Second wave of biometric ID-documents


Following hot on the heels of biometric passports, the next wave of security documents is starting in earnest. One of these is the Residence Permit for non-EU/EEA nationals, which is focused on people staying for business, study or leisure for more than 3 months in Europe and coming from a state outside Europe and not being a member of the Visa-Waiver-Program of the EU.

This second wave increases demand in the security industry for certified security microcontroller chips, secure smart cards, readers and supporting infrastructure on top of the biometric Passport business. It underlines the continuing advance of contactless identification technology in the public sector. This article gives an overview of the application, the technology, the EU regulation, the EU roadmap and the implementations.
