New Features and Improvements 

  • Detect Linecode in US DL
  • Extend Document coverage
  • Detect corner cut on Polish document
  • Improve Online Face liveness detection

Note :

To better reflect the continuous improvements brought to online face liveness detection, and to enforce better fraud detection, the Liveness SecurityLevel scale has been updated and simplified.

With ID&V 4.0.4, the fraud detection level can be setup through the Liveness SecurityLevel to 3 possible values:

  • LOW : for integrators who prefer to focus on the convenience
  • MEDIUM : recommended value – ideal balance
  • HIGH : for integrators who prefer to focus on the security

Without modification of the integration, each integrator will benefit of a better fraud detection level but may experience a slight pass rate decrease.

For the integrators, using the HIGH and above Liveness SecurityLevel, who would consider the pass rate decrease as an inconvenient, they need only to change the security level to MEDIUM or even LOW while opening the liveness session.

Fixed issues 

  • Bug Fix ACTIVE LIVENESS (LIVENESS_HIGH) on Chrome 94

  • Identity Document web capture – through web browser – is not supported on iOS

03/27/2020 

New features and Improvements 

  • Mitigation of Document Type and Issuing Country improperly specified by the user in the document verification request
    • If the document status is VERIFIED, then the document type and issuing country detected by the service overwrites the information provided by the user in the API response
  • Two new indicators have been introduced to identify documents that have been rejected because they are banned from the list of authorized documents. AUTHORIZED_ISSUING_COUNTRY and AUTHORIZED_DOCUMENT_TYPE
  • Added the capability to perform of AML, PEP and Interpol Red Notice checks for the verified identities in certain countries (contact your sales representative)

Note: 

These changes may affect client application implementations under certain circumstances.

  • The size of the ”id” field (Identity Identifier) of the REST API that can be found in the request path, responses body, as well as in the proof file is larger than what it was in previous service versions. It is highly recommended that client applications do not consider it as fixed size, like any other “string” type field
  • The path of the images inside the proof file has been fixed to remove the proof name from the path. If the client application extracts images from the proof for subsequent processing, that may cause the application to fail opening the file.
  • Before : image path = <PROOF_NAME>/images/<DOCUMENT_NAME>
  • Now : image path = images/<DOCUMENT_NAME>

10/04/2019 

  • Support Back of ID only as document image.
  • Major Document Authentication improvements for US and Polish Identity Documents.
  • US System of Record checks improvements.
  • Integration of WebBioserver Portrait capture with Liveness detection through WebRTC (browser-based video stream).
  • Support of webhooks with customer defined URLs to notify end of evidence processing instead of polling for status.
  • User Mobile Phone number verification using a One Time Password sent with a text message.
  • Improvements of image upload time and proof generation duration.
  • Reducing latency impacts when service is under high throughput.

See your IDEMIA Dashboard for updated API feedback reference and postman examples project.

07/12/2019 

  • US driver's license and state ID cards verification against the Issuing Source (DMV): As an option to the tenant configuration, verification of those document details against the issuing DMV is available for 31 states. Check the documentation section of the dashboard for more details.

  • Optional Date of Birth: When submitting attributes to verify a claimed identity against an identity document or an issuing source, the date of birth is now optional.

  • Service Healthcheck endpoint: a GET /healthcheck service is now available to get an instant status of the service’s health, and the availability of the different verification capabilities.

Security Fixes 

  • Undefined Multiparts: It is not possible anymore to send multiparts in the HTTP request that are not defined in the API. Now, those requests generate an HTTP 400 error.

  • USER_AGENT API keys restrictions: Creating or deleting an identity, or getting the proof was possible on the staging/integration environment with a USER_AGENT API key. As this is not possible in production, the staging environment has been updated to reflect the behavior of the production environment and receive an HTTP 403 error code.

Other Fixes 

It is no longer possible to submit dates that do not exist or are not relevant to the use case (like future date for a date of birth). Requests containing such dates now receive an HTTP 400 error.
