Mobile devices are now a primary communication channel for many citizens and account for over 70% of all emergency calls. They are used to identify consumers for many services, such as banking, but how can they be used to save lives?
Working alongside mobile location, Mobile Identity seeks to provide relevant information to emergency services in a faster and more efficient way. Identity and other relevant information could be provided when an emergency call is made to help respond to the call in a fast and efficient way. It is also a useful tool to fight against false calls and prevent malicious attacks.
This document explores a new model for mobile identity, including the challenges for delivery, and includes EENA recommendations on how we should move forward.
