Massachusetts RMV investigators will use the facial recognition aspects of IDVS
to compare the facial characteristics in a new photo of an applicant against similar facial images in the RMV's database of approximately 10 million portraits from previous applications.
To further enhance the authentication process, the Digimarc IDVS software consolidates authentication results from multiple features and document designs into a secure archive for a more detailed view by authorized personnel.
Digimarc IDVS can be deployed on a stand-alone basis or integrated into new or existing identity verification, document inspection and credential issuance systems.
Digimarc's IDVS solution is available to federal government issuers of IDs and system integrators.
Designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of identification inspection at the DMV, the Digimarc IDVS offering provides authentication results in an easy-to-read format for operators, supervisors and inspectors.
The Digimarc IDVS system determines whether the ID is genuine, altered or counterfeit by reading and authenticating multiple, machine-readable security features found in driver licenses, passports and other credentials such as IDMarc(TM) digital watermarks, barcodes, magnetic stripes, and optical variable image devices such as Kinegrams.
Built upon Digimarc's modular software platform, the Digimarc IDVS system can be deployed stand-alone or integrated into new or existing document inspection and issuance systems.
Digimarc also plans to make the Digimarc IDVS solution available to law enforcement agencies, retailers and financial institutions as a means to authenticate credentials presented to establish identity, access restricted areas, purchase controlled products such as alcohol, tobacco and firearms, or conduct financial transactions.
The integration of the Digimarc IDVS system along with leading reader devices, scanners and software provide DMV personnel, law enforcement officials, and system integrators a new and more powerful method to positively authenticate driver licenses and identity documents across a variety of inspection environments -- from police cruisers to transportation access points to DMV offices to forensic labs," said J.

We are excited to partner with Digimarc to deploy our i-Dentify reader-authenticator as part of the foundation for Digimarc's IDVS solution in support of the goals of the federal ID security legislation and to bring to market best-of-breed solutions to fight identity theft and fraud," said Bruce Reeves, CEO, AssureTec.
As an optional module of the Digimarc IDVS system, the AssureTec i-Dentify(TM) Model ID-300-RA reader-authenticator is an imaging unit that captures full color, infrared, ultraviolet and coaxial images from all ISO-7501/ICAO-9303-compliant documents such as passports, visas, and national travel cards (ID-1, ID-2 and ID-3) as well as non-ICAO-compliant documents including driver licenses, IATA standard ATB1, ATB2, and TAT document types.
