IDU (REST) API Overview

LexisNexis® IDU® offers a flexible approach to identity management, helping you confirm identities online, comply with anti-money laundering requirements and protect your business from the threat of fraud.

IDU's suite of APIs allows you to screen individuals against a bespoke scorecard tailored to your risk appetite - helping to verify and authenticate recognised identity documents and identify potential risks.

IDU has a variety of applications including fraud prevention, AML compliance and customer due diligence.


IDU® utilises the LexisNexis Risk Solutions Single Sign On (SSO) API as its authentication method.
