Government of Nigeria

Steve Pannifer, Head of Delivery, Consult Hyperion


What is the most demanding environment into which you have delivered a digital identity service? This year, Consult Hyperion’s TAP (Token Administration Platform) pilot has delivered a voucher service into rural Nigeria where the end customers have no digital footprint and where there is often no network coverage of any kind. Through the use of the latest mobile and contactless technologies, together with “people-powered mesh networking,” we have delivered a cloud-based identity service that enables farmers to gain access to the subsidies to which they are entitled. Steve will provide an overview of this high-profile project and draw lessons for the wider identity industry.
