eGate system for Prague



Czech border police have implemented an EasyGo eGate system at Prague Ruzyne Airport.
The system – rolled out at the end of 2011 – was delivered by secunet, which acted as a subcontractor for the Czech company VÍTKOVICE IT Solutions.
During the first expansion stage, a single border control system is available at Prague airport.  secunet says Czech border police chose this new system because it significantly shortens waiting time for passengers entering the country, allows more passengers to cross the border and reduces the burden on border officers.
Anyone with an ePassport can use the biometric control procedure to enter the country. The system verifies the authenticity of the presented travel document based on optical and electronic security features. A camera in the gate records live images of the traveller and the system compares these to the photograph electronically stored in the passport. If this data matches and none of the additional checks reveal complications, the gate opens and the traveller is allowed to cross the border in a process that secunet claims takes less than 15 seconds.
secunet says it coordinated the commissioning of the eGate solution and provided the process control for the gate as well as the biomiddle software. It says biomiddle is a middleware that combines individual biometric components such as passport readers or cameras with client applications and background systems.
