Use Cases


Biometric Verification

During the enrollment process for identity cards, governments capture biometrics and store this information within the Automated Biometric Information System (ABIS) and the smartcard chip of the identity document. The small yet exceptionally powerful IDENTOS device, is perfect for key applications like border control, banking “know your customer” verification, and law enforcement identity checks enhancing security in these critical areas. An example of this is the UAE Government integration.

Financial & Insurance

Mobile Customer Contracts

In a departure from the traditional mode where clients visit a branch office, this innovative approach involves banks and insurance agents going directly to clients’ premises to enroll new customers and sign contracts using strong identity verification provided by matching identity card data with biometrics for authentication and eSignatures.  By leveraging tables, apps and eID cards, agents can streamline workflows, ensuring legally binding and compliant contracts with enhanced convenience and efficiency.


Telco SIM Card Registration

The challenge lies in the prevalence of over 60% prepaid mobile phone contracts, which raise security concerns due to their anonymity. To address this, the solution involves using the Tactivo mini Optical device connected to a tablet or smartphone which reads the client’s eID, matches their fingerprint, and registers the SIM card by scanning a barcode. This streamline process ensures that a customer’s ID is securely linked with the SIM card in just three simple steps ensuring traceability to a verified individual.
