Trusted Tag Services

Trusted Tag Services is a unique solution combining cryptographically secured trust of NFC tags or Bluetooth beacons and cloud-based authentication to add digital identification to everyday objects that can be read by NFC-enabled devices.

Open Up a New World of Opportunities

HID Trusted Tag® Services combine HID Global’s patented Near Field Communication trusted tag technology (NFC Tags) and cloud-based authentication platform to add unique and trusted identities to everyday objects that can be read by NFC-enabled mobile devices.

HID trusted NFC Tags provide a secure authentication environment not possible with today’s standard NFC labels, static tags or QR codes, and HID Trusted Tag Services are ideal for establishing “proof of presence” to:

  • Prevent or detect sharing of URLs in digital marketing campaigns.
  • Verify a caregiver’s presence in the patient’s home (Electronic Visit Verification).
  • Confirm presence for student time and attendance and onsite services (guard shifts, maintenance work and additional use cases where a trustworthy audit trail of presence is needed).
  • Verify the authenticity of a tagged product and provide enhanced consumer experience.
How it Works

How Trusted Tag Services Works

HID Trusted Tag Services can facilitate transactions simply by tapping an attached or embedded NFC tag with an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet to securely communicate information. This results in a frictionless authentication experience using a solution that fuels more powerful and dynamic Internet of Things applications.

Bring it all together. Hover over or click on each component for details of the solution.
