This White Paper details the results of the OIX Activity History Alpha Project.
The project was created to examine the usefulness of new sources of activity data in order to assist the Verify identity providers’ (“IDPs”) approval process for registering new GOV.UK Verify (henceforth “Verify”) users. Activity history is an important component of the Verify identity proofing process. Mobile phone activity history has been identified as a particularly useful attribute.
The results of the project will be significant opportunities for IDPs to increase the scores they calculate for new users and to therefore increase the percentage of registrants who successfully obtain a Verify account.
