HID Global launches secure identity services
HID Global has significantly expanded its offering of on-demand card badging services to create the industry’s first all-in-one, web-based source for all credential provisioning and management requirements for traditional badges on plastic cards, for tokens, and for digital credentials that can be carried on NFC-enabled smartphones.
HID Global’s Secure Identity Services is a comprehensive suite of web-based services that help customers address every aspect of provisioning and managing personalised, secure credentials, both today and in the future. This includes managing the daily flow of ID card badge requests and large-volume re-badging projects, combining multiple technology platforms onto one card, and deploying and managing mobile credentials carried on users’ NFC-enabled smartphones.
The first to deliver over-the-air mobile credential technology, HID Global currently offers mobile credential services on selected NFC-enabled BlackBerry smartphones used in the enterprise, and plans to expand these mobile services to support a broad range of credentials and NFC smartphone platforms across all major network operators.
HID Global’s Secure Identity Services are available for cards, mobile devices and tokens. Card services include key management, anti-counterfeiting, custom graphics and full personalisation using a wide range of commercial credential technologies. The company also enables customers to meet all of the compliance requirements for issuing PIV-I cards used by federal agencies and their contractors.
In addition to streamlining traditional badging projects, the new Secure Identity Services will also enable customers to augment and/or replace mechanical keys and traditional card badges with mobile credentials on NFC smartphones, while managing all credential needs from the same web-based portal using one convenient dashboard.
Users can create secure identity for NFC-enabled handsets and digital keys using the service’s cloud-based portal in a managed-service context, and then provision them over the air onto their smartphones. These secure identities can be used to open residential locks, access on-line physical access control readers or NFC-enabled electromechanical locks and log on to PCs. All management can be performed over-the-air, including dynamic, context-based rule setting. In the future, users will also be able to share digital cards and keys with authorised users via NFC “tap-n-give” provisioning, and generate one-time password (OTP) soft tokens for network access.HID Global’s Secure Identity Services are available now. Mobile services are also available now, for iCLASS credentials on BlackBerry Bold 9930 and BlackBerry Curve 9370 smartphones from Verizon Wireless, managed by administrators using BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES).
