Privacy Enhancing Mobile Credentials Work Group (PEMC WG)

Wiki Join Group Charter Participants Calendar Mail Minutes

The purpose of the proposed workgroup is to create a set of requirements and conformance criteria to protect the privacy of individuals holding or using mobile credentials such as mobile Driving Licenses. This includes, but is not restricted to, technology ecosystems based on ISO/IEC 18013-5 compliant mobile driving licenses. Existing standards can provide technical and transactional assurances of user choice and data minimization at the point of presentation of the credential, but do not provide assurances to the holders of mobile credentials that relying parties that may collect their identity attributes will use those attributes solely for the fulfillment of the purposes for which the mobile credential was presented. Failing to respect the consent of mobile credential holder or the legal authority of the verifier to collect the identity attributes could violate the privacy of the mobile credential holder.
