  • Verifying your passport with your phone
    Dr. Maarten Wegdam, Innovalor
    Identity theft in the online and offline world is a big problem. Often organizations use the infamous ‘kopietje paspoort’ which provides very little assurance on your identity, allows for easy identity theft and shares all identity attributes on the identity document contrary to only those that are relevant. Leveraging the RFID chip in your passport in combination with your NFC capable smartphone can help here: use your phone to verify the authenticity of your passport. In the presentation will be explained how the police and banks are doing this and which lessons are learned.
