How do our online identification techniques work?

AbSign uses two types of techniques for online identity checks: verifying a valid identity document and a video KYC check. These techniques are safest when used in combination. Of course, our solution for online identification has been developed according to the framework and guidelines of eIDAS, which means that we comply with the strict laws and regulations of the EU to the highest level.

Identity document verification

  • Reliably establish the authenticity of an ID document by taking a photo of the front and back;
  • All the different ID documents used within the European Union are analyzed on an algorithmic basis and compared with the photos that were taken;
  • Once a positive match is found, you are guaranteed that the ID document is genuine (and not a forgery);
  • Use the ID document verification in combination with a selfie check, real-time video recording, or even a check by a physical, trained person to link the ID document to someone’s identity.

Video KYC check

  • Since it is tough to fake real time moving images, you can reliably use video to verify someone’s identity online;
  • Our secure KYC solution uses a video recording to take a “3D-selfie” of the head;
  • Our advanced KYC solution adds an extra layer of security to the video recording by asking someone to say a particular word and make a specific gesture;
  • To make the video recording AML/CFT (anti-money laundering/countering the financing of terrorism) proof, you can choose to have it checked by a trained professional.

What are the benefits of online KYC checks?

Benefits of an online KYC check

  • Speed: onboarding new customers often takes much time, even several weeks or months, in some sectors. A legally valid KYC check can drastically speed up this process;
  • Precision: human errors slow down your business processes and, in many cases, lead to additional costs. Our KYC solution automatically checks for errors so that they can solve them faster;
  • Costs: In addition to speeding up the onboarding process and making fewer costly mistakes, you automatically comply with EU laws and regulations. This not only reduces your (in)direct costs but also improves the scalability of your organization;
  • Flexibility: legislation and regulations are constantly changing, so you often have to change your business processes. However, workflows with an online KYC check can be adjusted quickly so that you always work up-to-date;
  • Customer experience: an online KYC check is very user-friendly for the customer. It can verify itself from any device with a camera, and from anywhere in the world, within minutes.
