HID Global makes it easier for governments to offer mobile citizen ID programs
HID Global has extended its HID goID platform so governments can more easily offer mobile identities to citizens from multiple authorized issuing agencies.
The platform is now available as a cloud service in a packaged HID solution or as a new, in-country offering operated locally with support from HID support teams. The new goID Gateway manages the provisioning of fully encrypted mobile identities from a central issuance system to citizens’ smartphones. It also enhances the features of goID which include remote enrollment and provisioning, off-line verification, remote verification, role-based verification services, Bluetooth engagement and customizable functionality.
“We are delighted to announce the expanded capabilities of our market-leading goID platform with the addition of our flexible in-country goID Gateway,” said Rob Haslam, VP worldwide sales with HID Global. “Now governments can choose whether to contract the management of end-to-end encrypted mobile ID provisioning services to HID or to invest in their own provisioning service, either on-premise or in the cloud.”
The goID Gateway was recently added to HID’s end-to-end ePassport solution used by the government of Tanzania to enable provisioning mobile electronic passports to citizens’ smartphones.
