IDENTITY VERIFICATION: HOW NOT TO CHOOSE BETWEEN TRUST AND CONVERSION

Remote identity verification is the corner stone for any digital identity system, and at the same time infamous for dramatic conversion and fraud risks. In the old days static knowledge based on data linked to users was used for the identity verification, but causes both fraud and low conversion. Current approaches center around document centric  identity verification, leveraging the NFC chip in modern identity documents when possible.  In this presentation we provide an analysis of technologies that can be used here, and their advantages and disadvantages in terms of conversion and trust.
