Combating Document Fraud

As the use of digital and mobile ID continues to accelerate, it is easy to forget that government issued physical credentials still underpin the identity ecosystem. This summit will bring together stakeholders dedicated to the design, personalisation and issuance of secure credentials, alongside law enforcement agencies seeking to detect and disrupt the efforts of fraudsters.

A Platform for Progress

Biometrics, identity management technologies, applications, public understanding,resulting policies and laws are all evolving rapidly, though often not at the same pace and not consistently.In political campaigns, leaders try to clarify and differentiate their positions on issues of the day by creating a “platform” with “planks” representing an approach to each issue.In an analogous fashion, though perhaps more logically, this opening address will posit a “platform” to navigate the diverse and often conflicting forces that sometimes impede or propel progress as we enter the third decade of the 21st century.

Star Alliance Biometrics Hub: A Digital Identity Platform for Passenger Journey

Visitors to the United States now enjoy frictionless boarding in many airports today using U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Traveler Verification Service (TVS).Last summer, the Star Alliance announced plans for a global Biometrics Hub, offeringsimilar capabilities to consenting enrolled passengers of the alliance’s 26 member airlines using the Star Digital Identity Platform.This keynote presentation will introduce basics of the program, key processes and the technology behind the scenes.

From Fake to Facts

Every written piece of dis-information and deep fake liked and shared online, puts a little dent in the fabric of trust of the Internet’s users. In 2020, what is the form of lies, and how far can they travel? What role do our phones, apps and social media play in this? Finally, what does this mean for you and me? A whirlwind through the modern use and abuse of the Internet, this keynote argues there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Forensic profiling of fraudulent identity documents: Projects conducted in Europe and North America

This presentation introduces PROFID, a successful and unique profiling system set up in Switzerland to detect and investigate criminal networks that produce, distribute or use fraudulent identity and travel documents. Half of the 2000 fraudulent documents profiled in the system were forensically linked, leading to the detection of more than 130 series or networks. PROFID has demonstrated that once a series is detected and investigated it soon ends up being solved, underlining the key contribution of forensic document examination in an intelligence-led policing perspective. The potential extension of the profiling system in Europe through a consortium supported by Europol will be presented. The challenges associated with developing and implementing such a profiling system will also be illustrated through a project conducted in Québec, Canada.

Risk Mitigation at the Border – A Best Practices Approach to Identity Authentication

Risk at a border point results from the inability of the traveler identity to be properly assessed. The technologies and processes used to assess the genuineness and authenticity of the claimed identity are the keys to the mitigation of this risk; and thereby, should be implemented to thwart the underlying criminal or terrorist activity that is being supported by a fraudulent identity claim.This session reviews the types of document fraud being encountered today; several mitigation measures that can be readily implemented to address this issue; and deployment considerations for each type of border control point (primary, secondary, kiosk, mobile).

Detect the Magic Passport for Criminals - A Story on Face Morph Detection

What if criminals can obtain perfectly legal passports under false names and with their own faces? It is a perfectly reasonable scenario today! Kiran Raja will talk about the risk of and detection of Face Morhped Images. A Face Morhped image contain at least two faces and thus give two persons the ability to use the same single images in identity documents. In many countries today there are risk of manipulating issuance and renewal of passports, which again enables a risk of fraud and undocumented travel.

Machine-Assisted ID Document Authentication - Where are we Now?

Automatic document authentication has become an essential tool at borders, whether as a support for a border guard or stand-alone in an e-gate. But how well do these systems really work? And above all, how can this be verified?
