Secure identities for mobile services (Smart Services World I technology programme)

The OPTIMOS project is about creating a platform that will bring together identification solutions with other mobile services applications, and testing this platform by creating a national eTicketing system for public transport. The idea is to combine existing services, including electronic payment services, with secure identity solutions and deploy them on mobile devices that can be used in public transport. The findings from the project are then to be used in international standardisation work.
