Frequently asked questions

Identity proofing is the process by which an organization collects, validates and verifies information about an identity, which may include an individual’s identity history, credentials and identity documents.

While identity proofing is the initial confirmation of an identity, identity authentication is the ongoing process that rechecks the validity and integrity of an identity.

Identity verification is confirming that an identity exists and that all of the information provided is correctly tied to a single person. This is a part of identity proofing but doesn’t extend to confirming that the user presenting the identity is the true owner of that identity.
