New BioID® PhotoVerify Web Service enables automated online identity proofing

(PresseBox) ( Nuremberg, Germany, )
BioID, a leader in multimodal “Biometrics as a Service”, has announced the release of a PhotoVerify API as part of the BioID Web Service (BWS). With this service, online providers can verify the legal identities of their customers and users without the need for a face-to-face proofing either in person or via live video session. As such, it is an ideal solution for applications where legal identity can be proofed in real-time, to on-board a new customer for online banking or insurance, as well as online shopping. Additionally, a new student can be enrolled for online learning or exams and identity documents can be renewed online.

Accurate, convenient, privacy-assured ID checks now possible anytime, anywhere

The new API compares two live facial images against an image from a photo ID such as a passport or driver’s license, making sure that (1) the live images are truly from a live person, not a photo or video, and (2) the live person matches the ID photo. Since no biometric templates or photos are stored and all data is deleted after the operation, it fulfills all requirements for an anonymous identity proofing service.

Until recently, applications requiring verification of a person’s legal identity have required appearing in person to present a photo ID. In some cases, this process is now carried out remotely via live video session, but this is still a costly and inconvenient process and often done by external service providers, adding further expense and complexity. Manual ID proofing is also subject to human error, because peoples’ appearances change from day to day and, for video-based processes, also due to poor-quality video streaming.

Advanced face recognition with built-in liveness detection now makes it possible to replace this manual process with faster, more convenient automated ID verification that is more economical and can be integrated into existing services with only a few lines of code.

The new API is available immediately through the BioID Web Service, please contact us for further information.
