The company´s Scandinavian roots and values are an important asset, as well as its extensive network of key players and legislators in 60 countries around the world.

Scytáles issues and personalizes the software into smartphones and handhelds devices, as well as back-end systems, along with validation mechanisms via our software platform, which can be cloud-based or stand-alone deployed at our customers/partners premises. 

The company is working in the area of driving licenses, identity area as per national IDs, travel documents and resident permits, healthcare cards, corporate cards, smart- & loyalty cards within the government & enterprise areas as an alternative and/or strong complement where identification and validation is going mobile.

Through handheld and hardware devices, Scytáles' customers and partners are offered the opportunity to perform operations in either "on-line" or "off-line" modes, with communication protocols as NFC, BTLE, Wifi Aware, QR-Codes, PDF417, HTTP/S, OIDC etc., for making Authentication, Traceability and Connectivity via customer and partner interfaces, as well as access digitally stored information in System of Records and Big Data/Data Exchange Services.


Scytáles is a frontrunner in the ISO international standardization work that is under development— ISO/IEC 18013-5 ISO/IEC JTC1/SC17/WG10, “Personal Identification – ISO-Compliant Driving Licence – Part 5: Mobile Driving Licence Application”, Part 7 among other ISO/CEN WGs related to our developments and WG memberships.

The standard will specify the technical and interoperability requirements for mDLs/mIDs and expand mobile identity use cases around the world. We are fully compliant with this standard as per today with successful participation on the Interoperability Tests.
