"Identification" or "unique identification" might be better for beginners.

Then I think


or just


(because we know what kind of factorisation takes place) is better

Except for the part about having to explain it to everyone.... :-)

Honestly, if it were me (assuming I even decided to fight that battle) I would also always say "commonly called 'deduplication'", or something similar, to signal most readers that I was, in fact, just using a specialized term to describe something they already know about.
