It all started in 2011 with 3 ingredients: the need to ensure at low cost the reliability of information on paper documents, a strong public leadership to find a solution, and a small company with a big idea!
Before the Otentik VDS, there was the 2D-Doc VDS
New technologies and deceits reduce the barrier to entry for counterfeiting and fraud. This is especially true for paper documents, and it can become extremely problematic when these documents are used to issue passports.
Leaders at France’s Ministère de l’Intérieur (Interior Ministry) and l’Agence Nationale des Titres Sécurisés (ANTS) decided to tackle this problem and financed a solution that provided highly reliable information and that was low cost to operate : the 2D-Doc. In operation since 2012, it is used in France to deliver proof of addresses across multiple industries, notably telecom, energy and finance.
The Otentik VDS is an important evolution based on 2D-Doc, and the Otentik network supports both VDS technologies.
