Stop Issuing Secure Credentials to Imposters

Much has been said about the difficulties in screening persons for possible imposter fraud or security concerns based upon use of current identity documents like birth certificates, driver’s licenses or passports. The most often reasons given are the lack of standardization of security features and the layout for these documents. This criticism is focused on the inability of even a trained person to recognize valid documents and the specific parameters for each of these documents.


In this on demand video, the focus is on the value of machine screening of the identity documents in circulation and the requirement for a standardized metric for adjudication of the identity assurance process. The distinction is between human screening and the power of machine processing. The diversity of the identity documents and the issuer’s attempts to exert their own unique identity for their documents is actually a benefit to machine screening. The rich variety of specific layout and production characteristics provide many examination points for evaluation. The processing power, storage capacity, and imaging options, only recently available at a reasonable price point, make real-time examination of all of the unique properties and a subsequent risk analysis of the results a practical approach.
