Driver’s licenses – next steps


Day 2 - May 1

Driving licenses (DLs) across the world are undergoing a period of unprecedented change – from the exciting move towards mobile DLs, to their augmentation in the physical world with initiatives giving card-based licenses additional functionality, such as physical access control and public transportation.

This session take a deep dive into the progress of standardization work under way in the area of mDLs – particularly those established by AAMVA and ISO. It will also discuss recent mDL pilots and products, and discuss pertinent legislation.


Introduction Loffie Jordaan, Business Solutions Architect, American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), USA


Policing and mobile driver's licenses: Redefining safety and identity in the digital age
Rob Mikell, Director of Business Development for Government Mobile Solutions, IDEMIA, USA

Imagine a world where traffic stops are safer for police officers, drivers, and passengers. Mobile driver's license (mDL) technology offers a gateway to this world, where police officers can conduct traffic stops, identify drivers and passengers, and run warrant checks while both parties remain in their vehicles. With secure transmission and real-time license updates, officers know exactly who they are dealing with and drivers know they are being approached by a real police officer and not an imposter.

This presentation begins with a description of mDL and is followed by a discussion of the ways in which mobile technology can protect the police during encounters with the public. The presentation will include demonstrations of mDL fundamentals, including:

•    Biometric enrollment, to link mDL with smartphone
•    Face recognition capabilities
•    Security features
•    Remote transmission of mDL data to sources such as in-car laptops
•    Overview of the Verify app

In addition to the fundamentals of mDL, the speaker will address common concerns about mDLs, and discuss universal standards established by AAMVA and ISO to ensure that mDLs are interoperable from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The presentation will conclude with a look at mDL pilots and products, and a discussion of legislation related to the mDL.

•    Hear how mobile technology provides law enforcement with the tools for accurately verifying the identity of citizens during a traffic stop, and for interacting safely with drivers and passengers;
•    Understand how the mobile driver’s license (mDL) incorporates mobile technology and biometrics to transform the driver’s licence into a trusted identity document;
•    Learn about the mDL pilots across the country, and the benefits of mDL to policing.


mDL Interoperability and use: Standardization progress and vision
Loffie Jordaan, Business Solutions Architect, American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), USA

Physical driver licenses are ‘interoperable’ by virtue of that fact that they can be visually read and tactilely evaluated. In the case of a mDL, different methods are required to verify and authenticate the document. Given how driver licenses are being used today, it is important that these methods are interoperable between Issuing Authorities. Interoperability will also be key to the possible use of a mDL to confirm the mDL holder’s identity in an unattended setting (e.g. via the Internet). This presentation will elaborate on the progress and vision of standardization work under way in this area.


OSPT Alliance: Facilitating the use of Open Standards for e-Drivers’ Licenses in Brazil
Luiz Guimarães, OSPT Alliance member representative, OSPT Alliance, Brazil

This presentation will explain why the OSPT Alliance’s open, non-proprietary standard, CIPURSE, has been specified for a new card-based driving licence scheme in Brazil. Delegates will receive an insight into:
•    How the project uses CIPURSE to protect a driver’s personal data – including a photograph and fingerprints – for ID verification;
•    The benefits that CIPURSE provides, such as allowing law-enforcement officers to read the data on a driving licence via an NFC smartphone app, in any location;
•    How and why the advanced security mechanisms of CIPURSE’s unique cryptographic protocol are ideal for ID functionality;
•    Next steps for the driving licence project and an overview of OSPT Alliance’s activity in the ID sector.
