HID Global Helps Secure the Internet of Things

HID Global, a provider of secure identity solutions, released the cloud-based HID Trusted Tag Services platform, which combines trusted tags and existing secure cloud authentication services to allow mobile devices using near field communications (NFC) technology in Internet of Things (IoT) applications to read the identities of everyday objects.

For example, NFC-enabled devices can authenticate the value of a luxury item or verify a home-health aide visiting a patient’s home by tapping HID Trusted Tags that are embedded in the corresponding item or somewhere in the home. The tags facilitate the transfer of secure information because they do not require users to modify their devices or download apps. HID Trusted Tags have security and privacy attributes that change every time they are used, leaving an audit trail and making sure the taps can’t be cloned.

“By enabling smartphones to effortlessly double as tag readers and communicate with our authentication service, HID Global is helping organizations to easily expand into the IoT,” says Marc Bielmann, HID Global’s VP and managing director of identification technologies. “HID Trusted Tag Services enable trusted transactions and instill confidence that individuals scanning the tags are both who and where they claim to be.”
