GET Group North America, an innovative developer of mobile ID technology with over 20 years of experience in secure government credentials, announced that its GET Mobile Administrator will enable DMVs and other ID card Issuing Authorities to provide mobile driver's licenses (mDLs) and other forms of mobile identification (mIDs) that comply with global interoperability standards.
GET Group NA, with its technology partner Scytales AB, is working with the International Standards Organisation (ISO) on development of the forthcoming 18013-5 standard, which will specify the technical and interoperability requirements for mDLs and expand mobile identity use cases around the world.
Citizens should have complete control of their identity data"
"Citizens should have complete control of their identity data. 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," said David Kelts, Director of Product Development, Mobile ID, GET Group North America.
"In addition to adopting international standards that ensure mobile identities protect privacy and can be used everywhere, we follow American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) guidelines and are committed to understanding and best addressing the needs of DMVs through GET Mobile Administrator."
Retaining level of assurance
Issuers may provision mDLs or mIDs into the app using the GET Mobile Administrator
GET Group NA's approach to GET Mobile ID leverages all existing U.S. Federal and International standards; not only ISO, but also the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (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 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guideline, and can also operate in the trust models of regional identity schemes such as the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework from DIACC.ca.
Once an ID card is approved or issued, an Issuing Authority will be able to use the GET Mobile Administrator 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 at one of their offices 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.
