Advanced ID document authentication

Perform 50+ checks in the areas below that exceed the capabilities of the human eye in seconds, delivering unparalleled security and a superior customer experience.

Microprint is a type of security measure used in ID cards and documents that involves the printing of very small text. It is usually visible only when viewed under magnification.

B900 ink is a special type of ink used to print security features on ID cards and documents, such as watermarks, microtext, and other features. This type of ink is designed to be difficult to copy or reproduce.

To validate the authenticity of an ID card or document, it must be printed on certain types of paper that are difficult for counterfeiters to replicate. The validation process involves examining the paper for specific characteristics that are unique to the original document.

Thread detects are pieces of thread embedded into an ID card or document that can be detected using specialized equipment such as a magnifying glass or ultraviolet light source. These threads provide additional evidence for authentication purposes.

Data validity checks involve verifying that all data fields on an ID card or document contain valid information that matches up with records from other sources (e.g., government databases). Any discrepancies indicate potential fraud and require further investigation before acceptance can take place.

Pattern matching involves comparing elements from two different sources (e.g., images) in order to identify similarities between them (e.g., facial recognition). This technique can be used to verify whether two images represent the same person by comparing their features side-by-side in order to determine any similarities between them (e.g., shape, size).

OVI stands for Optical Variable Ink while OVD stands for Optical Variable Device; both techniques use specialized materials which change color based on external factors such as angle or light intensity in order detect counterfeiting attempts more easily than traditional methods alone would allow for.

Color and geometry validation checks involve examining certain visual aspects within an image/document such as color palettes/schemes, shapes/patterns, line thicknesses etc., in order make sure they match up with known standards/specifications associated with genuine IDs/documents.

Crosschecking values across multiple fields and documents is a key component of field crosschecks; this includes comparing Machine Readable Zones (MRZs) in passports to Visual Inspection Zones (VIZs), OCR data on driver's licenses to barcodes, and magnetic strips on credit cards with their respective chip information. This method helps ensure accuracy in forms of identification while providing extra evidence for spotting any potential fraudulent activity.
