Identity Lifecycle Management

Key Elements of Our Solutions

Managing Re-issuance, Updates and Revocations

Credential lifecycle management becomes a critical challenge after government agencies have issued secure citizen IDs and traveler credentials. When it’s time for re-issuance, updating, enhancement or revocation, it’s essential to know the current status and historical use of the credential. In the case of a mobile-derived credential, it’s also important to know which operating system and what kind of digital certificates are being used.

Measurable Benefits

Lower Operating Costs

Lower Operating Costs

Today, managing travel documents, national IDs, licenses and other credentials involves many manual processes that require both the citizen and the credential to be physically present. Our cost-effective solutions automate the manual processes and allow you to re-issue, update, track or revoke credentials anywhere, anytime.

Citizen satisfaction Levels

Citizen Satisfaction Levels

Citizens are often apprehensive about the process for re-issuing or updating their IDs and credentials. The thought of waiting in line — often during the middle of a workday — can make the process especially unappealing. When emergency replacement is required, the anxiety only increases. Our solution automates these processes, making them more convenient.

Increased Credential Security

Increased Credential Security

Our lifecycle management solution features advanced public key cryptography and certificate management technologies to ensure security throughout the credential management process. Our technologies reduce the risk associated with forged, altered, stolen or otherwise compromised data.

Accurate Identification and Strong Security

Accurate Identification and Strong Security

It’s often difficult for border agents and other officers to determine the authenticity and validity of a credential in the field. Our lifecycle management solution leverages PKI and digital certificate technologies that allow for secure authentication at the border or in remote areas.
