MyTAG Secure Proof of I.D. is a secure ID card system which cannot be copied or cloned. The patented technology brings ID cards into the modern age, through a unique proof of presence and proof of compliance solution.
When a personalised ID card is checked, the officer simply taps the card against a mobile phone or other NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled device and has instant proof that it is valid and genuine via cryptographic functionality. Each ID card contains a trusted tag. When the card is tapped on the NFC enabled device, the device receives a URL with a unique cryptographic code from the tag, which displays all the data and pictures on the device. Identity can hence be visually verified against the photo on the card plus any detailed personal information, training records and equipment use permits can be displayed.
MyTAG provides instant notification to determine it is the real Secure ID card used (versus someone who has copied or shared the URL code, or manually typed the URL into a web browser). The functionality prevents a URL from being used multiple times without a physical tap, as verification will fail, and makes the tag impossible to clone.
When the tag is tapped its location is identified, so every valid tap implies “proof of presence” at a known time, allowing time and attendance applications.
Today, ID cards are used by in a huge range of public and private situations, from driving licenses, building entry systems and construction sites to membership organisations and clubs. The challenge is that most existing cards can be copied or cloned, allowing misuse, and causing safety and security risks.
