Proof of identity
Secure identity card system improves safety and security
Each personalised ID card contains a trusted tag, and when it is tapped against a mobile phone or other NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled device, there is instant proof that it is valid and genuine. When the card is tapped, the NFC 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 Proof of Identity 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). This functionality prevents a URL from being used multiple times without a physical tap, as verification will fail, and also 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 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.
MyTAG Proof of Identity is covered by US patent No:10,102,364, entitled “Verification of both identification and presence over a network.”
MyTAG Proof of Identity provides unique data which can be used to authenticate identity, improve security and prove location at a given time.
