Signature Verification

Definition - What does Signature Verification mean?

Signature verification is a technique used by banks, intelligence agencies and high-profile institutions to validate the identity of an individual. Signature verification is often used to compare signatures in bank offices and other branch capture. An image of a signature or a direct signature is fed into the signature verification software and compared to the signature image on file.

Techopedia explains Signature Verification

Signature verification is a type of software that compares signatures and checks for authenticity. This saves time and energy and helps to prevent human error during the signature process and lowers chances of fraud in the process of authentication. The software generates a confidence score against the signature to be verified. Too low of a confidence score means the signature is most likely a forgery.

Signature verification software has now become lightweight, fast, flexible and more reliable with multiple options for storage, multiple signatures against one ID and a huge database. It can automatically search for a signature within an image or file.
