ComplyCube Unveils Enhanced ID Document Security with Advanced Liveness Detection



  • ComplyCube introduces a new ID Liveness Layer to enhance its Document Authentication service and combat ‘screen replay attacks’
  • The latest technology integrates seamlessly with existing biometric checks and uses 3D face maps for advanced Presentation Attack Detection (PAD)
  • Document Liveness Detection is now available to all users across multiple channels as part of the Document Checking Service
  • Preliminary trials indicate that the new feature has successfully prevented more than 80% of fraudulent attempts

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Global KYC and IDV platform, ComplyCube, has enhanced its Document Authentication service to counter ‘screen replay attacks’, where scammers attempt to use IDs displayed on digital screens for illicit access to products and services.

The announcement arrives in the context of a rise in identity fraud, propelled by advancements in AI-powered image manipulation tools. In the US, an identity theft case occurs every 22 seconds, while in the UK, identity fraud accounts for almost 70% of the cases filed with the National Fraud Database (NFD). These startling statistics highlight the urgent need to improve ID verification services as a crucial measure in fighting the unprecedented surge in identity fraud cases.

Complementing its existing offering of passive (still photos) and active (action based) biometric checks, the ID Liveness Layer uses state-of-the-art Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) technology. Employing 3D face maps and cutting-edge techniques, it recognizes screen photos, printed photo attacks, video-replay assaults, and 3D mask attacks.

“Over the years, we have been committed to researching, developing, and deploying AI models for accurate and unbiased customer presence detection in images and videos. This has positioned us as a trusted liveness detection service provider, heavily depended on by some of the world’s biggest organizations,” notes Harry Varatharasan, Chief Data Scientist of ComplyCube. “We’ve now extended our AI platform to detect liveness in ID documents, further enhancing the level of identity assurance provided by our award-winning platform.”

Document Liveness Detection is fully integrated into the Document Checking Service. Consequently, it is accessible to users across multiple channels, such as SDKs, no-code solutions, and the outreach platform. By adopting this feature, users can ascertain the legitimacy and rightful ownership of their customers’ identity documents throughout onboarding. Trial runs with select businesses have shown this feature’s effectiveness, preventing over 80% of fraudulent attempts.

“The identification of these counterfeit documents typically comes at a later stage in the customer lifecycle, which, regrettably, can severely tarnish a company’s reputation and trigger penalties and intricate internal procedures,” remarks Mohamed Alsalehi, Chief Technology Officer at ComplyCube. “While some alternative solutions offer selfie-based liveness detection, their effectiveness concerning ID documents leaves much to be desired. We are confident that our latest innovation will set a new benchmark for the industry.”


ComplyCube blends thousands of data points, a sophisticated Machine Learning (ML) stack, and expert human reviewers to set a new AML and KYC compliance standard. Its globally compliant product suite includes Biometric Verification, Document Authentication, Address Verification, AML Screening, and Multi-Bureau Checks.

Legal Luminary Sarah Brennan Champions Pioneering Crypto Regulation Approaches




Sarah Brennan, an accomplished figure in corporate and securities law, serves as General Counsel at Delphi Ventures, focusing on investments in the Web3 space. With over 14 years of experience in securities law and a deep involvement in digital assets since 2017, Brennan also co-leads LeXpunK, a collective dedicated to establishing legal frameworks for decentralized digital communities.

In a candid interview with a prominent cryptocurrency news outlet, Brennan discussed various critical topics. She addressed the emergence of crypto super PACs, funded significantly by major firms like Ripple and Circle, to counter strict SEC regulations. Brennan viewed the SAB 121 bill, backed by the US administration, as potentially isolating the crypto community from broader financial integration.

While acknowledging the influence of centralized entities in advocating for crypto interests, Brennan cautioned against replicating traditional financial hierarchies within the crypto sphere, which contradicts its revolutionary ethos. She expressed concerns about monopolistic scenarios that could dominate the crypto landscape, exerting excessive control over essential industry components and traditional financial operations.

Regarding regulatory challenges, Brennan advocated for tailored regulations to manage systemic risks posed by large centralized crypto institutions. She criticized the current regulatory opacity and inconsistency, which she believes have fostered suboptimal business practices. Through LeXpunK, Brennan endeavors to pioneer experimental legal structures that could redefine regulatory compliance for token issuances, though reception from policymakers has been lukewarm.


Looking ahead, Brennan emphasizes the need for proactive regulatory approaches using antitrust measures to prevent crypto monopolies, promote decentralization, and target bad actors. However, she highlighted the persistent communication gap between crypto-literate legal advocates and hesitant regulators as a significant obstacle.

Brennan continues to drive forward her mission through new advocacy platforms aimed at shaping the future of cryptographic regulation, navigating complexities to ensure balanced and effective regulatory frameworks in the evolving crypto landscape.

Italy Ramps Up Crypto Oversight in Line with MiCA




Italy is preparing to strengthen its oversight of cryptocurrency markets to align with the European Union’s Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulatory framework. This initiative, initially enacted in 2022, aims to impose stricter monitoring of digital asset markets, particularly targeting insider trading and market manipulation. Under the new decree, fines ranging from 5,000 to 5 million euros ($5,400 to $5.4 million) will be imposed based on the severity of violations, reinforcing compliance and market integrity.

For blockchain firms and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, MiCA presents significant challenges. These entities must decide between fully decentralizing their networks or complying with MiCA’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. Fully decentralized networks are exempt from reporting requirements but risk non-compliance if they employ foundations or intermediaries moderating communities.

Centralized exchanges like Binance are adapting to MiCA by categorizing stablecoins as authorized or unauthorized, aligning with regulatory requirements without delisting these assets from spot markets. Uphold has similarly adjusted by delisting certain stablecoins for compliance purposes.

Despite regulatory pressures, experts are optimistic about stablecoins’ future. Figures like Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, predict stablecoins could represent 10% of the money supply within a decade. They anticipate widespread adoption driven by benefits such as financial inclusion, lower remittance costs, and seamless cross-border commerce via public blockchains.


This regulatory framework underscores the transformative potential of stablecoins and blockchain technology within the global financial system.
