies for enrolling, capturing, and accessing identity document data to help enable a secure transition to digital ID formats,” said Alex Kambanis, managing director for GET Group NA. “If done correctly, mobile IDs with multi-factor authentication will not only provide the convenience of being able to be instantly updated, but could become a more effective barrier against fraud by making it harder to produce counterfeits and elevating the quality of personal identification documents.”

In August, GET Group North America showcased its biometrics, facial recognition and mobile ID solutions at the American Association of Motor Vehicles (AAMVA) Annual International Conference in San Francisco, California.
