SK Telekom,KT,LG U +推出用于驾驶执照认证的区块链身份应用程序

2020-6-24 14:10

 

今天,韩国SK电信(SK Telekom)宣布与韩国电信(KT)和LG U+两家电信公司合作开发的一款基于区块链的数字身份应用将投入商业运营。这款名为“Pass”的应用程序可以验证用户的驾照,从而为不同的服务提供认证。


身份认证应用程序从2018年开始使用,在最近的更新中增加了数字驾照功能。每家电信公司都有自己的Pass应用程序,用户只能在其中一家公司注册。


一个应用程序的例子是,一个人证明自己达到饮酒年龄,却没有分享住址等个人信息。


该解决方案与国家警察厅和韩国公路交通管理局的许可证验证系统相关联。这允许对用户身份进行实时验证。该应用程序还链接到安装它的设备的身份,从而防止欺诈使用。


用户需要出示许可照片和应用程序显示的二维码进行认证。他们没有透露生日和地址等个人信息。为了保护隐私,驾照被加密并存储在用户的移动设备上。移动电话运营商表示,他们存储了运营这项服务所需的最低限度的个人数据,而且这些数据不能与自然人相关联。


SK电信的Lee Tong在声明中说:“这是韩国第一次提供全国性的数字驾照认证服务。”“通行证移动驾照认证服务将在未来迅速拓展使用领域。”以及移动金融交易。”


该解决方案主要执行以下功能-认证用户、SIM卡、PIN和生物识别、验证证书和允许通过电话号码进行数字签名。虽然最初的用例涉及到驾照身份验证,但这三家运营商计划将该解决方案扩展到其他身份验证服务。

 

便利店和驾驶考试


在韩国的CU和GS25连锁便利店,本署开发了一套即时应用程序,用以识别人员。目的是防止向未成年人出售烟酒。使用Pass应用程序,店员可以扫描手机应用程序上显示的条形码,以验证买家是否达到购买酒类的年龄。


与此同时,Pass还将在国家驾照考试中心用于驾照的续签和发放。市民将使用“通行证”应用程序而不是实体卡获得驾照。

 

其他数字身份企业


SK电信、KT和LG U+在过去几年中一直在积极探索基于区块链的数字身份。


这三家电信公司是最初的DID协会的一部分,该协会是一个由韩国科学与信息通信技术部和韩国互联网与安全局(KISA)主办的分散身份联盟。它使用了Hyperledger布料区块链。


在该财团命名之前,三人宣布他们正与三星、KEB Hana银行、友利银行和IT公司Koscom合作开发一款自我主权身份(SSI)应用。


与此同时,SK电信与德国电信在区块链数字身份方面有合作关系。

 

Today, South Korea’s SK Telekom announced the commercial launch of a blockchain-based digital identity app developed with telecom companies KT and LG U+. Called ‘Pass’, the app enables verification of the user’s driving license to enable authentication for different services.  

The identity authentication app has been around since 2018, and the digital driving license feature has been added in the recent update. Each telecom firm has its own Pass app and a person can only be registered with one of them.

An example of an application is a person proving they are of drinking age without sharing personal information like their address.

The solution is linked to the license verification system of the National Police Agency and the Korea Highway Traffic Authority. This allows a real-time verification of a user’s identity. The app also links to the device identity on which it is installed, thus preventing fraudulent use.  

The user needs to show the license photo and the QR code the app displays for authentications when asked. Personal information, such as birthdate and address, are not divulged. For privacy, the driving license is encrypted and stored on the user’s mobile device. The mobile phone operators say they store the minimum personal data necessary to operate the service, and that data cannot be associated with a natural person.

“This is the first time in Korea to provide a nationwide digital driver’s license verification service,” said Lee Tong from SK Telekom in its announcement. “Pass mobile driving license verification service will be rapidly expanded in the future to expand the field of use. And mobile for financial transactions.”

The solution primarily performs the following functions — authenticate the user, the SIM card, the PIN and biometrics, validate certificates and allow digital signatures through phone numbers. While the initial use case involves driver’s license authentication, the three carriers plan to scale the solution for other authentication services. 

Convenience stores and driving tests

An immediate use case has been developed for the identification of persons at CU and GS25 convenience store chains in South Korea. The goal is to prevent the sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors. Using the Pass app, the store employee can scan the barcode displayed on the mobile app to verify if the buyer is of age to purchase liquor. 

Meanwhile, Pass will also be used at the National Driver’s License Test Center for renewal and issuance of a license. The citizens will be given the license using the ‘Pass’ app instead of a physical card. 

Other digital identity ventures 

SK Telekom, KT, and LG U+ have been actively exploring blockchain-based digital identity over the past few years. 

The three telcos are part of the Initial DID Association, a decentralized identity consortium hosted by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA). It uses the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain.

Before the consortium had a name, the trio announced they were working with Samsung, KEB Hana Bank, Woori Bank, and IT company Koscom to build a self-sovereign identity (SSI) app

Meanwhile, SK Telekom has a partnership with Deutsche Telekom for blockchain digital identity.
