Government ID Verifications

A Government Id Verification answers the question "Does the individual possess a genuine Government Issued Identity that supports their claim to a physical identity?"

Government Id Types

Government ID verifications have an id-class attribute. This is the type of ID associated with the verification. The following are the Persona ID class identifiers. Please note that some of these ID types are only relevant to certain locales, and so may not be relevant to all use cases.
