What is automatic identity verification?
Automatic identity verification is one of the three methods that Certum provides to Customers to confirm the identity of an Applicant for certificates containing personal information. It allows for quick verification of the authenticity of identity documents and confirmation that the Applicant is their owner. The entire process is performed using a computer or other device with access to a camera, from a maintenance-free interface. During scanning, the document data is automatically extracted and analyzed as well as compared to the Owner’s face.
The process is based on comparison of a facial image with a photo extracted from an identity document. Thanks to the biometric solution, it allows to guarantee that the User is present during the identity confirmation.
The entire process is live, in real time, and does not require sending documents, they are only scanned during the process to extract the data needed for verification and then deleted. The entire process takes about 60 seconds.
