Does the Accuant Passport scanner authenticate IDs/assist in identifying fake ids?

The passport scanner with RFID authenticates the passport by reading the MRZ which unlocks the RFID chip so that we can make the comparison between data on the passport and the data carried in the chip. So the first step is the MRZ has not been compromised, then the chip is unlocked and then final validation through the data comparison.
Licenses using the front OCR and back bar code provides a level of validation as we can compare the data from both of those sources (also mag strip but that's separate from the passport unit). This may not be ideal from a workflow perspective as the operator needs to flip the ID however, if the concern is validation the extra few seconds it takes to flip the ID should be a non-issue. For passports the only way to really validate it is with the RFID capability.
