Now it is that easy

The iDovos® ID fraud prevention system, developed by Mantissa Corporation, protects identity by giving you pinpoint control over when and how your identity is used. Credit and debit cards, bank and brokerage accounts, personal credit, and even identification numbers and official documentation can all be protected with the ease and simplicity of “flipping a switch.”


Government Agencies Interface Overview

Give customers the keys; it’s their turn to drive.

It’s human nature to want to chart your own course; everyone wants to be in charge of their own destiny. Unfortunately, control is no longer the norm when it comes to identity. ID theft and ID fraud are growing at an unprecedented rate. Especially hard hit, the U.S. economy has suffered billions of dollars in damage. Estimates indicate that ID theft and fraud will exceed the value of the illegal drug trade.

iDovos began as a simple idea in response to the question “If I own my identity why can’t I control how it is used?”. The answer, of course, is that you can.

We invite you to join the revolution in personal identity management.

iDovos™ is an ID theft/fraud prevention service that employs a patent pending technology called Positive Identity Control™ (PIC).

PIC is unique in that it gives the individual control over use of their identity and identity assets. PIC answers the following question for every transaction which relies on identity use:

Has the identity owner given consent for their identity to be used at this point in time and for this specific identity asset?

Government agencies overseeing Social Security, Immigration, taxation agencies, licensing divisions, passport travel authorizations, etc., process enormous volumes of critical security data each day. These systems typically employ an user ID and password as a preliminary means of access authorization. Many of these agencies also employ n-factor authorization systems for additional authorization assurance.

PIC integration provides the authorizing agency with an individual’s intent (state) at a specific point in time for each protected account. If identity use is not desired, the authorization should be denied without further evaluation. Otherwise, the authorization process proceeds in a normal manner.

Although this overview focuses on usage-level protection, an “identity asset” can be any identity feature you want to permit the individual to protect. For instance an identity owner could protect the active usage of their passport information for travel or identification during time-based periods in which they do not have travel plans. However, it is possible to differentiate and protect additional features of the account relationship. A good example of an account feature you might want to protect as a separate identity asset is the dissemination of information to secure other identity documents such as a VISA, driver’s license, ownership of property, etc.

By integrating iDovos as a personal ID management option, a government agency provides technology that revolutionizes the way in which identity is managed, and whose fundamental concept is as simple and effective as that of a light switch. iDovos sends a clear message that the asset-agency is sincerely dedicated to providing the most failsafe means possible of preventing identity fraud.

Essentially, any government agency that provides an identity-based asset will benefit from offering iDovos. 

With iDovos the identity owner exerts pinpoint time-based control over the accessibility of his or her own assets, creating an airtight layer of security.
