Bioseal

BioSeal is a technology developed by id3 Technologies and Advanced Track & Trace. It is a robust and economical solution for both combating the fraudulent forgery of all types of documents and managing the identity of people through biometrics.

Secure documents with a 2D digital seal and biometrics

BioSeal is the solution for securing your digital or physical documents. It generates a visible and secure digital seal that will contain both the key information of the document and the biometric identity of the owner.

The high-density structure of the BioSeal barcode can store a large amount of information, up to 2,000 bytes, in a small, unmodifiable code. A digital signature guarantees the identification of the issuing body and the integrity of the document.

Built-in biometric data allows fully offline biometric authentication to guarantee the identity of the document owner. No need to connect to a remote server or a centralized database.

Digital signature and data encryption

A BioSeal® is a cryptographically signed data structure containing document and biometric features, encoded as a two-dimensional bar code and printed on a physical or digital medium. It ensures the authenticity and integrity of non-electronic documents in a comparatively cheap, but highly secure manner using asymmetric cryptography. The BioSeal complies with the standard of the Visible Electronic Seal (CEV) Otentik 1.0 and the digital signature respects French (RGS) and European (eIDAS) regulations.

Verify identities with biometric authentication

BioSeal is a secure and GDPR compliant solution for authenticating people with biometrics.

A BioSeal can contain at least one biometric template extracted from an image (face or fingerprint) supplied by the owner. This template is created thanks to the biometric algorithms developed by id3 Technologies. Biometric data is only stored in the code in order to protect and respect the privacy of personal data.

To identify the user, simply scan the bioseal and take a live image of the candidate’s face or fingerprint. Our algorithms will compare the data to verify that it is the right person. The Bioseal can be used to authenticate people in many use cases : access control, ticketing,e-transaction…Our solution is provided with facial recognition or fingerprint identification features.

An easy to use solution and many advantages

Privacy-by-design

The biometric data of the user’s face are directly encoded and stored in the BioSeal barcode. There is no private data storage in an external database.

Versatile

BioSeal is fully customizable to authenticate e-Certificates, ID documents, e-transactions… along with the holder’s biometry.

Cost efficient

BioSeal offers the security of a smart chip at the cost of a printout.

How it works

id3 Technologies provides an online web service and web components for BioSeal generation and verification. Webservices and web components can be used directly from id3’s website as SaaS or deployed
on premise on your physical or virtual host.

1. Capture user information

User information is captured in a desktop or web application. In case of a web application, face picture could be captured using id3 web-components, for example to ensure face quality and to perform anti-spoofing detection. This operation may be performed at an office with an enrolment officer, or at home by the customer itself.

2. Generate a code

Once the data is captured, enrolment application transmits all the information to the BioSeal API. This API returns a BioSeal picture in the specified format. The picture may remain digital (ie. in a PDF file, an email…) or can be printed on a physical support (card, smartcard, paper receipt…).

3. Verify a BioSeal

To check a BioSeal, the operator must scan it with a dedicated application which will check the content (header structure, signature verification…). If all verifications are successful, the data in the BioSeal are presented to the user or the automated system. A live capture of the user’s biometrics is then used for authentication.
