The new solution will be available on selected Samsung Galaxy smartphones
Samsung Electronics, the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), Bundesdruckerei (bdr), and Deutsche Telekom Security GmbH have announced the launch of Germany’s National electronic ID.
The new hardware-based security architecture will allow citizens to store their National ID on their smartphones along with eID. Once enrolled, their eID is transferred to a secure location on their phone.
This new mobile eID solution was created as part of the OPTIMOS 2.0 project. It aims is to create an open ecosystem that provides the technology and infrastructure for secure mobile authentication.
We’ve reported that Eftpos is testing a digital ID solution to access government services, after the proof of concept completion with 17 Australian businesses.
