365id NFC Scanner
Read and verify the electronic
chip in ID documents
Historically, you could say that ID scanners are large, clumsy and expensive machines that require an IT project to start and months of maintenance each year for companies or agencies considering using them.
With this background, 365id and 365id Scanner came to life. With cutting-edge technology, both in the actual handling, you only need the internet and power, the scanning procedure, the verification and the infrastructure, 365id revolutionized the ID security industry.
How does it work?
Traditional ID scanners allow a local computer handle the software for identifying, verifying and managing the images the ID scanner takes. 365id went another way and made the service cloud-based, where the scanner acts as an advanced camera, taking a standard white, an infrared and an ultraviolet image. These are encrypted and then sent to 365id servers.
At the same time, the scanner’s NFC (Near Field Communication) reads out the electronic chip on the ID document and attached to the images sent to the servers.
Once received in the cloud, the images are unpacked and identified on the white image. With the help of the UV and IR images, the security details are checked, which determines whether the document is genuine or false.
All textual information is read out from the document, e.g. name and expiration date, and all information is available via our API or USB cable for further use.
