Entrust, 3M Collaborate to Provide End-to-End Secure ePassport Solution

"With the European Union's deadline for adopting EAC less than a year away, governments should begin implementing or evolving their ePassport strategies today," said Conner. "Now that advanced EAC ePassport technology can be implemented via an integrated, comprehensive platform, governments can expedite the process of providing stronger security for their passports, save money and instill trust among citizens."

Because of the stringent access controls of the second-generation ePassports, the PKI requirements are much higher, demanding a vendor that can provide scalability, reliability and unprecedented performance. It is this PKI foundation that helps ensure ePassports can be accessed at border stations with proper authentication, but not by criminals who may seek access to the data for purposes of manipulation or impersonation.

Created to mitigate passport forgery, first-generation ePassports use a Basic Access Control (BAC) RFID chip containing a simple biometric (usually a photo of the individual) along with the identity information of an individual duplicated on the paper document. Entrust provides the digital signatures on BAC ePassports that help prevent a cloned or modified passport, when it is properly processed, from being used to cross a border.

The ICAO targets global adoption of Phase 1 for ePassports -- commonly known as BAC -- by 2015. Initial ePassport projects typically standardize on BAC, which is in production in Europe and many parts of the world. Entrust provides security for the BAC ePassports of a number of top e-governments in the world, including the United States, United Kingdom, Slovenia, Singapore, Taiwan and New Zealand.

Entrust Authority 8.0 for ePassports, one of Entrust's proven PKI platforms, provides cryptographic architecture that enables trust of ePassports between countries. Modular and fully integrated, the Entrust Authority PKI portfolio is built on the foundation of Entrust Autho
