KINEGRAM DIGITAL SEAL

Integrating the secure physical credential with mobile ID processes


KINEGRAM Digital Seal

Emerging technologies based on smartphones and other mobile devices promise convenient access to the ID verification processes. KINEGRAM Digital Seal, a copy-resistant feature, interlinks and interlocks the physical token with the mobile ID verification processes thereby ensuring that the secure credential, the biometrics and the mobile device can be used interchangeably. Government-issued secure credentials in the form of physical tokens continue to be one of the cornerstones for the establishment of a national identity infrastructure. By leveraging on the global infrastructure already available through cellular network providers, emerging technologies based on smartphones and other mobile devices promise convenient access to the ID verification processes for many stake-holders including border crossings inspectors, bankers and the individual tax-payer seeking government services. However, until it is possible to deploy these mobile ID processes globally and in a fully secure manner for all citizens, the physical token is likely to coexist with the mobile verification process for several years to come. How then do we ensure that the secure credential, the biometrics and the mobile device can be used interchangeably for ID verification? Solution concept KINEGRAM Digital Seal - a copy-resistant feature used to interlink and interlock the physical token with the emerging mobile ID verification processes.
