Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Certification Program for Remote Identity Verification

Remote (mobile) identity verification of government-issued identity documents has become a popular way to validate user’s identity before they are allowed to create an account and proceed with FIDO Authentication. Similarly, when a user attempts to create an account, recover account access, or resent a password, their identity should be validated again. 

Mobile document verification solutions check the format of the document, the document image and selfie to score the validity and consistency of the information, but the lack of an industry-defined program to validate performance claims has led to concerns over variances in the accuracy and reliability of these solutions. 

To fill this gap, the FIDO Alliance launched the Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Certification Program for remote identity verification–the first such program for the industry at large. The program utilizes FIDO Accredited Laboratories to test and evaluate that mobile document verification solutions meet globally recognized performance criteria and are fit for commercial use.  

The Document Authenticity (DocAuth) Program introduces a new set of performance criteria requirements to the FIDO Certification Program. The goal of the certification program is to provide a framework for the certification of mobile document verification solutions that can in turn maintain and improve FIDO’s value proposition for strong authentication.
