GET Mobile Identity
GET Group NA’s mobile identity solution provides a high-assurance ID on a user’s mobile device, helping combat identity fraud with a more convenient, secure and instant alternative to traditional physical ID documents. GET Mobile ID utilizes formidable data encryption algorithms and communication security measures to reduce identity theft and the consequences thereof.
The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) 18013-5 will specify the technical and interoperability requirements for Mobile Drivers Licenses (mDL). ISO 18013–5 standard is a Draft International Standard expected to be published next year in 2021. The complete document is available here. The current standard supports data exchange for attended online and offline transmission. All are encouraged to implement, and you may inquire about GET Mobile Verify and our Verify Engine/SDK.

STA Mobile Driver's License (mDL) Resource Site
- mDL Connection is a resource from the Secure Technology Alliance, the digital security industry’s premier association. This website supplements the Alliance’s mission to educate the U.S. market and accelerate adoption and use of state-issued mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs).
- Mobile Driver License (mDL) Initiative - To drive adoption of mDLs, businesses and services providers who rely on customers having trusted forms of identification – from retailers and financial institutions to healthcare providers and other organizations – need to become educated on mDLs and evaluate how they could benefit from a strongly vetted, standards-based mobile ID.
- SECURE TECHNOLOGY ALLIANCE WHITE PAPER
The mobile driver’s license (mDL) market is developing rapidly in the U.S., with states in varying stages of implementation. The Secure Technology Alliance white paper, The Mobile Driver’s License (mDL) and Ecosystem, was developed to help stakeholders understand how mDLs will change the way identification is managed. It answers essential questions around the standards, features and uses of an mDL; why someone should use or accept an mDL; and how the mDL will meet expectations of trustworthiness.
- The Mobile Driver’s License and Ecosystem Webinar Series - The Secure Technology Alliance Identity Council hosted a four-part webinar series to discuss mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs) and the impact they will have on identity verification as more states adopt the technology. Recordings of all four webinars are available here.

Global Identity Interoperability Initiatives
Mobile Identities will need to have the legal and policy backing of government and law in order to be effectively used wherever regulation exists – for example, age-based purchases. In each continent around the globe, governments or public-private partnerships are forging the rules of identity and the operating environment in which all parties can trust transactions.
