Updated: Mobile-ID brought to the market

Estonian mobile network operator EMT in-cooperation with AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus has brought to the market a new service - a Mobile-ID. The service allows a person to identify him/herself by using a mobile phone or give a digital signature.
”Since a mobile phone is with a person at all times, it gives greater freedom for performing transactions that require personal identification, like using internet banking services, and also signing documents digitally”, said Tõnu Grünberg, Director of Development and Technology with EMT.
General Manager with AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus Ain Järv shows optimism:
"Mobile-ID is a remarkable step in development of Estonia as innovative country – in the world we are at the frontline with this service. Already now, there is a great interest towards this service from different countries, foremost from European experts”

Looks like Mobile Identity is a development of the traditional online authentication and digital signing; the SIM card of one’s mobile phone works as an identity tool.
