Secure Credential Interoperability


The objective of the Secure Credential Interoperability (SCI) initiative is to define requirements for an open specification which provides an interoperable access credential. The initial focus will be on mobile credentials. 

The SCI working group will identify existing and emerging standards relevant to the physical security industry, work to enhance them to support industry requirements for secure mobile credentials, and to encourage their adoption by our member companies and the industry. In addition, the group will review and vet specifications to assure they meet the organizations’ objective of being open and interoperable
