Intercede (London Stock Exchange AIM: IGP), the producer of MyID, a world-leader in identity and credential management systems, will be presenting its innovative mobile credentialing solution for smart phones at the tenth annual Smart Card Alliance Government Conference in Washington DC from November 2nd.

Attendees of the leading showcase for government projects in ID and security will be able to discover how Intercede MyID® is leading the way in over-the-air (OTA) provisioning of secure identity credentials to smart phones. Furthermore, delegates will see how Intercede’s solution enables these ID credentials to be used over an NFC interface to gain access to secure physical and logical assets.

With the technological complexities now solved we are working with policy makers to ensure any final barriers to adoption are removed.”

Built on the Intercede MyID® Identity and Credential Management System, our solution unites the very latest in mobile technologies to deliver tomorrow’s security today.”

Intercede can be found at booth 209 at the Smart Card Alliance Government Conference in Washington DC between November 2nd and 4th.
