Veridos Demonstrates How to Secure Chipless Documents at SDW 2016

(PresseBox) (Berlin/London, )
Secure breeder documents and mobile-based IDs are the two key topics for Veridos at the SDW 2016. This congress, which will take place on May 10 to 12 in London, is one of the most important events in the ID sector worldwide.

At booth N° J13, Veridos will demonstrate a cost-efficient and effective method to increase the security of breeder documents, such as birth certificates, and visa stickers. A birth certificate is a good example of a public document which is used to apply for other personal credentials such as travel documents, national ID cards or bank cards. Once verified, this data becomes the trusted anchor for issuing new security documents. Hence, the issuance of a birth certificate must be trustworthy and fraud-proof, otherwise travel or other documents that are issued on the basis of falsified information can be used to establish fake identities.

The EU funding project FIDELITY has created an invaluable proposal on how to counter ID threats by increasing the security of and harmonizing breeder documents in the EU. In addition, the ICAO NTWG is working on a new Technical Report to increase the security of visa stickers by including signed barcodes, following an initiative by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

Veridos has incorporated these proposals into a practical solution not limited to the requirements of EU member states but fit for every country in the world. This approach is embedded in Veridos' existing identity solution portfolio, which includes enrollment and issuance systems, and is thus a very convenient and secure offering for governments. Veridos issues birth certificates equipped with a barcode that contains the printed biographic information in machine-readable form. By reading the barcode, the authenticity of the document can be checked. If it passes the test, a passport can be granted. In addition, visa stickers will also be enhanced with a barcode. Veridos provides a special smartphone app that is compatible with almost all Android and iOS-based smartphones and capable of verifying the signed barcode on the visa sticker.

Veridos has a multiple presence at the SDW 2016: Veridos CEO Hans Wolfgang Kunz will attend the panel discussion "Views from the top" at 10 a.m. on the first day of the event. Frank Schmalz, Director of Innovations & Business Development, will speak on the afternoon of day two as part of the "Lightning Talks" about "Killer Use Cases for Mobile-based ID as Document Replacement". Furthermore, Veridos is a Premier Sponsor of SDW, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
