The main purpose of the Paper Verify solution is to obtain photographs of identity documents provided by end-users. Paper Verify then proceeds to analyze the identity documents and extract the end-user’s identity details from it. These details are passed on to the service provider.
Paper Verify provides vital security features in order to ensure the authenticity of the identity document. Each identity document is checked towards an internal repository of known identity documents and their printed security features. These features and information, such as the expiry date on the identity document, are validated before the end-user is allowed to proceed. In addition, Paper Verify can be extended to collect self portraits from the end-user, which are then matched towards the photo on the identity document for further assurance of authenticity and proof of ownership.
