How to create a digital identity?
It goes without saying the importance and advantage of digital identity. However, we need a specific tool to create a digital identity and digital identity system. And biometric device or biometric machine could help us do well in the preliminary biometric data acquisition and collection.
Creating a digital identity, it generally involves three steps include capture, verify and digitalize. The details of each step may vary according to the actual demand and the regulations they are subject to. Take Telpo biometric device S8 as an example, we can take a brief understanding of the basic process.
In virtue of face recognition camera, fingerprint scanner and iris scanner, the biometric device is available to capture the user's biometric information. When people place their fingerprint on the fingerprint scanner or look directly towards the face recognition camera or iris scanner, their biometric data (face, fingerprint, iris) will be automatically captured according to the demand.
Biometric technology is used to verify whether the citizen presenting the official document, which can also be used as an advanced digital way to remote verify someone identification. In order to expand the accuracy and expandability of identity verification, the biometric machine can also support various verification methods include 1D&2D, NFC, OCR and passport MRZ and multi-fingerprint scanners optional (IB Columbo/ Sherlock, Suprema BM-Slim2/3).
A digital identity may be created after matching the biometric data and the identity document. If require, immediately paper credential can be printed as the external Zink printer is available. As the biometric data is supported to store at the biometric device or upload to the digital identity system with stable communication, thus user can easily access to the relative server with their digital ID. They can gain access by simply presenting the requested biometric attribute, such as their fingerprint, face or iris.
With 22-years rooted at the biometric industry, Telpo have developed a series of biometric identity devices and biometric solutions include citizen registration, voter verification, election, border control, ID document issuance, eKYC, etc. If you want to know more details, welcome to contact us.
