How to verify ID
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 and part of Gemalto's
secure identification and authentication solutions.
These procedures known as
KYC (Know Your Customer) are used by public and private sector institutions, document verification agencies, to combat identity or financial fraud as well as to comply with international regulations against money laundering and terrorist financing.
Document Verification (Infographic)
Gemalto ID Verification is a distributed software system that automatically verifies the electronic and physical security features of identity documents.
- 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.
When an ID is checked by our ID verification app, you know in seconds that it is a genuine government-issued identity document.
Integrate document verification in your process
More than just software, Gemalto ID 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 Border and Visa Management suite, Gemalto ID Verification can be deployed together with our biometric identification solution to determine whether the document bearer is the rightful owner.
That's the case for the
PARAFE smart border gates deployed in Paris Airports in September 2017.
Document checking for public and private sectors
Our document checking solution also addresses the needs of the private sector (telecoms, currency exchange, money transfer,
post offices, car rental companies and more).
ORANGE, the leading Mobile Network Operator, rolled out Gemalto ID Verification in some 700 stores across France in 2016 and 2017. In some stores, the
fraud rates were slashed by up to 100%. Discover more benefits by visiting our
