Biometrics and ePassports



The introduction of e-passports represents a profound technical accomplishment not only in the ID arena, but across several fields of technology. Biometrics, contactless chips, encryption and data security, security printing and optical authentication all present significant technical challenges in their own right, but the necessity to solve these problems in a singular solution with an age-old form factor is truly a daunting task.  

This excellent whitepaper by Aware, Inc. discusses e-passports and biometrics, particularly focusing on how lessons can be learnt from looking at established biometric systems. 

As well as this whitepaper, which may be downloaded below, there are three other high-quality white papers that can be downloaded direct from Aware’s website.
