I may not have understood the question completely and nor do I think I have the answer, but maybe this will help.


I agree it may be 'more or less impossible' right now, but in time, with pan jurisdiction federation it won't be.


One way to help mitigate the risks here is to use  a service like Keesing https://keesingreferencesystems.com/

At least that would help determine if the presented document was fraudulent.

Of course it is relying on the docs, not the authoritative source, but as I say..step in the right direction.


I can see that in-person means you have the 'presenter links' to the identity principle covered (in NZ EOI standard parlance). you don't have that ability with remote proofing, hence the referencing records..maybe.. :-)

> Hello,

> We are trying to apply the requirements (AL2_ID_RPV#020 Evidence checks,

> or even on another continent. The requirement to inspect and analyse the

> For a In-Person Public Identity Proofing, there is no requirement to

> based on a stronger identification, but the requirement to reference the 
> records in the remote scenario still does not feel proportional.
> Does anyone have any comment on this, or a alternative interpretation?
