How the Wise Implementation of Biometrics Will Improve Mobile Identity Programs

With the current global pandemic, there has never been more focus on the use of mobile technology to deliver identity credentials to a remote audience. Social interactions are restricted, and there is a great need for citizens to be able to prove their identity online, over the phone or even at a distance. In this blog post, I take a look at how biometrics can help in delivering and securing such mobile identity programs.

How Mobile ID Facilitates e-Government

The path to implementation of mobile ID has perhaps been longer than the market expected with legislation particularly slow to respond to the pace of technology. There have been many pilots around the world, mainly for mobile driver licenses, but generally these projects haven’t progressed into full blown implementations.

5 Reasons for Countries to Implement a Civil Registry

A new school is built because either one doesn’t exist in the area or the current school does not have enough space to accommodate the population of a certain area. The foundation of that decision is often statistics: the number of registered births, the number of school children nearby that might attend that school, the number of inhabitants that might possibly have more children in the future. A lot of public services are based on similar logic, whether it is the healthcare system or public transport or the retirement system of a country.

Mobile ID Becomes a Reality Driven by Technology and Standards

Back in 2015, HID Global was one of the first advocates of mobile identity for government-issued documents. When we started to promote that idea, few could imagine that one day there would be legally enforceable documents issued on a mobile phone.

Identity Document Security: Ensuring an Integrated Approach

An integrated approach to the design of security documents is one of the fundamental building blocks on which secure identity documents are created. Design should be a circular process that evolves and iterates to accommodate the document’s many features and manufacturing processes, with manufacturers and designers working together every step of the way. To be effective, this integrated approach must:

The Importance of Centralizing Criminal Booking

If you read our blog series, True Crime Stories, you learned how murders that went unsolved for years were cleared thanks to biometric data that could finally be compared to an entire database of biometrics. In short, catching the bad guys has become easier than ever. Thanks for this, we have the advent of hardware and software that collects fingerprints and other biometrics from criminals. Two factors in collecting fingerprints have significantly improved over time:

How to Choose the Right e-Passport Chip Operating System

The passport is a rather peculiar identity document — unlike most other documents, it is issued by one country and checked in another country. A passport’s sole purpose is to prove that a person is who he or she claims to be, making this identity document and the information stored in it important to a country’s national security.
