What is MIA?
My Identity App (MIA) combines traditional printed ID documents and electronic identities (eID) into a platform-independent smartphone app embedded in an ID ecosystem. MIA aims for transparent identification and authentification in the physical and digital world while security, privacy, data protection, usability and user trust are at equilibrium.
Who is MIA for?
MIA is for states with a need for a highly secure and very efficient governmental ID solution as an add-on for traditional ID documents in order to address digitalization matters in the public sector. The same solution can be used as an eID for businesses (e.g. finanancial, gaming or leisure industry, etc.) and governments demanding an easy to use identification and two-factor authentication service.
MIA provides proper means of preventing identity theft as there is no need to store personal data on the smartphone.
New documents and attributes can be easily added to MIA.
Lost or stolen IDs can be easily revoked an renewed which saves time and money for the customer and clients.

MIA is an identity management solution available on state of the art technologies. MIA is by default in data minimization mode allowing for no data to be stored on the smartphone. Personal data is always retrieved from already existing reliable databases that hold the citizen’s personal information. The security of MIA is not based on specific hardware solutions but rather is ensured by a secure process.
MIA is authenticated by the backend via client certificates, which are stored on the users’ smartphone. The certificate is stored in a secure way by using state of the art security technologies offered by mobile operating systems. All data transfers are secured using Transport Layer Security (TLS). There is no data stored on the smartphone and personal data is never transmitted directly between smartphones, but always retrieved from a trusted data source. Every data request must be approved by the person to whom the information belongs.
