Creating a unified identity system with mobile smart credentials
Ryan Zlockie, Global Vice President of Authentication, Entrust Datacard, USA

We live in an incredibly connected and complex world. The challenge of protecting data is an evolving and sophisticated task, but it all starts with a secure identity. As we drive towards greater connectivity, linking virtually every aspect of our lives to a connected system, the need for dynamic and unified identities, from physical to digital from both government and consumer standpoints, becomes increasingly clear. And so does the answer – mobile smart credentials.

A new frontier with great promise, sophisticated mobile smart credentials can be used to grant both physical and logical access to secure environments. By implementing mobile smart credentials as the next generation of ID within the borders of a country, governments can make way for a seamless, unified identity system that provides the anytime, anywhere access today’s citizens desire.

In this session, Tony Ball will discuss what it will take to implement a unified identity system using mobile smart credentials, and the current security issues this system will address, including lost or stolen physical credentials, passwords and more.

  • As we drive toward greater connectivity, the need for dynamic, unified identities becomes clear;
  • Mobile smart credentials have the potential to provide governments with the next generation of ID;
  • A unified identity system can provide the anytime, anywhere access today’s citizens desire.

How mobile IDs are evolving and changing the identity market
Steve Warne, Global Director of Solutions Marketing, Citizen Identity Solutions, HID, USA

Mobile ID adoption is shifting into high gear as the world’s first pilot programs for citizen services have been completed, and issuing agencies look to the next steps of implementation. This presentation will look at how far mobile identity has progressed in the two years since its inception, by drawing on market information and real data from pilot studies. The rate of technology innovation in the interim has led to the perceived use cases and value propositions for mobile ID to be completely rethought. Moreover, the deployment methods for mobile identity and the associated business cases have also evolved resulting in a re-evaluation of traditional go-to-market concepts for identity projects. This presentation will summarize findings and lessons learned as government agencies evaluate the results of their pilot programs and prepare for the next stages of mobile ID deployment. It will also cover some of the different approaches to mobile ID and where each is having an impact on the market.

  • The mobile ID revolution is shifting into high gear as the first pilot programs for citizen services move beyond simple identification applications to fuel new types of more convenient, higher-value government offerings;
  • Attendees will hear about how initial concepts of mobile IDs have developed and use cases have evolved to change the scope of the identity market;
  • Attendees will find out what the market has learned about mobile IDs as pilot program results are evaluated and preparations for the next stage of deployment commence.

Digital driver’s license - your ID in your smartphone

Kristel Teyras, Digital Identity Services, Mobile ID Market Owner, Gemalto, France

The world is evolving rapidly towards mobile and digital formats for many everyday tasks. Key drivers for this trend are convenience and ease-of-use for transactions that require some form of identification. And one of the most used documents to confirm identity – the driver’s license – is looking at going down this route. 

During the course of the past three years, studies and pilots have been launched in several states in the US to explore the technical feasibility of a digital driver's license. Other countries, such as the UK, Australia, Brazil, and the Netherlands have also been investigating this option.

This presentation will detail the results of 2017-2018 pilots funded by a NIST grant awarded to Gemalto, in five jurisdictions; Idaho, Colorado, Maryland, Washington D.C and Wyoming. These pilots for a secure Digital Driver's License (DDL), are seen by many to be the future of trusted identities.
