- Image capturing and processing:
- IDscan are experts in capturing images from a variety of devices ranging from specialised document readers (passport scanners), commodity A4 scanners and miscellaneous camera sources, for example, iPads/Smartphones/Webcams.
- Document recognition:
- IDscan can correctly classify, when using specialised document readers (passport scanners), more than 3,500 types of different documents covering proof of ID (passports, identity cards, driving licenses), proof of address (utility bills), proof of income (bank statements, payslips, tax document), right to work and residence (resident permits, visas, travel permits)
- Data extraction
- Utilising multiple ID scan technologies & components such as optical character recognition (OCR) we can accurately extract all the data represented on the documents whether it’s explicitly printed or implicitly encoded (for example, in a barcode) or a RFID biometric chip.
- Document authentication and verification:
- Authentication engines use sophisticated algorithms to audit the authenticity of the document and to provide a ‘yes/no’ answer. The engines are flexible and can work in a ‘full authentication’ mode when it’s supplied with multiple images and biometric chip data or in a ‘basic validation’ mode.Fake ID detection, Document OCR, Age Verification, Passport Scanning, Bespoke Software Development and ID Checking. Our IDscan software solutions and authentication processes can be applied to most scanner types to deliver low level MRZ and data collection, through to full UV, RFID, Coaxil, Smart Card and Infrared authentication through dedicated passport scanners.
- Biometric capturing/verification and identification:
- We use biometrics to provide additional authentication and other high level features. We compare the image taken from a biometric chip with the image on the visible passport.
IDscan provide automated document authentication, fake ID detection, ID checking, for more than 3,500 global identity documents and deliver authenticated, automated results. IDscan looks for over 3000 checks on each document in about 2 seconds.
IDscan uses advanced mathematical algorithms, colour wave-length technology together with an encyclopaedic knowledge of these documented IDs, to automatically process images captured by passport scanners to provide ID validation.
In this example of a Belgium passport the document has been corrupted by the fraudster applying their own details across the document
Here you see that the Infrared image shows no data – however the UV is correct and the fabric of the document was correct – It is only with IDscan that you discover that the real owner of the original passport revealed from the biometric chip is a young girl – IDscan uses further facial recognition checks to compare the image on the biometric chip with the passport photo.
Bill Scanning, data extraction and authentication from IDSCAN.
IDscans ‘Bill scan’ is able to read utility bills automatically and conduct authentications checks.
Simply load a bill on to a scanner, or snap shot from a smart phone or iPad or load it up to our server and IDscan will quickly understand what type of document it is and conduct validation and authentication checks.
IDscan is the only ID scanning business that can perform these checks automatically.
ID Bureau Service is a walk-in ID check service provided from our Canary Wharf offices which enables customers to bring physical documents such as passports or driving licenses to be inspected and authenticated – you will receive a 19 page report detailing the full authentication checks of the document including any Visas or work permits plus the option of receiving a “Route 2 CRB” check.

For businesses that hold a depository of historic IDs either photocopied or scanned, Batch Scan is an automated audit of these documents. Although this is not an authentication of your records it is an efficient inspection. IDscan’s OCR engine will interrogate your database extracting the OCR elements from ICAO compliant documents and conduct numerous cross digit checks from the extracted data.
Case Study: Batch Scan was used by a bank in Paris to audit account opening documents, during a single day Batch Scan processed 500,000 passports and French ID cards and revealed 1,329 fake documents.
IDscan’s product is capable of working with a large selection of passport scanners. Passport scanners are in essence an advanced digital camera.
Scanners provide a reliable, controlled environment, essential to authentication and image processing.
Built-in Reference Library
IDscan’s system have a built in reference library allowing you to compare scans in Infrared, UV and visible image against known genuine samples.
The system also allows you to superimpose one image on top of the other for further analysis.
Document Library Repository
An important consideration for this type of solution is the document library. Currently, our solution can classify over 3,500 document types. You can view the most current document list here.
Each document presented can be processed through more than 3,000 validation checks, the most basic of checks are those prescribed by ICAO standard 9303, which are machine readable zone (MRZ) checks with more sophisticated checks utilising hyper-advanced mathematical algorithms, colour wave-length technology together with an encyclopaedic knowledge of more than 3000+ documented IDs.
Live Support is an upgrade to any solution that puts you in touch with a document expert at any time. Selecting you CHAT button on your ID scan system channels you in directly to an experienced document expert to offer a further level of secure authorisation.
The CHAT button opens a direct window for our experts to view your screen and assist you with the document presented. Documents that are damaged, worn, exotic or new may need a second opinion. ID scan’s live support means that you will never have to experience what we call the “chocolate factor” . This is when a perfectly genuine document fails because a strategic portion of the document is covered, worn, damaged or has “chocolate” covering it.
Using Live Support, we will quickly identify the infringement and satisfy you that this is a false positive.
