The guidance has been split into 2 parts. The identity profiles are now separate from the rest of the guidance to make it easier for users to find the profile they need.
New identity profiles have been added to give users more choice in how they combine the different parts of the identity checking process. Some of the ‘very high’ profiles have been removed as very few organisations or services would actually need that much confidence in someone’s identity.
The way ‘activity’ checks are scored has changed. There’s no longer a requirement to know if the type of interactions are typical of that person. These checks are also now called ‘activity history’ checks.
Different quality knowledge-based verification (KBV) challenges can now be combined to get a score of 2 for ‘verification’. This means there are more ways to use KBV to link a person to a claimed identity.

The guidance has been given a more active title.
The ‘Get evidence of the claimed identity’ section now includes some information about what to do if a piece of evidence contains transposition errors.
The ‘Check the evidence is genuine or valid’ section now explains that digital evidence will always get at least a score of 2.
In the same section, the requirements needed for evidence that contains digital information have been updated to take into account things like information found in databases.
The guidance about identity profiles has been updated to clarify that you do not need to add up the individual scores within a profile to come up with a total.
17 December 2019
The definition of valid has been updated in the ‘Check the evidence is genuine or valid’ section. Checking a piece of evidence has not expired, cancelled or been reported as lost or stolen used to be things you could do as part of the ‘valid’ check. These are now listed as separate checks. It’s now clearer that you do not need to check if a piece of evidence has been cancelled, lost or stolen to get a score of 2 or 3.
15 April 2019
The guidance has been rewritten in plain English so it’s easy for both technical and non-technical users to understand.
The annexes from the previous version have been removed and the information from them added to the guidance.
Examples of how checks can be done have been added throughout the guidance.
Information about checking someone’s biometric information has been added to the ‘Check that the identity belongs to the person who’s claiming it (‘verification’)’ section.
The ‘Identity profiles’ section has been expanded. The new identity profiles will make it easier to check the identities of users who do not have much evidence of their identity.
