    In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, Veridos, a world-leading provider of integrated identity solutions, offers solutions that support seamless and contactless automated border control. In addition to state-of-the-art automated border control solutions such as kiosk and eGate systems, Veridos is taking part in EU-funded research projects to enable the next generation of on-the-fly identity verification, investigating new biometric modalities.

    Passport control is one of the most tiresome processes at airports, costing passengers time and testing their patience. For border control officers, checking identity documents involves a great deal of work. And Covid-19 adds additional stress: nobody wants to wait in long queues – especially with small distances between people – to finally present their passport to a border control officer.

    Botswana, the first country in Southern Africa to introduce ePassports in 2009, has once again placed an order with Veridos for electronic travel documents. These highly secure and ICAO-compliant ePassports have gone through multiple enhancements since they were first delivered over a decade ago. Virtually no attempts have been made to forge Botswana’s ePassports: a sign of excellence for Veridos in terms of security design.

    This week, the United Nations celebrates its 75th anniversary. UN Day on October 24th is a reminder to review the status of the Sustainable Development Goals, which include the effort to provide all people with a legal identity by 2030. Because access to health services and public aid is based on legal identity, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of this goal. For this reason, there is a strong need for identity management tools including a trusted civil registry as offered by Veridos, a leading global provider of identity solutions.

    Only ten years remain to achieve the transformation of the world. In the Decade of Action, sustainable solutions must be found for the world's greatest challenges: poverty, climate change and inequality. The clock is also ticking for UN sustainability goal 16.9, which states that every human being should have a legal identity by 2030. With only ten years to go, this is a challenging task, as the World Bank estimates that around one billion people currently do not have any form of legal identity. Among them are almost 237 million children under the age of five without birth certificates.

  • München,

    Munich, October 23, 2019 - Veridos, a global provider of integrated identity solutions, will present SwipeUp ID for the first time at SecurityPrinters in Copenhagen. The innovative solution uses the capacitive displays of smartphones to verify identity documents quickly and securely.

    A hidden metallic element serves as a basis: the newly-developed electronic technology is printed on the document and contains an identity-specific coding. Once the SwipeUp ID app has been opened, users can simply place the document on the smartphone's capacitive display and swipe up with one finger, which will activate the new feature. This induces a unique signal that is analyzed by the app and can then confirm or reject the validity of the document within only a few seconds. This makes SwipeUp ID a smart-phone based second level security feature unlike any other.
