Trusted identities for mobile devices and smart cards
HID Global has presented their list of top trends for 2017. They forecast a shift in the use of identity technology that will lead to increased adoption of mobile devices and the latest smart card technology. We can also expect greater emphasis and reliance on the cloud, and a radical new way of thinking of trust in smart environments and Internet of Things (IoT).
HID Global focuses on four significant trends in 2017 that will influence how organizations create, manage and use trusted identities in a broad range of existing and new use cases. During the coming weeks, the Future Lab will highlight each specific trend individually. First is the stronger adoption of mobile devices and advanced smart cards which will underscore the need for trusted identities.
Adoption of mobile devices and smart cards drive need for trusted identities
Consumerization of security. Similar to the adoption of consumer trends to IT in past years, 2017 will also see further consumerization of security, with heightened demand from users seeking to open doors, and login to cloud-based resources, as well as have personalized on-demand printing of documents, and to deploy printed credentials remotely or conduct other transactions and daily activities using trusted IDs on their phone, wearable or smart card.

Trusted IDs that integrate security, privacy and convenience will provide a new level of assurance to these applications and transactions, while being uniquely positioned to make secure access more personalized to the individual.
Identity relationship management. The industry will look towards complete identity relationship management that considers the need to grant access based on the context or circumstances for risk-appropriate authentication across trusted identities assigned to people, devices, data and things in smart offices, buildings and other environments that are becoming more connected every day.
