GET mID™ Allows Secure and Efficient Transition to Digital Identification
Waltham, MA (October 10, 2017) – GET Group North America, a leading-edge provider of end-to-end solutions for secure credentials with over 20 years of experience in identity management, has announced the launch of its digital identity platform, GET mID™. The new system, providing high assurance identity on a user’s mobile device, represents a convenient, secure and instant alternative to traditional physical identification documents, and utilizes formidable data encryption algorithms and communication security measures to combat fraud and reduce identity theft and the consequences thereof.
GET mID allows organizations across a multitude of sectors – including education, enterprise, retail and finance – as well as public institutions to issue high-assurance digital identification. Authentication is instant, and the security specifications of stored identities are configurable to meet ICAO, ISO and AAMVA standards, thus laying the foundation for a wide range of online identity-based services.
Identity providers will enable the GET mID App to be installed on citizens’ mobile devices to leverage high-assurance PKI technology in order to deliver comparable security assurances from mobile identification as that provided by high security chip cards, while enabling authentication capabilities across relying parties.
GET mID Authentication App gives relying parties the ability to inspect and verify a mobile ID for instant validation and authentication with the identity provider. It is enhanced with an automated process that can be performed on a wide variety of devices, from sophisticated e-gates and workstation terminals to standard NFC and Bluetooth- enabled smartphones and tablets.
“Today, physical IDs are often used in acts of fraud such as cashing checks, opening bank accounts and boarding flights. We’re proud to leverage extensive identity proofing technologies for enrolling, capturing, and accessing identity document data to help enable a secure transition to digital ID formats,” said Alex Kambanis, Managing Director for GET Group NA. “If done correctly, mobile IDs with multi-factor authentication will not only provide the convenience of being able to be instantly updated, but could become a more effective barrier against fraud by making it harder to produce counterfeits and elevating the quality of personal identification documents.”
