Innovative and secure Identification in a mobile world on the example of the Austrian e-card


This project is dealing with transferring the physical e-card to a mobile device. The technical solution builds on already existing infrastructure (GINA box, o-card). Patients should be able to identify themselves as insurance-holder without a card reader and are in need of a tool to authenticate their declaration of will. The project will base on the already existing citizen card concept and examine how to transfer this to mobile devices.
