GET Group North America Announces GET Mobile Administrator for Issuance of 18013-5- Compliant Mobile Driver’s Licenses and ID Cards

Will showcase latest mDL and mID Technology Solutions Supporting Global Interoperability Standards at AAMVA International Conference August 20-22, 2019

Waltham, Massachusetts, (August 15, 2019) – GET Group North America, (“GET Group NA”)  an innovative developer of mobile ID technology with over 20 years of experience in secure government credentials, today announced that its GET Mobile Administrator will enable DMVs and other ID card Issuing Authorities to provide mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs) and other forms of mobile identification (mIDs) that comply with global interoperability standards. GET Group NA, with its’ technology partner Scytales AB, is working with the International Standards Organization (ISO) on development of the forthcoming 18013-5 standard, which will specify the technical and interoperability requirements for mDLs and expand mobile identity use cases around the world.

“Citizens should have complete control of their identity data.  Elevating the digital quality of personal identification and cryptographically validating the data and photo makes it more difficult to produce counterfeits. Electronic validation is much stronger than visual authentication,” said David Kelts, Director of Product Development, Mobile ID, GET Group North America. “In addition to adopting international standards that ensure mobile identities protect privacy and can be used everywhere, we follow American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) guidelines and are committed to understanding and best addressing the needs of DMVs through GET Mobile Administrator.”

GET Group NA’s approach to GET Mobile ID leverages all existing U.S. Federal and International standards; not only ISO, but also Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP800-63-3. The enrollment and provisioning process for GET Mobile ID retains the level of assurance of the ID card as dictated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guideline, and can also operate in the trust models of regional identity schemes such as the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework from DIACC.ca.

Once an ID card is approved or issued, an Issuing Authority will be able to use the GET Mobile Administrator to securely issue a high-assurance mobile ID credential to the verified ID holder. Issuers may provision mDLs or mIDs into the app using the GET Mobile Administrator at one of their offices or by secure provisioning. The credential is securely relayed into GET Mobile ID, a downloadable app which will be available to the public on app stores including Google Play and Apple Store. The secure credential will then be available on the holder’s mobile device of choice.

Another significant advantage of mDLs and mIDs through GET Mobile Administrator, is that updates to pertinent information such as addresses and driving records can be made instantly, resulting in shorter lines at the DMV, time saved for the mDL holder, and improved service delivery with reduced costs for the DMV.

GET Group North America will be showcasing its mDL and mID technology solutions in booths 209 and 210 at the AAMVA International Conference 2019 taking place August 20-22 in Omaha, NE.

GET Group North America Announces Near-field Communication (NFC) Support on iOS for mDL and Mobile ID Transactions at Point of Sale

GET Mobile ID™ First to Support ISO 18013-5-Compliant NFC Identity Transactions for Retail on both iOS and Android Devices

Waltham, Massachusetts, (July 15, 2019) – GET Group North America, (“GET Group NA”)  an innovative developer of mobile ID technology with over 20 years of experience in identity management, today announced that its GET Mobile ID™ Digital Identity Solution for iOS can support near-field communication (NFC) for identity transactions at Point of Sale (POS), airports, and even kiosks.  GET Mobile ID for Android already supports NFC identity transactions.

GET Group NA and global partner Scytáles AB, innovative developers of mobile ID technology, are the first to extend the new ISO 18013-5 standard so that iOS devices can also use NFC for data transmission, or allow NFC tap followed by either local or online data transfer, all under citizen control.

“Supporting NFC for both iOS and Android devices is critical to developing a variety of more secure and convenient retail, payment, and ID verification use cases for mobile driver’s licenses and other forms of mobile ID,” said David Kelts, Director of Product Development, Mobile Identity, GET Group North America. “We are proud to be participating in the development of the ISO 18013-5 standard, together with Scytáles AB, and committed to ensuring our technology will protect citizen privacy and meet specifications for secure interoperability on all mobile device operating systems.”

David Kelts will be participating on the Secure Technology Alliance’s Industry Panel Review of Retail Use Cases of mDLs July 16th at the Atlanta Airport Marriott Hotel as part of the “Mobile Driver’s Licenses for Retail Use” workshop. From 2:00-2:45, this industry panel will feature mDL solution providers discussing their approaches, functionalities, and the use cases important for MDLs to succeed in retail identity transactions.

ISO 18013-5, which is expected to be published later this year, is the international standard that specifies the technical and interoperability requirements for mobile driver’s licenses (mDL). GET Group NA and Scytáles AB are ready to enable ISO 18013-5-compliant identity transactions between both iOS and Android devices and POS terminals already used today for payments. This will broaden the possibilities for retail, payment and ID verification use cases of mDLs, such as:

  • Age-based purchases where both age-verification and payment information can be transmitted in the same tap of a mobile device;
  • “Tap & Go” identity transactions at stadiums, federal buildings, airports, etc.;
  • Electronic identity and address verification for check cashing.
