It won’t be much of a surprise that most fraudsters don’t make such mistakes and put in logical, consistent data. Luckily, latest technology is not dependent on logical data errors only.

Latest AU10TIX BOS release enables stronger authentication of online customer-submitted US driver’s license authentication and processing. While conventional solutions rely primarily on reading driver license barcode in order to classify document variant and extract document data, AU10TIX BOS actually reads the information printed on the license and checks for manipulations beyond simple data errors or mismatches. This capability extends US driver’s license authentication from simple logical data checks to pixel-level image tampering, thus enabling true multi-factor forgery detection.

“A careless criminal may make illogical data errors but that’s not enough”, says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX: “What are the chances of putting in a date of birth like January 33, 2017?.... It won’t be much of a surprise that most fraudsters don’t make such mistakes and put in logical, consistent data. Luckily, latest technology is not dependent on logical data errors only. By actually reading license data, AU10TIX BOS can examine much smarter forgery and tampering attempts. Of course, we won’t disclose here what these checks are, but our clients are well aware how deep can today’s technology go in detecting sophisticated ID image manipulation attempts”.

“Time and again we encounter claims of automated document recognition and ‘invisible features’ authentication” that are downright misleading, says Ofer Friedman, VP Marketing of AU10TIX: “Yes, reading barcode data is quick and neat. But it doesn’t suffice as strong authentication, isn’t it?.. AU10TIX BOS is looking for the serious forgery attempt and not just the obvious. We strongly recommend online service providers to see things for themselves rather that rely on ‘secret sauce’ claims“.
