Number of the Year: Regula's Document Template Database Has Exceeded 12,000 Samples, With Even More Elect
Regula, a global developer of forensic devices and identity verification solutions, has enlarged its document template database. Now it consists of over 12,000 templates of more than 200 different document types from 248 countries and territories. This huge knowledge base enables Regula's customers to instantly recognize and analyze nearly all the identity documents in the world, including the rarest ones, on the most comprehensive and precise level.
Among all this variety of identity documents, the company's experts have overseen the addition of even more e-documents, or biometric documents, which nowadays are considered to be the most secure and resistant to forgery. As of today, Regula's database contains more than 1,600 e-documents from different countries (including electronic passports, ID cards, driver's licenses, residence permits, etc.) and approximately half of them were added to the database in the last five years.
"It's no surprise that e-documents with RFID chips are currently prevailing in many countries. As document forgery becomes more sophisticated, so does document protection. RFID chips are considered to be a reliable method of securing an identity document. However, this is the case only if the chips can be authenticated correctly, with a comprehensive ID verification solution certified in accordance with industry standards. Also, when authenticating RFID chips remotely (in online onboarding scenarios, for example), it's vital to perform advanced server-side authentication, as it's the only way to prove their genuineness," explains Ihar Kliashchou, Chief Technology Officer at Regula.
