A personal identification method that is called as the electronic ID is proposed by using a cell-phone that displays a face image, character data and a two dimensional including personal identification data, and the implementation of the prototype is described. Although plastic cards, magnetic stripe cards and smart cards are used as ID (identification) cards, the risks to lose these cards are large. If a cell-phone is used for personal identification, it is possible to dynamically display all of the identification data on the color display of the cell phone. A prototype personal identification system using a cell-phone and a Web server to identify each user is implemented to verify the feasibility of the electronic ID.
