We are excited to announce a remarkable achievement in the digitisation of access to physical premises using Digital Identity. As part of a a collaboration between Oribi Group (https://www.oribi.nl/en) and Covr Security (https://lnkd.in/dkynfKyK), our recent demonstration at a major European port marks a significant milestone in this joint effort.

The project centred around the development and deployment of the ShowID system, an innovative digital process designed to revolutionize the way port authorities (or any other business for that matter) manages physical visitor access. This system was meticulously crafted and demonstrated at a European port (details to follow…), showcasing its unique capabilities.

Our approach was to simplify the visitor registration process. With ShowID, visitors can register their credentials digitally in advance, leading to a seamless and more secure entry on subsequent visits. The system integrates ID verification, ticket claiming, and secure access control, all streamlined through a user-friendly app and customer portal.

What sets ShowID apart is not just the reduction in waiting times at the gates or the lowered administrative burdens; it’s about how we’ve developed a re-usable digital ID that is only stored in the users device (and shared only when given permission by the users), but also the detection of unauthorized access attempts, as our ID can only be created using a passport or national ID that contains a chip (which we validate against). The result is a system that not only bolsters security but also optimizes the operational workflow.

This project is a testament to the power of collaboration in achieving innovative solutions. As part of the EU’s Horizon research and development programme, we are indebted to SecureIT (www.secureit-project.eu) for their support and funding, which was instrumental in bringing this vision to life.

As we prepare to share more details about this ground-breaking project, we invite you to reach out to us directly if you’re interested in learning more or exploring how ShowID can benefit your operations. Stay tuned for more updates and a deeper dive into this transformative security solution.
