In 2015, the Silicon Trust, an international ID security industry platform,  will host the first of a series of ID Trends Forums. The objective of the day is to shed light on a topic the Silicon Trust believes to be key in the coming year. A mixture of international keynote speakers and industry working groups are the basis of a Silicon Trust Media Statement that will be published after the event.

The first Silicon Trust Forum is focussing on the growing trend of Mobile ID and secure mobile devices. It is going to evaluate the feasibility of implementations where secure ID attributes and credentials are either stored on the mobile or where the mobile device acts as a secure reader for a token, such as a smart card.

With two application scenarios in focus, payment and government ID, the experts in this forum will debate to what extent the public sector can benefit from private sector experiences. We have invited key speakers from both, the world of finance and from the public sector, to share their insights into the up and coming challenges of Mobile ID.
