RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 18, 2024--

The world’s most comprehensive identity document template database, owned and maintained by Regula, a global developer of forensic devices and identity verification solutions, has just become even bigger. It is reaching14,000 ID templates from 250 countries and territories. With the latest IDs added, including the first vertical ID card from Iceland made in accordance with thenew ICAO specifications, this database is a valuable asset in any identity verification (IDV) process.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20240618808897/en/

Regula develops and supports two document collections—the Information Reference System (IRS) and the ID template database—which serve different purposes.

The IRS is a comprehensive digital collection of meticulously scrutinized images of documents, including passports, ID cards, visas, banknotes, coins, driver's licenses, and vehicle documents —and their security features—from 225 countries and territories. This database aids border control officers, forensic experts, and other specialists in verifying a document's authenticity through manual examination.

In contrast, the ID template database is specifically designed to facilitate automated document verification using software solutions. Its latest update encompassed a variety of recently issued identity documents, including those containing dynamic security features, such as holograms, optically variable inks (OVIs), lenticular images, etc. The growing tendency to incorporate such security features in IDs is understandable: it is done to make counterfeiting a much harder task. However, it makes sense only if this dynamic protection can be properly verified through so-called liveness checks, even in remote scenarios.

Regula’s ID template database contains detailed descriptions of security features in a document, including dynamic ones: holograms, kinegrams, OVIs, etc. This, combined with advancements in Regula Document Reader SDK’s capabilities, makes it possible to check IDs online with the same precision that was previously attainable only in on-site scenarios.

Regula’s solution uses ID templates and employs advanced algorithms to analyze the presence of dynamic security features and images in documents, along with their exact location, content, and the physical aspects that make them dynamic: changing colors, images, and so on. This liveness-centered approach helps effectively prevent various types of fraud, such as printed photo attacks and screen replay attacks.

“By constantly adding all types of identity documents in circulation around the world, including those that have been recently issued, we not only empower our customers with up-to-date information but also help them and ourselves keep pace with the ever-evolving document security industry. The knowledge of new ID features allows us to enhance our software capabilities, making fraud prevention even more efficient,” says Ihar Kliashchou, Chief Technology Officer at Regula.

Among the identity documents added to Regula’s database this year are IDs issued in late 2023 or early 2024. To see the full list, please follow the link.

BUTLER, Pa. (AP) — Donald Trump's campaign said in a statement that he was “fine” after being whisked off the stage at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania after apparent gunshots rang through the crowd.

“President Trump thanks law enforcement and first responders for their quick action during this heinous act,” spokesman Steven Cheung said in a statement. “He is fine and is being checked out at a local medical facility. More details will follow.”

The Secret Service said in a statement that “the former President is safe.”

The former president and presumptive Republican nominee was showing off a chart of border crossing numbers during his last rally before the Republican National Convention opens Monday when bangs started ringing through the crowd. Trump could be seen reaching with his right hand toward his face. There appeared to be blood on his face.

He quickly ducked behind the riser as agents from his protective detail rushed the stage and screams were heard in the crowd of several thousand people. The bangs continued as agents tended to him on stage.

The crowd cheered as he got back up and pumped his fist.

Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Dave McCormick, who was sitting in the front row, told Politico that it appeared someone behind him was shot.

“All the sudden shots started to crack, someone behind me appears to have been shot,” McCormick said. “There’s lots of blood, and then the Secret Service were all over President Trump.”

His motorcade has since left the venue.

Police began vacating the fairgrounds shortly after Trump left the stage in what local officers described as a crime scene.

President Joe Biden was briefed on the incident, the White House said. He received an updated briefing from Kimberly Cheatle, the director of the United States Secretary Service, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and White House homeland security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall.

Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., posted a photo on X of Trump, his fist raised and his face bloody in front of an American flag, with the words: “He’ll never stop fighting to Save America."

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Sen. JD Vance, the three men on Trump's shortlist for vice president, all quickly sent out statements expressing concern for the former president, with Rubio sharing an image taken as Trump was escorted off stage with his fist in the air and a streak of blood on his face along with the words “God protected President Trump.”

Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, said in a statement on X that he had been briefed on the situation and Pennsylvania state police were on hand at the rally site.

“Violence targeted at any political party or political leader is absolutely unacceptable. It has no place in Pennsylvania or the United States,” he said.
