How we verify any National ID Card in the world in seconds using iDocufy
December 17, 2019
Identity verification is becoming more important and enhanced around the world. Many customers are now required to verify photo ID and in many countries this is commonly a national ID Card (for example the NADRA national identity card of Pakistan). Our solution allows you to verify any ID card in the world in seconds.
Here we tell you how we enable it using iDocufy.
Any national ID card in the world
iDocufy (our real time multi-factor identity verification solution) can read the electronic and visual data from any national identity card, anywhere in the world. Many countries worldwide now have compulsory ID cards, you can find out which here. In some countries their introduction is relatively new, such as Italian ID cards, Nepal, Vanuatu, to new just a few. And some national ID cards can be easier to forge than others.
iDocufy can authenticate any national ID card, from any country, whether new or existing. In fact, iDocufy can analyse and authenticate the data from over 5,000 different types of national document. That means companies can verify passports, drivers licences, or any type of ID document issued by a government.
iDocufy works as a quick and simple step added into the user journey, when a customer is opening an account, or doing an online application etc. They are asked to provide a form of ID, and the solution takes care of the rest:
- Capture – The customer is prompted to take a photo of the front and back of their national ID card
- Process – Images and data are processed instantly and securely in the cloud
- Authenticate – 50+ forensic tests are performed on the credentials in real time
- Verify – Optional facial recognition match can be performed using BioMatch
In the first few milliseconds the AI-powered platform analyses the front and back photo to establish the dimensions and layout of the ID. It instantly recognises what type of ID document it is, which country it comes from, where the photo and all key information will be, and then biometrically analyses the photo and captures all text information to perform matches against.
Document verification checks
iDocufy runs Image Tampering Checks, Layout Validation, Visible Security Features (that all are present and in correct location) Overlay Pattern (to check this is exactly correct), MRZ Crosscheck (cross references document data, biographic data and classification data against the information contained in one or more visible or machine-readable fields), and Photo Printing checks (verifies that a detailed photo printing technique was used). You can find out more here.
It knows if anything is wrong in a split-second
The software, powered by human assisted machine learning, analyses for any inconsistencies or indications of falsification, and can flag document errors or tampering.
Advanced OCR technology extracts the printed PII from the document to cross-reference against the customer’s submitted information and the results of the customer’s digital verification.
iDocufy (and BioMatch when used together) then returns an easy-to-understand set of results, alerts and scores, alongside an overall pass or fail result. So verification takes mere seconds.
It works on any smartphone, on any operating system. An automated platform that eliminates the time, costs, and security risks of manual checks, while producing greater accuracy.
