In recent blog posts, I discussed the Mobile Enrollment Conundrum – the challenge of optimizing mobile enrollment (which everyone wants) while managing identity risk. Intelligent Mobile Imaging is a key component of the solution, in which a four-step process is used to make a complex process look simple for the user. The starting point is a verifiable document that the user can simply “snap” (example: Drivers License). So, how does that work?
First, Driver’s Licenses are a complex document, intentionally, to make it difficult to fake. The name or address is often obscured by a watermark or other overlay. Some text is light-on-dark, while others are dark-on-light. The face of the document is reflective, making for some interesting issues.
