Passport Reader

eIDAS compliant identity proofing

Instead of driving customers to physical branches, Nets Passport Reader helps you achieve a fully digital, secure and frictionless onboarding experience.

According to eIDAS Art. 24.1 sub d, Passport Reader provides equivalent assurance in terms of reliability to physical presence.

Identify your customers with just a mobile device and passport.​​​

Passport Reader scans and reads over 150+ ICAO compliant machine-readable identity (ID) documents (passports, driving licenses, and residence cards) with an NFC enabled mobile phone; ensures that the person carrying out the process is the rightful owner of the document using biometrics; ensures that the information is transmitted in a secure manner. The attributes collected uniquely identify the applicant as a natural person in the identity proofing context.

Reduced maintenance, operational and compliance costs

Nets Passport Reader is hosted and managed in our Nets infrastructure, and can be used in combination with E-Ident and/or E-Signing.

As an example, E-Ident provides your customers with an activation code or QR code to download the Passport Reader app and to safely inititate an authentication session.

Only personal data needed to fulfil the purpose is collected. We process personal data with care and handle all the compliance complexity related to mobile device data transport, processing, storage, transfer, access and control.
