How does it work?

For users, it consists of 3 steps:

  1. User ID verification: The user starts the verification process by capturing a photo of their ID document (ID, Passport, or Driving License) through an app or website.

  2. Liveness check: FACEKI's solution performs a liveness check to ensure that the user is physically present and not a spoofed image. This involves asking the user to perform a specific action, such as blinking or nodding their head.

  3. Verification result: Once all the checks are completed, FACEKI's solution returns a verification result indicating the verification result (Accepted or Declined).

The security checks performed:

While the user performing the steps above, FACEKI behind the scenes is performing several AI-powered security checks in real-time, before a result gets given. Below is a list of the checks performed:

  1. Anti-spoofing Check: FACEKI's solution uses advanced anti-spoofing technology to detect and prevent fraud attempts, such as the use of fake photos or videos.

  2. Photo Face Match Check: FACEKI's solution compares the user's submitted photo or ID document with a live photo or video of the user to confirm that they are the same person.

  3. Image Quality Check: Make sure that all texts on the ID are readable and with a high confidence score, and that the ID portrait image is clear, not blurry.

  4. Document Type Check: To identify the type of document presented whether it’s an ID card, Passport, Driving License, or other type. Also identifying the document's origin and issuing country.

  5. Security Features Check: Make sure that the document includes all security features by the issuer, and that it’s authentic, not photoshopped or manipulated in any shape or form.

  6. Data Matching Check: Cross-check the data printed in the document on the front side and the back that it matches. Also, match the printed data (using OCR) with the data in the document Bar Code and MRZ code that they are matching, otherwise, it will be flagged.

  7. Validity Check: Make sure that the document presented is valid and not expired, as well as calculate the days remaining till it expires.

  8. Additional Checks: Depending on the requirements and settings selected, businesses may opt to activate extra checks to be performed, additional checks may be performed, such as age verification, gender verification, and nationality verification.

  9. Risk Scoring: Once all the checks are completed, FACEKI's solution calculates the risk based on all checks performed and returns a verification result indicating whether the user verification is Accepted or Declined.

Overall, FACEKI's solution provides businesses with a fast, secure, and efficient way to authenticate users while also preventing fraud and creating a safer digital environment.
