SwissID uses PXL Vision’s technology for its identification process


The SwissSign Group, issuer of SwissID, has selected PXL Vision’s Digital Alter Ego (Daego) solution for their digital identity verification service. It is set to be launched during the second quarter of 2019.


To perform the digital identity verification for SwissID, the SwissSign Group will deploy the Daego technology of PXL Vision. Daego is a high-tech digital identity verification solution, which will enable SwissID users to have their identity verified in a quick, simple and secure manner. With this verified identity, users will have access to various online services, which require an identity check. The technology from PXL Vision is based on an entirely electronic end-to-end process. In the future, SwissID users will scan their valid identity document and take a short video selfie using their mobile phone. In real time, Daego will then check the authenticity of the document and match it to the user via the video recording. Once the check is successfully completed, confirmation of the verified identity is provided to the user. The Daego solution supports identity documents from more than 180 countries, meaning that the vast majority of Swiss residents will be able to create a verified identity. “We are delighted that with our technology we are enabling Swiss companies to operate more agilely and efficiently in an increasingly digital business environment”, says Michael Born, CEO of PXL Vision. Markus Naef, CEO of the SwissSign Group: “Our customers and partners expect the highest security standards and this is also true with regard to the identity verification with SwissID. It was therefore logical that we would implement the process for a trustworthy digital identity with a technology partner such as PXL Vision.” The digital identification solution will be made available to SwissID users during the second quarter of 2019.
