“PERSONAL USES OF PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION SYSTEMS”
Identity confirmation is increasingly required for a variety of purposes, from verifying the eligibility to physical access to premises, to logical access to networks to access to online services, to “cloud based” applications, and to use of modern payment systems. New solutions adopting a variety of technologies are being developed and are ready to be massively deployed on a large scale. Such technologies involve new developments and workflows at infrastructure level, at server level, at network terminal level, at user terminal level. Some of them are more advanced and mature (e.g. online banking) some of them are at the beginning of a potentially massive and transversal growth (e.g. mobile payment through NFC technology).
All such uses are extremely significant and shall play an important role in our future life. However Personal Identification Systems can play an important role also for more private uses such as access to home computer and devices, home facilities, home entertainment, home data storage, and, similarly, to sustain uses at social and community level, including schools, users groups, small offices. In other words there is a number of additional uses of Personal Identification Systems that can help making more secure the “shared use” of objects, devices, facilities and online resources or even “enable” completely new ways to share objects, devices, facilities and online resources for personal uses.
The talk aims at addressing new requirements and new opportunities for the personal uses of personal identification systems and to discuss the possible applications on personal devices, especially mobile communication devices. In addition the talk also attempts to give an overview of the state of the art, on existing applications, and on future trends. Finally, it aims at initiate a discussion on other possible applications of personal identification systems in a social and community-based environment.
