World-First Security Certification Package

Mobile identity verification technology provider Inverid has been certified through a unique combination of security certificates for its NFC- based identity verification technology ReadID.

As both customers and users of ReadID trust Inverid with very security and privacy sensitive information, Inverid has the responsibility to not only be secure, but also to prove that they are secure. Inverid has therefore extended its baseline ISO27001 security with three additional certifications: ISO/IEC 27701 for Privacy Management, eIDAS module for Qualified Trust Service Providers (digital signatures), and eIDAS electronic identification (eID) at assurance level High.

This article was originally published in 2021. To see Inverid's latest certification package and up to date information, please view our certifications page.

Especially the latter two module certifications are unique: Inverid is the first and the only technology provider in the identity document verification industry with a certified automated solution for qualified digital signatures and eID High. All certifications have been assessed by the well-known and accredited German/Austrian auditor TÜV.

“ReadID disrupts the remote identification industry, which still largely relies on OCR and video identification technologies”

Through their new eIDAS regulation compliancy, Inverid can now offer customers an increased confidence in their ReadID services. It also eliminates a substantial part of the customers’ audit responsibility, saving cost and valuable time, while avoiding the risk of unexpected findings during the audit.

Both eIDAS certifications are not only relevant for trust service or electronic identity providers. Any organisation that is required to prove the identity of their end users, can now use ReadID in a proven secure and trustworthy manner. Inverid’s eIDAS electronic identification module certification helps customers to comply with sector-specific identification and authentication requirements under legislations such as KYC, AML, and PSD2.

“In both banking and digital signatures, the cruciality of proof of security is increasingly more evident. Distinguishing between disrupting yet mature technologies, such as ReadID, and immature new technologies that can introduce important risks in vital processes is not that easy,” explains Inverid Compliance Officer Bob Hulsebosch, CISSP. “Our module certifications prove that customers can rely on our identity verification technology as an important component in their solutions.”

“ReadID disrupts the remote identification industry, which still largely relies on OCR and video identification technologies,” ReadID CEO Maarten Wegdam adds. “Our new certification proves an unequalled trustworthiness of both our technology and ourselves as a company at the highest level of identity verification: qualified digital signatures and eIDAS eID High. This is a game-changer for us and helps us scale out business further by reducing audit overhead.”
