eDebate: The Evolution of Digital Driving License for Citizens
The introduction of an eID /mDL into what has long been a physical credential world is challenging. The technical challenges are not insignificant, however, of even greater significance is ensuring the adoption and acceptance of an eID/mDL in a way that exceeds the ID validation process of today. Moving from a physical ID credential to an electronic/digital version brings with it the potential of increased reliability, verifiability, trust, and convenience. Ensuring we take advantage of these benefits is not only necessary, but all of our responsibility. During this session, we’ll explore different views on how we successfully bridge the gap between today’s sole reliance on physical documents and human validation to a world where eID is trusted and commonplace.
