Identity Document Verification Features

Data match, format & layout checks

Checks whether information visually present on an ID matches the information present in either a barcode or MRZ. This includes whether information visually present on an ID appears in the expected data format (e.g. date formats, document number formats, gender formats, nationality format, issuing authority formats) and layout check to determine whether all visual elements of an ID appear in expected locations and sizing.

Passive liveness detection

Analyzes the movements to determine if the ID is physically present in front of the camera by way of screen detection, photocopy detection, and hand presence. Identify if a user is attempting to spoof an ID by displaying it on a screen (e.g. computer, tablet, mobile), or attempting to present a photocopied document as authentic. Our image quality indicator assesses the quality of the image used in the analysis of the document for fraud indicators.

Security feature analysis

Analyzes the static security features (e.g. document titles, logos, flags, emblems, coats of arms, signatures) of identity documents to determine if they appear as expected – including scenarios where security features are entirely missing or fake security features have been added.

Photo forgery & font analysis

Identifies whether the photo on the ID has been tampered with, such as a fraudster overlaying a secondary photo on top, and checks the relative sizing, shape, and location of letters on the identity document to check whether they appear as expected.

Intuitive UX with built-in extraction

Our award-winning, intuitive interface with real-time feedback guides the user toward a successful document verification while extracting the data simultaneously.

Data logic checks

Compares various dates to check for logical sequencing and validates check digits in the MRZ. Document sample check identifies common strings used in sample documents, such as “specimen” or “sample” for the Last Name field, while expiry check determines whether the ID is expired.
