Veridas has been submitting its technologies to NIST evaluations since 2018 and continues to do so with the firm belief that constant scrutiny is the only way to maintain its position as a world leader in the biometric solutions market.
We are the only company in the world to be present at the NIST 1:1 and 1:N assessments in facial, and voice recognition (1:1)
The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is the world’s most trusted institution for biometric solutions. (NIST) is the most relevant institution in the standardization of biometric technologies. NIST conducts periodic evaluations of biometric engines submitted by different vendors to assess and provide unbiased rates of accuracy and performance in different environments.
NIST participation is entirely free and open to any vendor or institution.

Veridas has ISO 30107-3 from iBeta. This certificate approves that the proof-of-life and facial biometric identity verification technology has successfully passed all the demanding requirements regarding attacks in verifying individuals’ identities.
ISO/IEC 30107 refers to the detection of presentation attacks or, in other words, the detection of attempts to impersonate or deceive the system. For this purpose, Veridas solutions have active and passive anti-spoofing mechanisms (depending on whether or not they require user action).
All Veridas systems include anti-spoofing fraud prevention techniques. In addition, Veridas’ facial recognition system (das-Face) has achieved iBETA certification to ISO/IEC 30107-3 Level 1.
SCOPE > SPAIN AND EUROPE
Veridas has submitted its video identification tool to the evaluation of Dekra Testing & Certification, as a specialized laboratory and conformity assessment body, and the accredited entity concluded that the solution meets all the minimum security requirements set out in Annex F.11 of the ICT Security Guide CCN-STIC-140, of the National Cryptologic Center of High category.
This requirement must be met by the tools used by trusted electronic service providers (QTSPs) when they wish to use non-face-to-face identification methods for those requesting qualified electronic certificates. The Order ETD/465/2021, of May 6, which regulates the processes of remote identification by video for the issuance of qualified electronic certificates, in development of Law 6/2020, of November 11, enabled them to perform this procedure straightforwardly, seeking to bring qualified electronic certificates closer to all citizens without losing guarantees of reliability, security, and privacy.
SCOPE > SPAIN
Dekra Testing & Certification has evaluated Veridas’ video-call and video-identification systems based on the requirements established in the authorizations issued by SEPBLAC (Executive Service of the Commission for the Prevention of Money Laundering and Monetary Offenses), concluding that its technologies allow the implementation of a procedure following the requirements of these circulars and that they can accredit a level of security in terms of reliability equivalent to physical presence.
SCOPE > SPAIN
Veridas has technological solutions that allow regulated entities to implement these customer identification procedures non-face-to-face using video-call and video identification.
Due diligence obligations aim to identify and get to know those individuals or legal entities that intend to establish business relationships with regulated entities.
Article 21.1.d) of the Regulation of Law 10/2010, of April 28, approved by Royal Decree 304/2014, of May 5, provides that obliged entities may establish business relations or execute transactions by telephone, electronic or telematic means with clients who are not physically present when the identity of the client is accredited by the use of secure client identification procedures in non-face-to-face transactions, provided that such methods have been previously authorized by SEPBLAC.

Veridas offers digital identity verification solutions with its certified products that allow financial institutions to comply with regulatory requirements.
The Mexican National Banking and Securities Commission is in charge of issuing the applicable regulation, among others, on the prevention of money laundering, which requires the verification of the identity of service applicants in different types of banking institutions.
SCOPE > SPAIN
The eIDAS Regulation requires the verification of the identity of applicants for qualified electronic certificates, something that, thanks to Law 6/2020 of November 11, can be done in Spain in a non-presential manner. Order ETD/465/2021, of May 6, regulates how this non-presential identification must be carried out, which, among other measures, includes the requirement to verify the authenticity and validity of the identity document, as well as its correspondence with the certificate applicant, through facial recognition technologies (using biometric engines evaluated by the NIST), and to verify that it is a live person who is not being impersonated.
Veridas offers certified technology based on these requirements and assists Trusted Electronic Service Providers (QTSPs) in complying with Order ETD/465/2021.
