SecureKey to integrate Onfido biometrics and document check for real-time photo ID checks



Biometrics and document-checking technology from Onfido will be integrated with real-time authentication and verification capabilities offered by SecureKey Technologies in the coming months through a new partnership announced by the companies.

The enhanced SecureKey offering will be uniquely broad, according to the announcement, allowing users to scan identity documents like passports or driver’s licenses, and verify other personal information in real-time through trusted sources such as financial institutions, credit bureaus, telecoms and government agencies. Along with credential login and document validation suited to the needs of banks and telecommunications companies, SecureKey says it makes identity verification more secure and safe for consumers.

“We’re thrilled to leverage Onfido’s best-in-class technology as a complement to our existing technology stack. Our partnership demonstrates positive market movement towards a more secure digital future for consumers,” comments SecureKey Technologies CEO Greg Wolfond. “At SecureKey, we believe strong, privacy-based digital identity requires the collaboration of multiple players and are pleased to continue our track record of developing market-leading digital identity services and offerings alongside like-minded organizations. We’re excited to plan our global expansion, using our digital identity services as interoperable solutions across markets.”

Onfido’s technology can asses more than 4,500 document types from 195 countries with document checks and selfie biometrics in a hybrid AI approach.

“At Onfido, our mission is to create a more open world, where identity is the key to access. SecureKey clearly shares this same drive to build a more secure landscape where customers can have privacy, security and consent all in one easy-to-use process,” says Onfido CEO Husayn Kassai. “We’re excited to watch how our technology will continue to make customers’ lives easier within the SecureKey networks and bring the future of digital identity closer.”

Authentication of passports and driver’s licenses will be available initially, followed by provincial health and residency cards.

SecureKey launched a federated digital ID product for customers of Canadian financial institutions last year. Onfido was named to CB Insights’ AI Top 100 earlier this month.
