Document Authenticity Certification Program
FIDO Alliance’s Doc Auth Certification Program is independent of its other certification programs. There are no FIDO certification prerequisites to apply for DocAuth certification for a mobile document verification solution.
This figure provides an overview of the certification process of a mobile document verification solution:
Detailed Certification Process:
To certify a mobile document verification solution, a vendor will follow these steps:
Complete and submit application: The vendor completes a [NDA] and notify the [Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Secretariat at email@example.com] of intent to complete testing and certify.
Pre-Testing: FIDO Accredited Laboratories are responsible for testing against the performance criteria requirements and testing procedures. In this step, the vendor submits the mobile document verification solution to a FIDO Accredited Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Laboratory along with its required documentation and enters into an agreement for testing. A time estimate is provided by the accredited laboratory; vendor and laboratory agree on the cost involved for testing. A list of accredited labs can be found at https://fidoalliance.org/accredited-labs/.
Testing and Reporting: The accredited laboratory performs testing and returns a laboratory report to the vendor and to FIDO’s Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Secretariat. The DocAuth Secretariat reviews the laboratory report and makes a decision to approve, reject, or ask for clarification.
Certification Request: After the laboratory report has been approved, the vendor completes a certification request.
Certification Issuance: FIDO’s Certification Secretariat reviews and, if complete, approves the certification request and issues an invoice for the Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Certification Fee.
