NFC Chip-Based Identity Verification

Obtain bulletproof customer verification using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

NFC Identity Verification Solution

The most sophisticated and secure way currently on the market to verify identity using the latest government-issued e-passports and chip-based ID cards. The technology used in card payments or public transport is now available for effortless identity verification using smartphones.

  • All near-field communication (NFC) equipped Android and IOS (13 and higher) devices supported for data extraction
  • Data decoding via server using encrypted transfer channel
  • In-depth chip authentication to prevent forgeries
  • ID documents and security certificates are cross verified with issuing countries’ authorities to ensure validity.
  • User-friendly guidance during the NFC verification process
  • Identity verified in seconds with the utmost data accuracy
  • Over 90 countries are currently supported.

Fraud Prevention & Transparent Onboarding with NFC

As technologies advance faster than people can blink, fraudsters become increasingly sophisticated. It is getting increasingly harder to detect a forged document just by looking at it. That is why most e-passports (also known as “biometric passports”) or the latest ID cards are equipped with a microprocessor chip that contains biometric data of the individual and micro antenna for communication with the chip.

  • The critical information of the ID document is stored in the chip.
  • Public key infrastructure (PKI) is used to authenticate the data encrypted in the chip, which makes it spoof-proof for even the most advanced fraudsters.
  • NFC technology was approved as ISO/IEC standard back in 2003. So, this is not a novel idea but rather a tested and proven technology mostly used in touchless payments and gateway security systems.
  • NFC acts as a bridge between the biometric information stored in a chip and the identity verification engine, enabling additional validation using facial recognition technology.

Simple Steps to Complete the NFC Verification Process

Customizable NFC Verification Flow

While this identity verification method requires a smartphone equipped with NFC reading ability, that does not mean the process is not flexible. “Powered by iDenfy” means you have the options to choose as to how the NFC verification flow will look like to your end-user.

Possible NFC verification flows:

  1. ID document photo + facial recognition + NFC
  2. ID document photo + 3D liveness detection + NFC
  3. ID document photo + 3D liveness detection/Facial recognition + NFC + additional documents (utility bill or similar)
  4. NFC + ID data provided via API (coming soon)
