Implement your identity solution simply and faster with QR Code Integration or SMS-based campaigns.

IPA - Illustation Overview

IPA - Overview 

IPA (Identity Proofing Application) is an application that allows you to verify that the identity claimed by the user corresponds to the identity supported by the provided documents.

Why IPA? 

IPA - Implementation Comparison

IPA - Identity Proofing App

  • Able to deploy quicker
  • Integrated with IDEMIA Identity Proofing platform to immediately begin verification process
  • Customizable to include branding

Full Integration

  • More flexibility
  • Documentation and sample code provided
  • Ability to launch your own app

How it works 

First and foremost, IPA works as a web application and does not require any installation processes for end user - this innovative solution allows user to use it on the go, without any additional support from engineers or programmers. All you have to do is to scan QR code or open a link from SMS and start your proofing experience.

IPA allows for quick and straightforward data and identity verification, comparing to its ancestor - Identity Proofing and Verification demo, requiring integration of ~70 endpoints and 2 SDKs. Thanks to integration withing Identity Proofing platform you can even customize user experience by specific colors and graphics. IPA supports multiple languages translations, so it can be easily accessible not only in English-speaking countries, but also for Spanish, Portugese, Polish and French users.

During proofing experience IPA analyses given ID (personal ID, driving license, passport) and liveness face identification (in either active or passive form). Both documents and face pictures are throrughly verified to omit potential frauds - system checks their authencity and credibility. Those data are verified and stored in Partner Managers account:

  • Transactions in Identity Proofing (for QR code integration)

  • SMS campaign details (for SMS campaign integration)

IPA can be integrated for end users in two forms: QR code and SMS campaign integration.

QR Code or SMS Campaign Integration? 

QR Code Integration 

In order to use QR Code Integration, user has to generate an integration endpoint, which will be used to communicate with servers. QR Code Integration is the fastest way to run and collect proofing information from receivers' group. Click here to find more details.

QR Code Integration - Request QR Code

Request QR code/link

A customer calls IDEMIA to request QR code/link. They are then immediately sent a one-time QR code/link and a Transaction ID.

QR Code Integration - Display QR Code on customer's end

Customer displays QR code

The end user scans QR code with smartphone and is redirected to Identity Proofing App (IPA) with customer's customization.

QR Code Integration - Scan ID

Scan ID

User uses IPA to scan their identification document and to capture a selfie using their mobile browser. Verification begins automatically.

QR Code Integration - Receive results

Receive results

A customer calls IDEMIUA to request QR code/link. They are then immediately sent a one-time QR code/link and a Transaction ID.

SMS Campaign Integration 

SMS campaigns are more complex comparing to QR code integration, however it does not mean that they are more difficult to maintain. Moreover - SMS campaigns enable user not only to create proofing experience and collect data, but also verify them in the form of charts and intuitive tables. Click here to read more.

SMS Campaign - Display QR Code on customer's end

Create campaign

Customer defines and selects proofing criteria. They upload contact information and create a desired SMS message and landing page.

QR Code - Configure your App 

In order to use IPA, you must generate an integration endpoint, which will be used to communicate with our servers. Integration endpoint is a secret and should not be shared with anyone. Detailed instruction how to create and use QR code endpoint is described in How to use it page.

QR code integration - Configure your App

Simple configuration page enables for quick creation of endpoint and immediate collection of users' proofing experiences.

All integrator has to do is to complete 4 steps:

  1. Selection of proofing environment

  2. Selection of country

  3. Choosing document type for proofing

  4. Choosing facial recognition type

Generate endpoint 

“Generate endpoint” button redirects to endpoint page. From this point user can either preview endpoint in a form of QR code or configure new proofing experience. To test endpoint’s correctness, user can preview QR code once clicking on “Generate test QR code”, as on screens below.

IPA - SMS Campaign Integration 

Campaign configuration 

SMS campaigns are more complex comparing to QR code integration, however it does not mean that they are more difficult to maintain. Moreover - SMS campaigns enable user not only to create proofing experience and collect data, but also verify them in the form of charts and intuitive tables.

Welcome page

To access IPA with SMS campaign user needs to click on ‘SMS Campaigns’ button (left screen below). IPA opens in a new tab (right screen below). IPA Homepage informs about campaign process described in four quick steps. In the left navigation column user can start creation of new campaign , edit scheduled or drafted ones as well as see launched and expired campaigns. Clicking on launched or expired campaigns redirect to campaign overview, which will be described soon in this documentation.

SMS Campaign Integration - Welcome

Creation of SMS campaign 

Clicking on “Start New Campaign” button redirects to campaign creator, that is divided into 5 steps necessary for complete campaign experience. Once providing required information in each step - action should be confirmed by clicking ‘Previous’ or ‘Next’ buttons. Otherwise your changes won’t be saved and progress will be lost. Steps that are already completed are marked with green icon in left navigation.

SMS Campaign Integration - Campaign steps

Step 1: Campaign name 

At first, user has to define name for the campaign. Naming must be unique, coherent and meaningful, so campaign can be easily found among others on the list. Moreover, campaign name is limited to 40 signs.

SMS Campaign Integration - Campaign Name

Step 2: Proofing Criteria 

Secondly user defines proofing criteria, such as:

  • proofing tenant

  • country of documents' origin

  • type of document - what documents user sees depends on the chosen country

  • type of facial recogition - as for simplified QR code integration, user can choose either to perform active or passive liveness, or to resign from it and scan document only.

SMS Campaign Integration - Campaign Proofing Criteria

Step 3: Prepare Communication 

In 3rd step user configures SMS content as well as landing page that is about to display on mobile device after clicking on link from SMS.

SMS content needs to be meaningful and coherent, as it is limited to max. 100 signs. Remaining 60 signs are reserved for shortened url that will be attached to given message and then send to desired recipients.

In Landing Page section user can define a page that will display on recipient’s device after clicking on the link and redirection to the browser. User can determine styling of elements, such as text, graphics and links in WYSIWYG creator. Additionally, user can force end users to accept Terms & Conditions, add T&C .pdf file, decide about constent copy, file name and button. Result of those stylings display on the preview next to configuration panel, as on the screen below.

SMS Campaign Integration - Prepare Communication for the campaign

Step 4: Upload Contacts 

In this step user defines a list of recipients that will take part in this campaign by completing proofing experience. List can be either uploaded from .csv/.xlsx file or recipients' numbers might be added manually. Contacts imported from files are validated and only correct ones (with country prefix, without letters, etc.) are displaying as proper ones. Rejected contacts will appear on the top of the list marked in red. User can use filters to either show all contacts on the list or just invalid ones. Invalid contacts need to be removed from the list to proceed.

SMS Campaign Integration - Phone number manual upload

In manual upload user can change country prefix depending on recipients' contact origin.

Important note: even if recipient has foreign contact number, the document type for proofing must be aligned with the country and document chosen while defining Proofing Criteria in step 2 - e.g. for campaign defined for Poland & polish ID user has to scan polish ID even if his contact number if from another country (France, Spain, etc.).

SMS Campaign Integration - PContact Prefixes

Step 5: Schedule 

User can decide whether to send campaign immediately and start collecting data process or to schedule send for any point in the future.

Important note: Campaign that is sent immediately loses the chance of further edition. The only element that can be edited is a Landing Page in ‘Prepare Communication’ (Step 3).

Scheduled campaign are editable until chosen schedule date.
