Mobile Identification

The goID ecosystem is based on a field-proven technology that enables the issuance, lifecycle management and verification of mobile identities while addressing the identification standards of the 21st century and beyond.

HID goID™ - More than an identity on the phone

goID delivers many more functions and efficiencies than physical identity documents. Key features include:

  • Remote Provisioning - Using goID, a mobile ID can be provisioned to a smartphone by way of over-the-air-distribution, making it easier to assign or revoke a citizen’s credential in real-time.
  • Offline Verification - With goID, the mobile phone and/or verification device can be offline, enabling a mobile ID to be used even when not connected to the network.
  • Distance Verification - Verification of a citizen’s identity can be made at a safe distance — up to 20 meters (60 feet) away.
  • Customized Design - HID’s goID is completely customizable; governments can adapt the application to match the needs of their particular nation, agency or use case.
  • Data Privacy – Role-based access prevents citizens from sharing all their data during verification, ensuring that their privacy is always protected.
