What is credential analysis?

A process by which a principal’s government-issued identification card is validated. The process requires a third party to use technology to review the security features on an ID and confirm it is not fraudulent. As part of the remote online notarization process, the third party provides the result of the authenticity test to the notary, enabling the notary to visually compare the credentials used with the principal, who personally appears before the notary via audio/visual technology.
