Some events (like business seminars, fairs, football games or concerts) require attendees to register for tickets with their name or they even require more personal details (like age, residence or similar). Currently most online ticket selling platforms do not have any identity verification whatsoever – the attendee can register to the event using someone else’s personal details – so the event organizer has to manually re-check everyone’s identity at the actual event entrance.
By using Identyum Web API on an online ticket purchasing site, ticket sellers can be sure that they are issuing the ticket to the actual person who is purchasing it. On the other side, the ticket buyer simply gives her consent to share her digital identity data with the ticket seller, and the system records that the ticket is issued to a verified identity. This way, the attendee does not need to show any ID documents at the event entrance – she simply authenticates herself with her smartphone to identify herself, and the system recognizes that this is the person that has a valid ticket and lets her in. No need for bouncers to check tickets and compare validity with ID documents, while at the same time attendees keep full control of their personal data!
