HID Global Extends HID goID to Provide Government Agencies with End-to-End Solution for Adopting Mobile Citizen IDs

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#goID–HID Global®, a worldwide leader in trusted identity
solutions, today announced that its HID goID™ solution has been extended
to provide an end-to-end system for deploying and managing a mobile
citizen ID program. From issuance through verification, HID goID is
backed by the same high security standards for data, communication and
privacy protection that are used in today’s physical electronic ID (eID)
programs.

“This is a major step in delivering the full value of our goID solution,
as we extend its capabilities for provisioning, updating and revoking
mobile IDs to include the full range of citizen ID program
functionality,” said Jessica Westerouen van Meeteren, Vice President and
Managing Director, Citizen ID with HID Global. “Governments now have
everything they need to move to a fully mobile society, including
support for integrating HID goID with existing issuance systems,
developing a citizen app, and ensuring compliance with international
standards for digital credentials.”

Key HID goID solution components include an issuance system, utilizing
HID Global’s renowned Integrale™ modular software suite for the
management of physical and mobile IDs; a gateway for mobile ID
provisioning which can be managed locally by governments or offered as a
service; and a software development kit (SDK) for the development of the
citizen app to meet local requirements. HID Global also provides
comprehensive support and training for the creation and deployment of
the citizen app and verification solutions.

HID goID includes off-the-shelf data structures enabling governments to
issue mobile Passports that will help comply with digital travel
credentials currently being developed by the International Civil
Aviation Organization (ICAO) and to issue mobile driver’s licenses that
will help promote compliance with ISO18013-5 specifications being
developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

The solution enables countries to move from paper or electronic
documents to mobile IDs, streamlining proof of identity issuance through
over-the-air provisioning directly to citizens’ phones. It protects
privacy with end-to-end encryption and four layers of fraud-fighting
security mechanisms. Additionally, citizens can control what
verification data they share, and with whom. Post-issuance technologies
keep mobile IDs current and trustable, and verification can be performed
from distances up to 66 feet (20 meters).

HID goID also enables issuing authorities to easily add other government
agencies and authorized private-sector entities into its ecosystem. This
creates new opportunities to improve communication between governments
and their citizens while opening the door for people to carry many
different citizen and commercial IDs in one convenient mobile
application.
