Use the Secure ID Verification Simulator

Develop and test using the simulator before transitioning to live data.

When your Sudo Platform instance is configured and Secure ID Verification is enabled, the service may be enabled in one of two modes, each of which will verify identities using different data sources.

Verification Mode

Description

Simulator

Well-known inputs of synthetic identity data produce predictable results.

Live

All identity verification is performed using live data sources. In this mode, there is no simulator data.

Simulator Mode

In simulator mode, different combinations of known data can be provided to the verifyIdentity API to extract specific results. The table below lists the data that can be provided to the Secure ID Verification service operating in simulator mode.

Almost all of these tests can also be run where the test data omits the city and state, i.e. sets them to undefined. The exception is the invalid state test case.

All other combinations of input data will result in identity verification failure.

Live Mode

A Secure ID Verification instance will be switched to live mode after review with the Sudo Platform team, ensuring that the data protection responsibilities shared between you and the Sudo Platform are clear and understood.The Secure ID Verification service will initially be configured in Simulator mode so that familiarisation and development can commence.
