Let say you want to buy some beer.
You walk up to the cashier, wave your hand, card or phone over the receiver and presto your age has been verifies and you bought the beer at the same time.
4 But how does it know if it cant have information pulled?
Other devices have a pending request, when you wave your Smart ID over, it sends permission to send a request back. After the request is verified, your SmartID send a unique one time private key which allows the other device to decrypt your info.
5 Cant someone still find a way to pull your info?
Well information on your ID has ita own private pin, voice recognition/command and so on.
Lets put it this way
Information like age, gender, height religion is not very sensitive usually
Sending a payment however would require your pin or even a finger print to decrypt the transaction.
