ICAO's 3rd MRTD report


ICAO has issued Volume 2, Number 1 of the MRTD Report. The issue focuses on two subjects relating to the ICAO Biometric Blueprint: the use of the face the primary biometric for interoperability of ePassports, and the launch of the ICAO Public Key Directory (PKD).

The ICAO PKD is the main global distribution point for public signing key certificates from all issuers of ePassports who are required to validate and authenticate such documents.

The idea is for inspectors of ePassports throughout the world to be able to access the PKD and use the public signing keys to validate ePassports with confidence.

As of middle of March this year the States participating in the PKD were: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
