How DSL validates a user's identity?


DSL validates a user’s identity by allowing a user to use their CAC, email registration, remote-proof or in-person proof. Email Registration is the ability to use your unique email address on file and PII to register for a DSL account. In-person proofing requires a user to bring I-9 documents to a Veteran Affairs Regional Office or RAPIDS office only when issuing a new ID. Remote proofing is a multiple step process with various workflows to validate a person’s identity.
