Inverid Representative Vendor in Gartner Market Guide for Identity Verification

Gartner has published their 2023 Market Guide for Identity Verification, and Inverid is named as a representative vendor for NFC identity verification. Gartner’s stance on NFC as a means of remote identity verification is clear: NFC-based identity verification will become unavoidable in the future and is currently a necessity if organisations need to trust the outcome of a check compared to dubious optical verification results as “counterfeits become harder to detect.”

As Gartner puts it, “It must be pointed out that any visual assessment (automated or human-driven) of document authenticity is ultimately probabilistic. (…) The chips are generally regarded as tamper-proof today, and vendors can verify that the data on the chip was cryptographically signed by the appropriate government issuing authority."

For questions on our apps
How does NFC work?

Modern passports (e-passports) and similar identity documents have a contactless NFC chip that can be read with your smartphone. It uses the same technology as, for example, contactless payments.

This chip is standardised as part of Doc 9303, Machine Readable Travel Documents, by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (part of the United Nations). The information on the chip is digitally signed by the issuing country and has protection against cloning. 

What countries support ePassports?

More than 170 different countries support electronic identity documents that can be read with ReadID technology. This number is growing fast. In Europe, countries have to use NFC in their identity cards as well. 

ReadID can be combined with optical solutions as a fallback option.
