Global Address Verification and Phone Number Validation

October 8, 2021 by No Comments

The Global Address Verification API, or Global Address Validation API, allows you to validate the authentic global SSL certificate of your company. It enables you to check the digital signature of all requests made via your web server to the Internet. With this service, you will be able to check the validity of a website’s certificate and verify if it matches the one shown in the zone file.

The main use of the Global Address Verification API is for the web browsers and servers that support the international SSL certificates. They allow you to check if a website really has an international address. Today, most websites do have this kind of API. However, there are still those which do not have it. If your business does not have one, this is probably why you are having difficulties in securing your website and in verifying international addresses.

Global Address Verification API

With the introduction of the Global Address Verification API, companies can easily perform an international address validation with their server using the SIA Networking Tool (SIN), the postal address validation service (PostalNavi) and the US Postal Service (USPS) API. These three services work hand-in-hand to provide the best of customer authentication. These API’s can help you verify and validate business and international addresses, both, official and unregistered, and business domains, and international internet hosts. In addition, it helps you validate email addresses and verify the IP addresses as well. There are other details such as country codes and different data fields which are also validated by this API.

The International Standard Organisation (ISO) is responsible for creating and maintaining the set of quality standards for security, authentication and data security. This set of quality standards are known as ISO Security Standard 2021. One of the objectives of developing this standard was to standardize the way the business domain is associated with the address verification. To date, these methods have been incorporated into a number of International Standard Numbers (ISNs). These numbers are used in the business domain to associate the postal codes with international addresses and to validate the business domain and the address of the internet host.

The accuracy of these services depends on the facilities provided by the vendor offering the service. These facilities include performing calculations based on the number of digitized street addresses and international postal codes. In addition, the service performs checks based on the matching of the name of the domain owner with the corresponding address. Also, the service checks the numeric characters in the domain names and the numeric symbols in the international Standard Postal Codes. Finally, the verification is performed according to the rule named “Domain Name and Internet Protocol Address Verification”, or DNSVA.

This capability of the Global Address Verification API has been instrumental in making businesses achieve success by allowing them to verify addresses of their customers and vendors and by speeding up operations. The capability is not limited to the business domain. It can be used for National ID program. In this program, the local intelligence can be used to ensure that the addresses are authentic.

Conclusion

The main advantage of using the Global Address Verification API is that there is no need for manual intervention, unlike the process of verifying email addresses in the email server. Also, using the Global Address Verification API is cost effective as it consumes a lot less time than other address verification methods, which include email server and phone records verification. Apart from the use of the global domain and the address verification API, companies can also use the Google Maps to determine the location of the customer’s address using the Global Address Verification API.

The company’s website was recently accessed by the CIA’s Office of Technical Services as a part of a reverse search of a large database of emails and faxes. According to the office of the technical services, the search found that the number in the World Wide Web matched with an address of “CPT-apoA-PT-flix”. CPT stands for Country Prevented Delivery and United States Preventive Services. The office of the technical services further states that the data provided by the query was processed within a few minutes. This data supports the view that the CIA did validate that the phone number originated from the United States, according to the CIA’s own records.
