On Premise | Remote | NFC Based Remote

Process ePassports and eIDs with the Highest Level of Identity Assurance


Acuant Ozone® is a secure, accurate and user-friendly solution to validate ePassports, eIDs, and Machine-Readable Travel Documents (MRTDs). Ozone is easy to deploy in an on premise or mobile environment, is built to scale, and is designed to adeptly manage a high volume of transactions.  


Excelling in locations like border crossings where passports are common, Ozone also delivers a superior level of performance and trust to customer onboarding and Know Your Customer (KYC) processes in industries such as banking and financial services.  

How It Works

Acuant Ozone is a comprehensive solution to validate ePassports and eIDs with efficiency and accuracy. The solution intelligently processes ePassports and eIDs with a contactless chip by extracting the identity holder’s information from the chip, verifying it with the issuer, validating the document’s authenticity, and decoding security and privacy mechanisms. Ozone is also well-suited for the evolving world of identity and border control solutions with the ability to generate a Digital Travel Credential (DTC) from the physical document.


With options for in-person, document-present environments and a mobile version that is embeddable in iOS or Android applications, Ozone is highly flexible to meet a range of needs. It’s also available with Acuant’s solution for identity verification – AssureID™ – to add facial recognition and liveness detection for an additional layer of trust.


  • Capture and extract text and image data from ePassports and eIDs with full accuracy using contactless chips and NFC-enabled devices.
  • Verify data with the document issuer to ensure authenticity and confirm the document was issued by a trusted source and has not been revoked.
  • Securely unlock the chip in eIDs using advanced cryptography and rely on anti-cloning measures to validate that the contactless chip and physical document belong to each other.
  • Combine facial recognition and liveness detection to compare a selfie against the image embedded in the chip for multi-factor authentication in remote transactions.
  • Comply with standards and specifications established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), followed by countries issuing ePassports.
  • Process a wide range of documents with a global document library that is continuously updated.
