Secure Technology Alliance white paper explores mobile ID

27/03/17

The Secure Technology Alliance explores new authentication mechanisms and use cases related to mobile ID in a new paper.

The white paper “Mobile Identity Authentication,” was developed by the Secure Technology Alliance Mobile Council, and can be downloaded here.

Mobile identity (ID) authentication is the process of validating the identity of a mobile device user. It can rely on a number of on-device technologies to identify a user reliably and conveniently.

In this white paper, the Secure Technology Alliance provides an overview of mobile ID authentication, highlights use cases that rely on secure user credentials stored on a mobile device, and provides perspectives on how emerging technologies and standards are addressing the growing need for mobile ID authentication.

“Mobile ID authentication provides an answer to the security vs. usability conundrum that many organizations face with authentication, especially now that users expect to use their mobile devices to connect to services without manual entry of personal information that could be compromising their security,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance.

“By reading this white paper, security-minded professionals across a wide range of industries will understand the benefits and challenges of mobile ID authentication, and get several recommendations on the best practices for implementation.”
