While pursuing our aspirations of developing mobile applications that are valuable to professionals, we at Nerd became aware of the deficiency of reliable applications providing mobile identity solutions for electronic signature. This led us to commence the development of a mobile app, called Mobile ID, that would cover the detected gap.
Mobile ID is an mobile application that enables Mobile PKI services on Google’s Android through a pure software-based implementation. Opposed to costly hardware security modules, Mobile ID utilizes various cryptographic technologies providing on-board secure storage and sensitive data processing.
To securely store keys on the device, Nerd Labs has developed a special key-store module called Server Protected Identification. This module encrypts the user’s keys using modern, cutting-edge technologies and locks it behind an authentication server. The system has been designed to be simple, understandable and easy to use.
Users are only a PIN away from unlocking their key and performing PKI operations.
Our vision is to make “digital signing available to every pocket”.
