Digital Driving Licence

by Great Apes

In Finland driving licenses are mainly used in two scenarios: Driving License validation and identification. Identification takes place in everyday situations, for example when picking up a postal package. In Finland Driving License is the de facto user ID although not officially declared as one. Currently EU legislation does not recognize DDL and therefore first trials will be limited to Finland.
Completely re-imagining how a digital ID could work, Trafi’s Digital Driving License (DDL) uses custom visual elements for providing the level of security that is sufficient for daily use – removing the need for separate infrastructure for identification (such as QR readers and other backend solutions). DDL also allows faster deployment of a Driving License and keeps all the user information automatically up to date. It removes the manual processes related to entering user information if changes occur or when the user initially receives their first driving license.
DDL has two main security levels: visual security and backend security.
The visual security level uses a gyroscope connected digital watermark combined with continuously animated dynamic OpenGL background, that supports interaction to prevent motion capture frauds. User information and image are always up to date, which makes it easier to identify the person. A barcode is generated from user information to match the barcode in a physical driving license. Visual level security can be dynamically altered and pushed to the devices if a breach is detected.
In the onboarding phase, the user is securely identified using banking credentials. Backend security includes a QR code that is generated on device and in the backend with a specified period of validity. This ensures that the information on the device matches the information in the backend and the user is not using a fake application. Backend security has some other additional security features which are not to be described here.
Disclaimer: DDL is currently in pilot development stage for iOS-platform. Android version will follow after the pilot phase. HiQ & Great Apes are not involved in the pilot phase.
