- Using Facial Matching + Document Authentication on Self-Service Kiosks
As businesses depend more on self-service kiosks to shorten lines, minimize personnel needs, and offer age-restricted items; they must carefully consider improving security and offer an efficient solution to validate the identity of their customers. Thankfully, ID authentication technology is broadening these capabilities with solutions that enable these unmanned stations to support use cases like enrollment, hotel check-in and check-out, building access, financial transactions, airport security, marijuana and alcohol dispensing, pharmaceutical pick-up, and more. A new era for self-service kiosks When consumers think of self-service kiosks, they frequently picture retail self-checkout stations or ATMs, but kiosk manufacturers and software integrators have made far more "lightweight" installations feasible. Kiosk applications exist that use a simple mount for a camera-equipped laptop or can simply sit on a desk. A kiosk station with very sophisticated ID authentication capabilities may be placed for a lot less money and with a smaller footprint than people think, even with the addition of an ID card reader or a badge printer. Contrary to what you would think, this kiosk technology is easily deployable in more locations and for a multitude of uses. How does it work? This solution combines the power of Thales’s Facial Matching Platform with its trusted document readers to authenticate individuals against their presented ID document – proving ownership, validity, and authenticity.

- Biometric Kiosks – Thales Biometric Devices Now Available at UCP!
Unattended Card Payments Inc. (UCP) has announced the expansion of its product portfolio to include Thales document readers and biometric scanners. In today’s digital world where self-service is common, there is a need to provide different industries with products that address Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements. Multiple industries need a safe and secure way to ensure KYC compliance at their kiosks. Popular airport kiosks used for expedited security line access and border crossings are just two examples of document readers and biometric scanners being used in self-service. Other industries such as gaming, hospitality, and age-restricted retail also need a solution for automated KYC. Thales’s line of document readers and their proprietary software can read and compare identification documents against an expansive and up-to-date worldwide library of government-issued ID templates. Their readers take multiple high-resolution images of ID documents like passports and ID cards and check the image for embedded security features against the issuer’s template to authenticate the document. When used in combination with ID authentication and identity-verification software, integrators can go a step further and ping supported ID issuer databases to confirm the legitimacy of the document.
- The End of Signatures for Credit Transactions
If you live in the US and use a credit card for in-store purchases you are probably used to signing your name or, if you are like me, scribbling on a receipt or electronic signature pad in order to complete the transaction. You have also probably thought to yourself, is this really necessary, is this adding any extra security against someone using my card without my consent? When you stop and think about it the answer is… no, it doesn’t. While it would be much more secure to do what most other countries have done and assign PINs to credit cards just like our debit cards have, the US card issuers thought chip and signature would provide smoother migration to EMV. With the switch to EMV chip cards, the card issuers have security measures in place that are exponentially better than that of the old magstripe cards. Due to this, all major card brands have announced that they are dropping the signature requirement for credit purchases in North America. The four major card brands in the US, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are changing the requirements for credit card signatures effective April 2018. Each card issuer is adding new rules or amending the old ones regarding signatures. Being asked to sign for your credit card purchase won’t stop across the board but starting April 2018 you can expect it to occur a lot less frequently. Card fraud at merchant locations using EMV card terminals has fallen by two-thirds according to Visa so I think it’s safe to say that over the past 2 plus years the chips have done their job. All this said, there are still a ton of merchants out there who have not yet made the EMV migration and for them, the signatures remain. The most common reason these merchants have not made the switch is cost. While the EMV-capable terminals can be costly, they are a worthwhile investment. Not only will a merchant be able to stop hassling their customers by using a pen that never seems to write on the receipt or trying to sign their name using an electronic signature pad they are protecting themselves against being liable for fraudulent card present transactions. That’s right merchants who are still using magstripe, think of the cost associated in making the EMV migration as insurance because you would never start a business without being insured right?
