Pepper & Ink Technologies is offering customers mobile identity management which comes with document verification as well as biometrics with the help of advanced 2D barcode technology.

The tech firms’ ‘unique’ compression technology will store information in a 2D barcode. It will be combined with Tech5’s facial recognition that will allow customers to store their information in a pocket-friendly way. The company claims that additional hardware or smart card is not required and the information regarding the unique digital ID can be stored using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). The information stored in the Public Key Infrastructure will have demographic information, ID number and biometric template for face matching.
