Identity Proofing

Identity proofing is the process of verifying and validating an individual’s claimed identity before granting them access to a system or service. It involves collecting and examining different forms of evidence to ensure that the person is who they claim to be. This process typically involves the verification of personal information such as name, address, date of birth, and social security number, as well as the examination of supporting documents like government-issued IDs, passports, or utility bills.

In addition to document verification, identity proofing may include other methods such as knowledge-based authentication (KBA), where individuals are asked questions based on personally identifiable information (PII) that only they should know. It can also involve biometric verification, such as fingerprint or facial recognition, to ensure that the physical attributes of the individual match the claimed identity. By thoroughly proofing an individual’s identity, organizations can mitigate the risk of fraud, identity theft, and unauthorized access, ensuring the security and trustworthiness of their systems and services.
