Wacom Ink SDK for verification


Version 1.1 of the Wacom Ink SDK for veriification has been released.

Version 1.1 adds the ability to verify signatures whose data has gone through normalization.

As newer signature capture methods that have been introduced do not have a size specified, such as the capture method included within the Signature SDK for JavaScript, this solution simplifies the structure while maintaining data integrity.

The Wacom Ink SDK for verification offers a software-based method of digitally verifying handwritten eSignatures in real time. As such, it helps prevent fraud across a wide range of signature-centric workflows in financial services, healthcare and the public sector, and is far more accurate than visual checks by employees.

It uses and extends the existing verification tools, including:

  • Wacom's Static Signature Verification SDK, for processing scanned images
  • Wacom's Dynamic Signature Verification SDK which handles signatures captured in Wacom's proprietary FSS (Forensic Signature Store) format.

The SDK includes the tools necessary to connect an application such as a CRM system, which is used to store genuine examples of customer signatures, to the SDK’s signature verification engine. When a new handwritten eSignature is captured on a compatible device, the verification engine compares it with a set of genuine examples in real time.

It then generates a simple, highly accurate and instant acceptance or rejection message. This message is based on a comparison score generated by the verification engine of between 0 and 1, where 0 is no match at all, and 1 is an exact match.
