Daniel Ballin, HID’s director of product management, virtual identity, shows off HID’s Virtual Credentials.


HID Global unveiled its new Virtual Credentials — called its idBank System. The idBank System enables the delivery of HID Proximity, HID Indala Proximity, CASI Proximity and HID iCLASS security credential formats to unique forms of radio-frequency technology-enabled tokens. The tokens look like another ID card or credit card, but of course are much more.

Daniel Ballin, HID’s director of product management, virtual identity, showed SDM the first product form to use HID’s Virtual Credentials — Privaris’ plusID line of personal biometric identity verification tokens for both physical and logical access. The idBank system provides users with the ability to emulate HID and other popular access control credential formats using form factors other than the traditional card.
