Gemalto unveiled Coesys mGov, a new mobile strong digital authentication solution that enables citizens to access online government services using a combination of their contactless national eID card and NFC phone.
Coesys mGov enables citizens to use their phones as an authentication and signature tool with an environment they can trust, opening the door to a rich array of eGov services. These range from social and health provision, such as family, employment or retirement, as well as driver’s license related services and health insurance benefits, to local public services and citizenship including on-line participation and e-voting with b oth security and privacy.
Coesys mGov helps governments and public authorities to enhance their trusted digital schemes, and deploy a national Mobile ID scheme complementary to identity programs. Authorities can meet the needs of modern, digitally connected societies and realize dramatic increases in the uptake of eGov services. It is also flexible enough to fit perfectly with a government’s existing digital identity and security strategy. For example, the level of authentication can be adapted according to the nature of online services being accessed.
To further simplify the user experience, when used in conjunction with Gemalto’s LinqUs Mobile ID, Coesys mGov supports the creation of derived secure credentials in the SIM card itself, or inside any other Secure Element available in the mobile phone, or in the cloud.
