Document fraud has become the third largest criminal industry in the world. Whether it is to take advantage of an unauthorized good or service, to flee legal proceedings, or to usurp identities, the motivations of fraudsters are multiple. Fraud involves not only identity documents, but also many other documents, which we call “supporting documents”: invoices, pay slips, bank details, contracts, etc. A significant number of these documents have no integrity measures, so it is easy for some fraudsters, using sophisticated techniques, to modify them without being visible to the naked eye.
SmartStamp.io is our solution for document securing. It allows you to generate and affix a 2D-Doc Visible Digital Seal (VDS) in a few seconds, in the form of a 2-dimensional barcode on any document. This VDS then contains the essential information of the document in clear text as well as the hash signed by the issuer, and ensures that the delivered document is authentic and has not been falsified.
SmartStamp.io allows you to secure all types of documents, both paper and digital, guaranteeing their protection, and thus helps to combat the forgery and fraudulent use of supporting documents.
Efficiently combat fraud by securing documents at their source
Digitizing and certifying documents as soon as they are issued
The 2D-Doc twodimensional bar code standard consists in inserting a two-dimensional bar code containing the document’s key information (document type, sender’s first and last names, title, address, invoice number) and the issue date of the document or 2D bar code. This information is locked in by an electronic signature stemming from the data’s hash function, which guarantees the ID of the sender organisation and the document’s integrity.
This solution can be used to secure all types of documents: both paper-form and digital. Targeted documents mostly include supporting items (water, telephone and energy bills, insurance and rent receipts, bank details, income statements, etc.) used by private individuals and professionals when dealing with companies and the Administration.
The 2D-Doc bar code is electronically signed by the private key corresponding to a public key placed in a certificate to the likes of “server seal”. This asymmetric encryption means anyone with the public key belonging to the sender can check the signature on the other side.
This standard creates a visible signature that can only be verified by a machine (such as a scanner or bar code reader). If the signature is correct, this means the data is accurate and thus that the document is authentic.
By generating the 2D-Doc certificate on the documents, you certify the authenticity of the paper or electronic document and make it unforgeable.
SmartStamp.io thus offers a fast and secure technology to fight document fraud while securing sensitive data and key information from the document to the source.
Developed by ARIADNEXT, in close collaboration with the Ministry of the Interior via the Agence Nationale des Titres Sécurisés (ANTS), the 2D-Doc certificate is a simple and effective way to ensure the conformity of data present on a document.
ARIADNEXT is the first Certification Authority to be referenced by the ANTS and authorized to issue 2D-Doc certificates.
Physical security is often very costly to implement on documents affected by document fraud.
The document securing service SmartStamp.io provides fast and cost-effective technology that fully addresses these constraints and delivers an innovative customer experience. All for the cost of a print run.
The document securiting process is conducted in three stages.
As the co-inventor of the 2D-Doc alongside the ANTS
(French National Agency of Secured Identities), ARIADNEXT
quite naturally became a founding member of the AIGCEV
(International Association for the Governance of Visible Digital Seals).
