digital-drivers-licenseGemalto has received a two-year government grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology to team up with Colorado, Idaho, Maryland and Washington D.C. on a pilot program for the development of digital driver’s licenses.

Gemalto said Monday the grant requires the company to support the jurisdictions on the creation of a smartphone-based credential and the implementation of an interoperable system currently not available on the market.

Katerina Megas, NIST pilots program manager of the national strategy for trusted identities in cyberspace, said the company’s digital driver’s license system has presented guiding principles on trusted identities in cyberspace.

“Our goal is to work with organizations to determine the best technology and implementation strategy that will maintain both citizen privacy and security.”

The company noted that the digital driver’s license will act as a companion version of the physical ID card and look to address four main uses such as enrollment, updates to documents, attribute sharing and law enforcement.
