Digital driver's license gives users control of ID
Identity and security solutions provider IDEMIA (Reston, VA) has announced that it has put the functionality of a physical driver's license on the smart phone.

The IDEMIA secure digital license is available immediately to Oklahoma license holders on both iOS and Android. Developed in cooperation with the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS), Oklahoma Office of Management & Enterprise Services (OMES), and Innovate Oklahoma , it is the first and only digital US driver's license that is electronically verified against the state's DPS system of record and the first public launch of an ISO 18013-5 mobile driver's license in the United States.

"The Oklahoma Mobile ID fundamentally transforms the way citizens assert their identity, both online and in-person," says Matt Thompson, SVP, Civil and Mobile ID, IDEMIA Identity & Security. "This represents a watershed moment in user control of their identity information and ensures businesses and organizations who transact with the ID can be confident knowing the digital credential is accurate and up-to-date."

The Oklahoma Mobile ID builds on the security of the state's DPS enrollment process while adding extra layers of anti-fraud protection and privacy controls for the user. Businesses and organizations can verify customers' information on the digital ID against the latest DPS record. The ID is updated directly from the DPS system of record. The ID's simple verification interface, says the company, enables transactions to occur quickly, allowing businesses to keep the line moving and improve customer relationships.

Privacy options allow individuals to show only the amount of information needed to conduct a transaction. For example, those who show an ID to purchase alcohol can set the Mobile ID to a privacy mode that shows only a photo and verification that the user is over 21 – the amount of information needed for such a transaction.

David Ostrowe, Secretary of Digital Transformation and Administration for the State of Oklahoma says, "We are pleased to be one of the states leading the movement to offer secure, state issued identification on a smart phone. Oklahoma Mobile ID offers individuals more control of their personal
