How to prove the genuine presence of the holder remotely?

Remote identity verification should follow two steps: guaranteeing the validity of the identity document and verifying the genuine presence of the document holder. To guarantee document validity nothing beats NFC-based identity verification.

NFC reading allows you to simply verify a passport - to ensure it's not been manipulated or copied. But what about that second step? How to prove the genuine presence of the holder remotely?

For this second step, biometrics are often used. We will explain the different forms of biometrics, their strengths and their weaknesses. We zoom into face verification and explain why the combination of getting the data from the chip and face verification works best, for a highly usable and secure approach to identity verification.

Our guest is Andrew Bud, CEO from iProov, the leading face biometric verification service provider. iProov will outline the evolving threat landscape and how fraudsters are developing new digital threats to spoof identities.
