Electronic Identity Authentication

What is Electronic Identity Authentication?

Electronic Identity Authentication is the process of verifying someone's identity electronically through either behavioural data or questions. The data and responses received are then analysed to highlight any suspicious activity that might indicate identity fraud or money laundering. Using electronic ID authentication as a convenient method to establish identity is now becoming more widespread.
