IDnow welcomes Bundesnetzagentur decision and predicts turning point for digital identity verification

IDnow introduces automated identity verification for highly regulated use cases
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Bundesnetzagentur (Federal Network Agency) paves the way for artificial intelligence to be used for identity verification in Germany and sets milestone for the application of German technology.

he decision of Bundesnetzagentur to allow AI (artificial intelligence) based identification methods for new use cases in Germany is a confirmation of IDnow’s platform strategy and at the same time a turning point in international competition for German technology companies.

With the publication “Video identification with automated procedure” for automated optical identity verification by Bundesnetzagentur in cooperation with the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), AI-based solutions for the verification of customers are now approved for certain use cases in Germany in addition to the proven methods.

The published order is based on the German Trust Services Act, which implements the eIDAS Regulation in Germany. The catalogue of criteria published by Bundesnetzagentur and BSI prescribes high technology standards for automated identity verification. IDnow is one of the few European providers that has already been officially confirmed with other methods by Bundesnetzagentur within the scope of an accredited conformity assessment and is now also already working on the confirmation for AutoIdent.

IDnow has been using automated identification technology for many years. With its product IDnow AutoIdent, IDnow is one of the leading providers of automated identification in Germany. As early as 2012, IDnow filed a patent application for fully automated identification procedures, which has since been granted by the European Patent Office. “We are pleased that the regulatory authorities have now finally opened up to technological development in Germany and see our years of research into the development of our own AI technology confirmed,” says Armin Bauer, founder and Chief Technology Officer of IDnow. In addition to this patent, IDnow holds other patents and patent applications at the European level.

IDnow’s technology uses so-called Deep Learning to perform an identification at the same security level as a personal identification – for example in a branch. For this purpose, the self-developed artificial intelligence automatically recognises the security features of the ID documents in a video stream and performs a biometric face comparison of a video selfie with the ID document. This is complemented by new security mechanisms such as a “liveness detection” that prevents attacks through recorded videos and photos.

IDnow sees the regulator’s decision as an important step towards a digital society in Germany and a fundamental turning point for German companies in international market comparison. The established and very successful services such as the electronic ID card, BankIdent or the VideoIdent procedure can now be supplemented with AI-based AutoIdent methods for new use cases. IDnow expects a significant change for German consumers: The new decree will make innovative technologies such as digital identities accessible to the broad population in the future – regardless of the individual citizen’s affinity for technology. This is because the new regulation enables platform companies such as IDnow to offer the appropriate digital methods for identity verification in each case.

“The decision of Bundesnetzagentur is an important milestone for platform companies like IDnow. In the future, IDnow, as one of the leading European platform providers, will be able to offer additional, automated identification methods to numerous other industries in Europe. This is an essential step towards a digital future in Germany and for Europe and shows that the time for secure digital identities has come,” says Andreas Bodczek, CEO of IDnow. “Consumer security is always at the forefront of the development of our procedures. For many years, we as IDnow have therefore been actively working with various organisations in politics and regulation to jointly shape this secure, European future,” he adds.

IDnow is one of the leading providers of digital identities with a broad portfolio of products and solutions and identifies several million citizens per year with its platform. The portfolio offered here includes identification methods from offline to online, from automated methods to procedures carried out by identity specialists, available flexibly online, offline in branches and even by courier at the user’s doorstep. IDnow has expanded its role in recent years far beyond simply offering individual ident methods and has become the overarching platform for digital identities with several million transactions per year.

Just last month, IDnow announced the acquisition of identity Trust Management AG, one of the leading international providers of on and offline verification from Germany. This is the second acquisition in the last six months for IDnow and represents an important milestone on the way to becoming the leading identity platform in Europe. The acquisition of identity Trust Management AG enables IDnow to expand into new industries and offer its services to a broader customer base in Germany and beyond.

ORYX exclusive content goes live on StarVegas in significant Swiss boost

ORYX Gaming, a Bragg Gaming Group company, has secured an agreement to supply its range of exclusive slots to Swiss operator Casino Interlaken, marking the iGaming supplier’s expansion in the market.

The deal provides players at Casino Interlaken’s online brand, StarVegas.ch, with access to ORYX’s proprietary slots library as well as its selection of exclusive RGS content from providers including GAMOMAT, Golden Hero, Kalamba Games, Giveme Games and Peter & Sons.

The deal has been made possible by ORYX’s ISO/IEC 27001 certificate which underpins the supplier’s commitment to information security and is a prerequisite of entering the regulated Swiss online market which opened in January 2019.

In the latest figure released by the Swiss gambling regulator, the seven casinos that offered online games in the country in 2020 achieved gross gaming revenue of approximately US $203 million (CHF186.8 million). This compared to US $26 million (CHF23.5 million) generated in 2019 when only four casinos were operating online.

The partnership with Interlaken marks ORYX’s third in the country following deals with leading operators Grand Casino Luzern and Grand Casino Baden.

The Interlaken deal is the latest in ORYX’s continued growth across European regulated markets and comes on the back of recent entries into Greece, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom markets. The supplier is now licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), the Romanian National Gambling Office (ONJN), and the Greek Hellenic Commission (HGC) and its content is certified or approved in multiple other key jurisdictions.

Chris Looney, Chief Commercial Officer at Bragg Gaming, said: “Our partnership with Interlaken is another important step in our efforts to grow our game provision in the industry.

“Switzerland is a market with much potential and it’s a feather in our cap to have our content on such a well-respected brand there.”

Jens Sellgrad, Chief Operating Officer, at Interlaken, added: “We’re always looking to have the latest quality content available to our players and this agreement with ORYX certainly delivers that.

“The seamless manner in which the delivery has taken place is especially pleasing and we’re confident this solid start will continue through our relationship.”

RB Leipzig and 888sport – one of the world’s leading sports betting providers – have agreed a partnership which will last until at least 2023 and the partnership will begin at the Bundesliga home match against FSV Mainz 05. 888sport has become an Official Partner of the Red Bulls.

Alongside significant TV-relevant advertising presence (such as Cam Carpets next to the goals, LED-board animations), 888sports will primarily be present on our digital channels. As well as the branding at the stadium, 888sport will become the presenter of the RBL predictor game, which gives fans a chance to win special prizes such as signed shirts, VIP tickets and season tickets for next season over the course of the campaign.

This will be 888sport’s first involvement in the Bundesliga, which makes it crucial that the partnership is designed in a way which fits both parties’ brands. The positioning of the multiple award-winning sports betting provider is one which is based on a readiness to innovate and the resulting reputation as a pioneer in the technology sector. 888sport wants to expand further in the German market and its motto “Safer. Better. Together” demonstrates its commitment to safe and responsible sports betting.

Matthias Reichwald, Chief Commercial Officer of RB Leipzig:

“As in the rest of football, we are always looking to strengthen in the area of partnerships, especially those who fit our philosophy and orientation. We have found one of these in 888sport and we’re proud that 888sport sees us as a suitable partner for their first entry into the Bundesliga.

888sport is an established brand who would like to grow further on a national and international level, which exactly corresponds to our vision, and now we can take on this challenge together.”

Kieran Spellman, Vice President Head of 888sport:

“We are proud to announce this long-term partnership with RB Leipzig, one of the most ambitious football clubs in Europe, and become their official partner. The team has developed at a rapid pace and shown how you can climb to the very top of Europe playing attractive, offensive football, having already come second in the Bundesliga and reaching the Champions League round of 16 last season.

We can’t wait to support the club with their future development and do our part to help RB Leipzig continue to establish themselves as one of the top three teams in Germany. This comes alongside the regulation and successful licensing for 888sport in the German online sports betting market. This partnership is a signal of 888sport’s long-term commitment to Germany.”

 

Pedro Barreda, Director International Marketing & Head of Sponsorships of 888sport:

“We’re looking forward to working with RB Leipzig and to being part of their journey for at least the next one and a half years. 888 are a world leader in their field, and RB Leipzig are one of the top clubs in European football, so this partnership is a perfect fit and will strongly support us with our ambitious plans for the newly-regulated German sports betting market.”
