New GET Group NA solution enables DMVs to issue standards compliant mDLs or mIDs
GET Group North America‘s GET Mobile Administrator will enable DMVs and ID card issuing authorities to provide mobile driver’s licenses and other forms of mobile identification that comply with global interoperability standards, the company announced today.
GET Group NA and its technology partner Scytales AB are working with the ISO on development of the forthcoming 18013-5 standard, which will specify technical and interoperability requirements for mDLs and expand mobile identity use cases around the world.
“Citizens should have complete control of their identity data,” says David Kelts, director of product development, mobile ID, GET Group North America. “Elevating the digital quality of personal identification and cryptographically validating the data and photo makes it more difficult to produce counterfeits. Electronic validation is much stronger than visual authentication.”
Kelts adds that in addition to adopting international standards that ensure mobile identities protect privacy and can be used everywhere, GET Group NA follows American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) guidelines and is committed to solving the needs of DMVs through GET Mobile Administrator.
The company notes that its approach to GET Mobile ID leverages U.S. Federal and International standards including ISO, FIPS, ICAO and NIST) SP800-63-3. The enrollment and provisioning process for GET Mobile ID retains the level of assurance of the ID card as dictated by the NIST guideline, and can also operate in the trust models of regional identity schemes such as the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework from DIACC.ca.
The GET Mobile Administrator enables an issuing authority, once an ID card is approved or issued, to securely issue a high-assurance mobile ID credential to the verified ID holder. Issuers may provision mDLs or mIDs into the app using the GET Mobile Administrator on site or by secure provisioning. The credential is securely relayed into GET Mobile ID, a downloadable app which will be available to the public on app stores including Google Play and Apple Store. The secure credential will then be available on the holder’s mobile device of choice. Updates to pertinent information such as addresses and driving records can be made instantly, resulting in shorter lines at the DMV, time saved for the mDL holder, and improved service delivery with reduced costs for the DMV.
The company will be featuring its mDL and mID technology solutions at the AAMVA International Conference 2019 next week in Omaha. Last month GET Group NA announced NFC support for its GET Mobile ID Digital Identity Solution for iOS for identity transactions at points of sale, airports and kiosks.
