Digital ID Data Capture for Airport Security

Socket Mobile has the tools you need to integrate Digital ID data capture for Airport Security


The Future of Airport Security

With airports already testing digital ID acceptance at security checkpoints, it's clear that passengers around the world are ready to step into the future of mobile credentials. Digital IDs are growing in popularity among consumers, and we believe airport security checkpoints will be the first to see a surge in mobile credentials from frequent flyers. There is an increasing need for government applications to build capabilities for digital ID integration and for airports to be equipped with the correct devices to scan these credentials out of the application.

Socket Mobile's barcode scanners and NFC readers make digital ID integration easy, even for high-security government processes such as airport security. We provide reliable solutions that quickly capture data from the digital ID and transfer it to the mobile application. Security officials can then review the data presented and verify the individual's identity. Our scanners and readers are reliable, easy to integrate with applications, and ultimately provide a seamless digital ID data capture experience for passengers making their way through airport security checkpoints.
