Identity Proofing

Resolving, Validating and Verifying an Individual's Identity

Identity Resolution. The first step.

Confirmation that an identity has been resolved to a unique individual within a particular context i.e. no other individual has the same set of attributes

Identity Validation. The second step.

Confirmation of the accuracy of the identity as established by an authoritative source. Identity validation does not ensure that an individual is asserting their own identity, only that the identity is accurate and timely

Identity Verification. The last step.

Confirmation that the identity is claimed by the rightful individual
