Experts from Government and Industry will share their perspectives and learnings around the implementation of digital Identity and mDL in North America, as well as considerations on interoperability and certification of eID Wallets.

Different options for high security deployments will be discussed and the ecosystem will be discussing future developments in secure elements and eUICC and how they will impact the future of Identity.
