DESKO products for enhanced security and accuracy

According to the statutory principles, notarizations and certifications must state the date of birth as well as the place of residence and street address in addition to the name. If the surname is different, the maiden name must also be indicated. According to the current law, the notary must state in the certificate how he or she ascertained the identity of the person (photographed federal identity card, driver’s license). Further details such as issuing authority and date of issue are not required. However, it is recommended to provide the exact data as a way for notaries to easily prove that the ID card or other document was actually presented to them.

Our products support you as an attorney or notary in complying with the legally prescribed framework conditions and in reliably identifying your clients with industry-specific solutions. In addition, our scanners and other identification verification devices, as well as the corresponding authentication software, help you to optimize data transfer and processing. Maximum security, accelerated work processes, and better service for your clients are just some of the advantages our DESKO devices have to offer.

Know your Customer (KYC)

Secure Document Authentication

It is essential for lawyers and notaries to establish the identity of all parties. Whether you represent your clients in legal matters as a lawyer or whether you notarize wills, property sales or child recognitions as a notary, the identity of the persons present must be legally verified. A mere visual inspection of ID documents carries risks, because even a trained eye cannot distinguish a good forgery from a genuine ID card. DESKO scanners provide reliable security.

Innovative technologies of our hardware

Know your Customer (KYC) – depending on the model and equipment, DESKO products feature different technologies:

OCR Technology

for optical character recognition in machine-readable zones, such as on passports and ID cards.


for image captures with different light sources (such as visible light, infrared light, and UV light).

Barcode Scanners

for 1D and 2D barcodes on paper and displays; some international ID documents are barcoded.

Magnetic Strip Readers

for cards with magnetic strip, such as bank and credit cards.

RFID Modules

(Radio Frequency Identification) for reading biometric passports.

NFC Modules

(Near Field Communication), for example for reading employee cards.

As a second step, the data can be stored and further processed.
