The forthcoming ISO/IEC 24727 series of standards [ISO24727] defines architectures and application programming interfaces for electronic identity cards (eID). As there are already many initiatives around the globe (e.g. in the USA, Australia and Europe) which are about to use this standard in major eID- projects, it may be expected, that this standard will provide a major contribution for global eID interoperability and will become widely adopted in near future. On the other hand there is an ever increasing trend for mobility and the ubiquitous use of portable devices as well as first national eID-projects, which support mobile devices. Therefore it is natural to investigate how ISO/IEC 24727 may be used with mobile devices. The present contribution provides a brief overview of this standard and discusses different options for using this standard in a mobile environment.
