Identity Proofing Definition and Examples

Understanding Identity Proofing for e-Signing

In the world of digital transactions, identity verification is essential to maintain security and trust. Identity Proofing is the process of verifying the identity of a person to ensure they are who they claim to be. This is particularly critical in e-signing scenarios to prevent fraud and maintain the integrity of signed documents.

Key Concepts of Identity Proofing

  1. Verification Methods:

    • Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA): This method asks the user questions based on information they should know, such as previous addresses or financial activities.
    • Document Verification: Users submit identification documents like a driver's license or passport, which are then analyzed for authenticity.
    • Biometric Verification: Involves the use of biometric data such as fingerprints or facial recognition to confirm identity.
    • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Combines something the user knows (password) with something the user has (phone for SMS verification) to enhance security.
  2. Applications in e-Signing:

    • Ensures that the person signing a document is indeed the intended signer.
    • Prevents unauthorized access to sensitive documents.
    • Enhances the legal standing of electronically signed documents by ensuring signer authenticity.
  3. Industry Examples:

    • Healthcare: Patients sign consent forms electronically, ensuring that only the patient or authorized personnel can sign.
    • Real Estate: Buyers and sellers sign contracts electronically, with identity proofing eliminating the risk of fraudulent transactions.
    • Legal Documents: Legal agreements and contracts are signed digitally, with identity proofing ensuring the integrity and authenticity of signers.
