What is identity proofing?
The goal of identity proofing is to verify whether individuals are who they claim to be. Identity proofing is applied in the acquisition and origination stages of the Customer Life Cycle and typically performed during or prior to activities such as account opening, biometric enrollment, or when users sign up for a service.
Why is identity proofing important?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Special Publication 800-63-3, Digital Identity Guidelines calls for collecting and assessing multiple pieces of user asserted evidence to make an identity proofing decision. These changes have been made because of the continuous compromise of personally identifiable information (PII), including elements such as name, SSN, and physical address.
