We use NFC-first identity verification. We leverage what every employee has: a smartphone and a passport or identity card. Nearly all passports and most identity documents are chipped. They have a chip inside that contains all the necessary information in a way that is impossible to tamper with and can be checked within seconds. This includes a high resolution image of the person, free of watermark or security markings.
ReadID technology reads and verifies that chip in a few steps, 100% secure, 100% easy.
- Scan the machine readable zone in the passport or on the identity card to get the key to the chip;
- Read and verify the contents of the chip, holding the identity document near to the smartphone;
- Optionally, checking the ID can be combined with face verification: we verify the person holding the document now is the actual owner.
If necessary, we have optical fall-back solutions for non-chipped documents. Less secure, but sufficient for data extraction as a first step.
