Identity Credential

The Identity Credential APIs provide an interface to a secure store for user identity documents. These APIs communicate with the credstore system service which in turn use the Identity Credential HAL to communicate with Secure Hardware.

The Identity Credential HAL is accessed through IIdentityCredentialStore which provides an interface to a secure store for user identity documents. To the extent possible, specification of the message formats and semantics of communication with credential verification devices and issuing authorities (IAs) is out of scope for this HAL. It provides the interface with secure storage but a credential-specific Android application are be required to implement the presentation and verification protocols and processes appropriate for the specific credential type.
