Control ID

Control ID

Control ID gives you the option of immediate identification of officially issued documents, also allowing you to verify their authenticity using the latest technologies. By undertaking a number of forensic tests focused on the quality and specificity of concrete document types, the software can recognise documents from throughout the world. A key component of Control ID is the library, which contains metadata samples of more than 2 500 documents.

It recognises all documents issued according to the ICAO 9300 standard (standard passports and e-passports), as well as non-standard passports. You can check ID cards, passports, visas, driving licences, military ID cards, foreigner residence permits and more.

The Control ID library using a suitable reader allows you to

  • Classify an identity document – identify the issuer, precise type and series (this requires capturing a complete image of the document using visible and UV light)
  • Extract data from the document (as for MRZ, it contains mapped fields from  VIZ, 1D and 2D barcodes, RFID chips and magnetic strips)
  • Undertake a number of security checks to determine document authenticity (by capturing the document using infrared and UV light)
  • Acquire detailed data, test results, original images and a number of partial images
