Secure electronic reading of ID card data

For the more than 500 million business transactions that take place each year, companies and organizations need to capture customer ID data at the so-called point of sale, especially when it comes to new customers. When entering into a contract, staff on site usually copy the customer's ID card and then enter this data manually into the computer system. But this can lead to errors and slow down the identification process.

Automated optical recognition using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is often unreliable, especially when it comes to the address labels used on German ID cards. The AusweisIDent On-Site solution enables data to be read from the ID card chip in an error-free, electronic process. 

Without an online ID function or PIN

The chip data can be read out from all valid ID cards, electronic residence permits and ID cards for EU citizens. It is not necessary to activate the online ID function, nor do customers need to know their secret PIN.

AusweisIDent On-Site as part of on-site identification

The service can be integrated into an existing procedure at companies, for instance, for on-site identification. One useful added benefit of this system is that the authenticity of the document itself is also checked because the system will detect any manipulation of the chip.

Fast and secure identification at test centers

One current example of the application at work is registration at COVID-19 test centers. With AusweisIDent On-Site, staff can transfer the citizen's ID data into the test center’s IT system in a matter of seconds.

Reading ID card data 
The customer service staff member reads the required electronic data from the chip of the ID card or electronic residence permit using a reader or an NFC-enabled smart phone.

This procedure is legally compliant pursuant to sec. 18a of the German Act on Identity Cards and Electronic Identification.

Data transmission
The electronic data read out is made available to the company or public authority via a standardized web interface (OpenID Connect/OAuth2).
