Mobile Validator SDK: The Tool Powering Digital Identity Wallets

Developer testing the Scytáles mobile identity wallet app

In today’s data-driven digital era, the security and privacy of online identification are of paramount importance to help us keep our information private and confidential. This is where mobile identification comes into play: a safe way to prove who we are online. This is possible by using our officially issued IDs on our mobile phones, with Government-issued mobile applications (like the Mobile Driving Licence app from the State of Utah, US, of which Scytáles is the technology provider) or even by using a Digital ID Wallet that includes multiple ID documents (with Scytáles being the developer of the European Digital ID Wallet - the EUDI Wallet - which is going to be rolled out to more than 400 million citizens).


However, how exactly can other apps, services or systems connect with mobile ID/wallet apps to retrieve the necessary information? Scytáles Mobile Validator Software Development Kits (SDKs) provide a secure, compliant, cheaper and with a shorter time-to-market solution.

 


What is the Mobile Validator SDK?

The Scytáles Mobile Validator SDKs work as embedded tools within applications for interacting with mobile ID systems. They encompass several different tasks and scenarios and have the function of initiating validation requests, securely retrieving data from a mobile ID or wallet, and guaranteeing communication between the user’s mobile ID and your service.


  • Embedded toolkits: The Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK is an easy and cost-effective way to make your services communicate with a mobile ID or wallet.

  • Verification request: When your service needs to validate a user’s identity or some of their attributes, the Mobile Validator SDK sends a secure request to the user’s mobile ID/wallet phone app.

  • Secure data retrieval: Once the user approves a request, their information is then securely retrieved by the Mobile Validator SDK into your service.

  • Communication bridge: The Mobile Validator SDK acts as a mediator that handles all the data exchange smoothly and securely between a user’s mobile ID or wallet and your system.


The Mobile Validator SDK simplifies data entry or login process (i.e., electronic forms), and even replaces time-consuming validation methods of physical IDs, ensuring the same level of assurance as officially issued physical IDs (like Citizen Cards, Driving Licences or Passports) just by the tap of a button.

 


Benefits of the Mobile Validator SDK

Besides the obvious benefits for businesses, the Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK provides developers and their users various benefits, making it a win-win technology.


  • Simplified Development: Building mobile IDs/wallet validation features from scratch into an existing system can be challenging and requires great effort and time, which is costly for your business. Scytáles Mobile Validator SDKs make mobile ID integration much easier with the already built-in functionalities. This allows developers to essentially cut a corner hence saving valuable development time and effort. While the SDKs take care of these technological aspects, your developers can concentrate on the core features and components of your systems.

  • Faster Time to Market: Developers can save a huge amount of time by integrating certified pre-built ID validation mechanisms into their systems. As a result, they can roll out their products quicker to the market and unlock earning opportunities faster.

  • Reduced Maintenance: The mobile identification technology is evolving continuously, and the management of updates is one of its burdensome parts. The Scytáles Mobile Validator SDKs take care of all updates and compatibility issues on the backend, making them no longer the concern of the developers.

  • Enhanced User Experience (UX): Features like the ones offered by the Scytáles Mobile Validator, allow you to simplify processes and reduce manual data input by your users, while at the same time ensuring that the personal information you are retrieving is from an official ID document with the same level of assurance as its physical counterpart. As a result, users undergo a faster and more convenient experience when interacting with your business, thus enhancing customer satisfaction.

  • Increased security: The Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK uses strong encryption when communicating with the user’s mobile ID/wallet and validation servers and operates under the regulations and compliance frameworks which help systems comply with strict data protection and privacy legislations.

  • Greater Control: With the Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK, you can request user information you actually need and identify which is necessary and which is optional.

 

Where can the Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK be used?

Our SDK can make a significant impact across various industries, some examples are:

  • Financial Services: Mobile IDs and related validation mechanisms can be used for onboarding new customers, login authentication and secure transactions.

  • Travel and Hospitality: Spedious airport and hotel check-ins using mobile IDs/wallets (which is already possible in Utah with Scytáles technology, as well as in other US States) is a huge facilitator when travelling.

  • Online Gambling: Fraud prevention and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulatory compliance are crucial for online gambling platforms. The Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK can be used to ensure the official identity and age of users.

  • Retail and e-Commerce: Verifying a customer’s age in online purchases can be secure and uncomplicated when integrated with a mobile ID/wallet verification process.

  • Government Services: The Scytáles Mobile Validator SDK can also be used to simplify governmental processes by ensuring secure access to e-government platforms.


Our Mobile Validator SDK allows all validation scenarios, in real-time in online and offline modes, over the counter and over the web/remotely, providing you with tailored options to your exact needs.
