Agent from PayBurst is a digital credential application or second-generation digital mobile wallet. If you can scan, photo, or load a card or document image, then you can use it with Agent.
Agent is able to store almost everything in your current physical wallet as you would expect, plus documents currently beyond the scope of any wallet.
Some items you can store include:
* Loyalty cards * Credit/Debit Cards
* Identification Cards * Boarding Passes
* Admission Tickets * Licenses
* Coupons * Health Insurance Cards
* Motor Vehicle Records * Business Cards
* Appointment Cards * Book ISBN Reminders
Agent creates (2D) barcodes of personal information for convenient data storage and transfer. Barcodes can allow rapid application for a new merchant account without keyboard entries. Barcodes and QR codes are todays proven methods for transacting your business.
Security is key to Agent since it was designed to keep your personal information private. Your Agent data stays local to keep your data in your hands. Agent does not share data in the Cloud.
All data is stored in the phone's local storage media using the internal system memory and the SD Card if available. The local database that contains all user data, along with temporary files used by the application, is encrypted with the AES-256 encryption algorithm which is considered to provide strong protection.
PHONE STATE ACCESS - For security reasons, it is required that Agent has access to the phone state in order to create an encryption algorithm that mates the local Agent database with certain device characteristics. This matching of database and device helps to prevent the unauthorized use of stored information on a rogue device.
A key feature of Agent is the Active Credential operation. Each account entered into the Account Registry may be linked with a WiFi Access Point (AP) Station ID Name maintained by a merchant or other location. Depending on the selected program configuration settings, the linked account can automatically display a custom credential image stored with the account, or a barcode with the Account Number/ID.
For example, if your local music store had a WiFi AP broadcasting the Station ID Name -The Music Store- and you linked your music store rewards card to that Station ID Name, then by setting the program configuration to Auto-Display the next time you entered that store the rewards card would automatically be displayed on your device screen. Any account can be linked to the Station ID Name ranging from a rewards card or library card to a coupon and it would be displayed for you to use the next time you are at that location. The WiFi AP does not have to provide Internet access for this feature to function since all that is required is for the WiFi AP to broadcast a Station ID Name.
