Ageto, NXP launch NFC platform for Germany's new ID cards

Friday 7 March 2014 | 07:51 CET | News
NXP and Ageto have introduced an NFC technology platform for national ID cards. The service is designed to allow German citizens to access the country's new personal identity cards. Using NXP's SmartMX technology, which is embedded in the cards and the AGETO eID client, citizens can use their cards wirelessly with NFC-capable mobile devices to prove their own identity and access services that government authorities offer. The service will be presented at the NXP booth at this year's CeBIT show, by the German Federal Ministry of the Interior.
