Mobile Onboarding Using NFC and ePassports: The Final Step for a Digital Consumer Identity

Identity documents are increasingly used to verify someone’s identity online, e.g., to implement a Know Your Customer in the banking sector. Over the last year several European banks started leveraging the NFC capability of smartphones for this, including Rabobank, ING and DNB, as did the UK Home Office for the EU Settlement Scheme. Users hold their own smartphone to their ePassport to read and verify the embedded contactless RFID chip. Maarten will provide his view on why this new technology is replacing existing technologies based on photos of identity documents and/or video identification, how to combine it with selfies with liveness checks and lessons learned from the first deployments.

Key takeaways

- Current digital onboarding technologies lack security and user convenience
- Leveraging the NFC-capability of smartphones in combination with government-issued identity documents with RFID chips is the way forward
- There are successful first large-scale deployments in the banking and government sectors
