NIst

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

SCOPE > INTERNATIONAL

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.

Qualified Products Catalog (CCN) - Vídeo-identification Tools

SCOPE > SPAIN AND EUROPE

Veridas’ biometric digital identity verification solution has been the first to obtain the qualification of the Spanish National Cryptologic Center (CCN), by accrediting compliance with all the security requirements included in Annex F.11 of the ICT Security Guide CCN-STIC-140, with ENS High category.

This solution consists of a validation of the identity document presented, a biometric comparison between the photo included in the document and a selfie of the person carrying the process, an active proof of life and a video identification process. In addition, the solution also includes a monitoring tool that enables manual review of all processes by an agent.

For the issuance of a qualified electronic certificates, eIDAS Regulation establishes the need for qualified electronic service providers (QTSPs) to perform an identity verification of the applicant. For this purpose, eIDAS Regulation establishes several ways of performing this identity verification, and in Spain Law 6/2020 allowed it to be performed by non face-to-face means. For this purpose, QTSPs must comply with the provisions of Order ETD/465/2021 (later updated by Order ETD/743/2022). Precisely, one of the requirements is that QTSPs must use a video-identification tool that has been qualified or certified by the National Cryptologic Center, accrediting compliance with the technical requirements of Annex F.11 of its Security Guide CCN-STIC-140.

Ministerial Order ETD/465/2021

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.
