Why Federal Agencies Should Leverage ISO 18013-5 Mobile Credentials Beyond Mobile Driver’s Licenses (Co-Presented With the Secure Technology Alliance)

Wednesday, May 17th

This session will explore why federal agencies should be interested in advancing implementation of mobile credentials. The technical model of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard for mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs), ISO 18013-5, has been recognized by both public- and private-sector entities and organizations as a viable and secure foundation for mobile credentials other than mDLs. ISO 18013-5 defines a mobile document (mDoc) structure that accommodates use-case specific custom identifiers and attributes. mDoc identifiers and attributes are cryptographically authenticated by relying parties, using a suite of interoperable interfaces which can support local and remote (offline and online) validation.
