GET Group and Scytáles demonstrate ISO mobile driver’s license standard
GET Group North America and its virtual ID partner Scytáles AB have created a fully-functional demonstration of a mobile driver’s license (mDL) according to the International Standards Organization (ISO) 18013-5 standard in development.
ISO 18013 is the international standard for driver’s license credentials, and Part 5 is being developed to specify technical and interoperability requirements for mDLs. Both companies are participating in the new standard’s development, and the new demonstration meets the criteria of the latest “committee draft.” The demonstration includes both the direct communication between devices in offline mode, and the connection to the issuing authority of the license, with user approval, to retrieve information, as specified by the standard.
The demonstration leverages the GET mID mobile identity platform, which combines compliance, identity security, and privacy by design features, along with American Association of Motor Vehicles Administrators (AAMVA) standards. The platform enables users to securely and efficiently convert to digital identification, according to the announcement, with formidable data encryption algorithms and communication security.
GET mID was also recently integrated with biometric facial recognition technology from Secure Planet.
“Developing an ID solution that is efficient, affordable and secure, while at the same time compliant with the global identification standards, is not an easy task to achieve. We joined forces with GET and gathered the best experts in the field to develop this state-of-the-art technology that allows users to securely store their legal ID on their phone, control the interactions, and let others verify the data in real time,” explains Anna Seddigh, VP & Chief Communications Officer at Scytáles AB.
A number of U.S. states are currently working towards introducing mobile driver’s licenses, and Google is reportedly working on an identity credential API for Android.
