e-Passport and Government ID 2018-05-01T07:18:12+00:00

e-Passport Solution

The continuous increase of international traveler volumes and the striving for unlimited mobility cause new challenges in the security sector. Global threats induced by criminality and terrorism, illegal migration, document fraud as well as the risk of identity theft in the digital age further add to this development. It is our belief that these challenges can only be met by establishing robust identification systems. The reliable identification and verification of travel documents and people is the key to security on a global scale.

Although there is no one model for providing travel documents, we are convinced that by delivering cost-effective but robust identity credentials, and by offering an approach that ensures the efficient implementation of interoperable systems, we produce huge advantages for governments and citizens.

Tailormade Solutions

We are your competent partner providing a comprehensive and unrivaled ePassport solution, driven by the motivation to find the individual and flexible solution, which perfectly meets your demands. Regardless of the modalities to achieve it, we ensure governments around the world.

Our specialists accompany and consult you throughout the entire project duration:

  • Conception
  • Data Enrollment
  • Data Management
  • Production
  • Personalization
  • Verification

We are the only solution provider worldwide who develops all components in-house and is simultaneously able to deliver the complete portfolio of technologies, processes and materials recently on the market. Thus you benefit from a more open consultation for the choice of your solution components, maximum individualization and our speed during the implementation of our harmonized systems.

By continuously improving and enhancing existing technologies and security features, we contribute to worldwide security now and in the future. We demand from ourselves to be always a few steps ahead of any counterfeiters.


International Standards and Interoperability

International standards and recommendations established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) serve as our guidelines when developing our ePassport solutions:

  • Security design and print of the documents
  • Enhanced protection against counterfeiting attempts
  • Continuously enhanced personalization technologies and processes
  • Biometric authentication
  • Logical Data Structure (LDS) for the securing of biometric data
  • Supplemental Access Control (SAC)
  • Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for electronic travel documents


Worldwide Replacement

Our flexible solutions moreover enable the replacement of stolen or lost documents abroad. The secure transfer of data on a global level is thereby essential. Embassies or consulates act as application and issuance centers for electronic passports.


Government ID Solution

National Identification (ID) is more than a convenience; it is the backbone of a nation, an indispensable tool to identify residents and to ensure electoral participation, educational opportunities, financial services, health and social welfare benefits, as well as economic development. Today’s ID solutions provide people with a better access to public and private services, while giving governments the opportunity to listen and to improve the lives of their citizens.

The role of robust identification systems and their importance to development can’t be overestimated. Reliable identification and verification of documents and people is the key to security, to public and social services, and to public and private communication.

Security, Individuality & Flexibility

We believe that it is vital to provide citizens with cost-effective but robust identity credentials. You are therefore in need of a partner who recognizes the requirements, potentials and challenges of 21stcentury ID systems, who creates trust and at the same time offers you the individuality and flexibility you need.

As the only solution provider worldwide we can offer you the complete portfolio of technologies, processes and materials recently on the market. Our great advantage is that we don’t have to purchase any technologies and integrate them in a complete solution. Due to the hardware and software components all being developed and manufactured in-house, our solutions are not hindered by delays, caused by interface problems or missing compatibility. We ensure the effective and efficient implementation of our interdependent systems – both across public and private sector level – thus driving the technology costs down and enhancing service delivery across boundaries. We are no system-integrator but consider ourselves as a complete solution provider from one source.

Since we are not limited to any technologies, we are at liberty to offer you the solution perfectly tailored to your demand. We focus on finding the ideal solution for you and your requirements. Our flexibility enables us to implement the solution within shortest time. We deliver everything you need, when you need it.
