How it works

Start with an ID and a selfie

With our Capture SDK you can easily add document and face capture functionality to your application. The simple-to-use software makes it easy for users to upload information and begin the verification process.

Next stop, authenticate the doc

Once the user’s ID documents and selfie are captured, the two are compared against each other to confirm a match.

A series of checks validate the authenticity of the ID document, looking for possible digital tampering, correct templates, and more.

Proof Authenticate can validate ID documents from over 195 countries.

Supported documents

  • ID Cards
  • Passport
  • Residence Permit
  • Voter Identification Document
  • Driver’s License
  • Visa
  • Immigration Papers

Add third-party checks

Information is checked against third-party databases like national biometric databases, population registries, AML/CFT/PEP watchlists, or records held by service providers.

Confirm the user is real

IDEMIA Biometric SDK performs tests to determine if the user attempting to access your application is a real, live person.

There are two modes of tests.

Active mode asks users to perform a series of random head movements. Passive mode uses fingerprints to authenticate the user.

Verification complete

Once the process is complete, IDEMIA Identity Proofing creates a profile for the customer that includes a combination of verified evidence scores.

The IDEMIA Level of Assurance score gives you the data needed to determine if a user is who they say they are, or if there is a possibility of fraud.
