How they describe themselves: ID.me provides a digital Identity Gateway designed to empower individuals to prove their identity online while controlling how their personal data is shared. ID.me provides identity verification services to well-known organizations, including: USAA, Under Armour, NASA, the United States Department of Treasury, and Maine. In 2014, ID.me became one of four companies in the United States of America to earn federal accreditation to bind a legal identity to a digital login. In 2016, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs selected ID.me’s Identity Gateway platform to provide a unified authentication experience for citizens interacting with the VA through Vets.gov. ID.me specializes in authentication and federated identity.
How they describe their product/innovation: ID.me streamlines account opening, regulatory compliance, and customer support for FIs and FinTech companies through an innovative approach to identity proofing and federated identity that is accredited by the federal government. ID.me will demonstrate innovative identity proofing techniques where ID.me can wrap and “trust elevate” a social login such as Google+ with identity proofing and a universal MFA layer in a manner that makes the digital login a form of legal identification. The company will also demonstrate the benefits of federated identity by illustrating the user experience for a new customer who had previously been authenticated by a different regulated entity using ID.me’s Identity Gateway.
