Coesys Document Verification


Travel and identity document verification forms an integral part of sensitive processes like enrollment and registration, as well as in situations where certified identity is crucial - such as at border stations or during bank transactions. Reliable verification is vital to combating identity fraud and related criminal activities​​

Coesys Document Verification is a distributed software system that automatically verifies the electronic and physical security features of identity documents. Passports, visas, ID cards, driver’s licenses and many other identity documents can be checked against templates that are stored in a database, administrated centrally and automatically synchronized into all local repositories.

More than just software, Coesys Document Verification is a fully customizable editing platform that enables our customers to pilot each and every verification action on any identity document.

As part of our Coesys Border and Visa Management suite, Coesys Document Verification can be deployed together with our biometric identification solution to determine whether the document bearer is the rightful owner.

Coesys Document Verification also addresses the needs of the private sector (telecoms, currency exchange, money transfer, post offices, car rental companies and more). It can be delivered as a standalone application or a software development kit (SDK) that integrates into a proprietary or third-party system.

Customer Stories

  • Croatia

    In late 2010, Gemalto was chosen to upgrade Croatia’s border control system with Coesys Document Verification and a fully mobile version of Coesys Border Management system to run in biometric handheld devices. Our local partner, IN2 Croatia, turned to us to provide a secure quality assurance solution for the manufacturing of the Croatian passport. Coesys Document Verification has been deployed by the National Printing House (AKD) to analyze and validate all personalized passports prior to issuance.

  • High-profile European bank

    In 2012, Gemalto signed on as prime contractor with a high-profile European bank (name confidential) to deploy Coesys Document Verification at each branch location. Each station is connected to a central document verification repository that will hold more than 2,000 travel and ID documents. The central system is connected to each agent station to provide document repository updates as well as to perform management and operational reports. New customer demographic data, which are captured automatically from the document, are entered directly into the bank’s enterprise management system. The project is now up and running, with over 1,000 Coesys Document Verification workstations enabled.​​
