The collaboration strategically positions IDEMIA, which currently serves as the top supplier of driver’s licenses in the United States. Remarkably, the company issues over 55 million ID cards and their digital equivalents in the US, underscoring its capabilities and extensive reach in this field.
Mobile driver’s licenses represent the forefront of identification technology, with numerous use cases ranging from age-restricted purchases to expedited airport security checks. These certified digital IDs, authenticated and issued by state DMVs, ensure that personal information is securely stored on the user’s device, all under the complete control of the license holder, thereby elevating convenience and security in everyday activities.
In addition to collaborating with Arizona and Iowa, Samsung is actively engaging with several more early-adopting states and will work alongside the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on a pilot program to accept mobile driver’s licenses at 25 federalized airports where the technology is currently available. IDEMIA, a long-time partner of the TSA and the supplier of TSA Credential Authentication Technology (CAT) readers in over 120 U.S. airport locations, plays a pivotal role in enabling this technology.
