Wednesday 23 October 2019 10:57 CET | News

Signicat, a digital identity company, has announced new capabilities which expands the reach and reliability of its digital identity verification offering.

Through a new technical interface and new 3rd party integrations, Signicat can now offer identity verification in 208 countries through identity document scanning, web-based video interviews, and NFC scanning of passports. 

With this release, Signicat provides a complete solution for digital customer onboarding and also introduces three new integrations: 

  • Agent-based verification allows Signicat customers to perform web-based video interviews for identity verification transactions via an integration with Electronic Identity’s VideoID offering. This type of video interview review complies with eIDAS level “High” and thereby satisfies the more demanding regulations.
  • Automated identity document verification allows Signicat customers to automatically process more than 6000 different identity documents types, such as passports, drivers licenses, national ID cards and more, via an integration with Onfido’s AI-powered document verification system. This removes the burden of manual inspection from Signicat's customers.
  • NFC reading of passports allows Signicat customers to build NFC reading capabilities into their native mobile apps via an integration with ReadID’s mobile ID verification system. When used with supported eMRTD (electronic Machine Readable Travel Documents) this results in signed identity attributes and a high resolution image from the document that effectively removes the risk of fraudulent documents.
