HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, is driving an initiative for partners to develop NFC Trusted Tag applications with the launch of its HID Trusted Tag Services Software Developer Tool Kit (SDK). Operating within the Trusted Identity Platform (TIP), HID Trusted Tag Services is the company’s latest NFC innovation that offers a cloud-based service to confer trust and provide security to readily available NFC tags. In addition to its new SDK, HID Global is seeking to extend technology licences to qualified partners to enable third-party development of novel internet-of-things NFC applications using its HID Trusted Tag Services.
HID Global’s focus areas of use for new applications include:
– Authentication of items such as birth certificates, college diplomas, deeds of trust, and certificates of authenticity for luxury or unique items, as well as high-value works of art and other documents
– Secure data management for trusted chain of custody, asset service history, warranty records, secure logging and other secure transactions
– Trusted authorisations, including a wide range of user scenarios such as access to URLs and innovative smartphone applications such as a virtual intercom and others
“Since introducing HID Trusted Tag Services last November, HID Global has created a comprehensive developer programme for partners to accelerate time to market and cultivate a broad ecosystem of NFC Trusted Tag solutions,” said Mark Robinton, manager, Technology Innovation, with HID Global. “We invite partners to join HID Global in developing new and exciting NFC applications that offer convenient solutions for brand protection and document validation, secure data logging and enabling trusted actions, while providing a platform for managing the future internet of things.”
HID Global will also demonstrate its new proof-of-concept Virtual Intercom application for the first time worldwide and showcase additional NFC Trusted Tag use cases at RFID Journal Live! 2013 in the company’s booth #722 from April 30 – May 3 at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Flordia.
