Denver International Airport, Daon Announce join forces for biometric solutions

Tuesday 9 June 2020 11:29 CET | News

Identity management and biometric tech company Daon and Denver International Airport (DEN) have partnered to create contactless, biometric solutions throughout the airport environment. 

The partnership aims to restore traveller confidence as a result of COVID-19 by providing safety for travellers and facilitated airport operations. As such, by using Daon’s proven IdentityX platform for digital onboarding and authentication, DEN plans a multi-faceted pilot program to develop and test solutions for travellers and employees in a live airport environment. DEN’s strategic vision is to explore how foundational identity-driven technologies can enable a touchless experience, maximise physical distancing, and assist risk-based health mitigation as travellers move through the airport. 

In addition, Daon will provide the foundational tech platform, while DEN will provide the environment to pilot the collaborative solutions. Those solutions may explore:

  • Glide: A biometric solution to manage enrolled identities within the airport’s ecosystem of kiosks, eGates, and other locations, allowing a variety of potential applications. 
  • Risk-based health mitigation: A solution through which an individual, upon receiving digital identity and wellness credentials, can assert their health status by presenting a badge, visible on their personal mobile device, to a touchless reader or by similar means.
  • Touchless retail: A solution through which travellers could potentially use their pre-enrolled identities and mobile devices to quickly order, pay, and execute contactless/touchless in‐person transactions throughout DEN’s many stores and restaurants.
