Entrust Expands Relationship with Slovenia, Implements Second-generation ePassport Solution
Date:9/9/2008

sure criminals cannot impersonate a genuine document," said Entrust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. "Powering the security foundation that undergirds EAC passports -- ensuring the PKI is scalable, reliable and has the performance required to manage the mass exchange of digital certificates -- is the key role Entrust plays."

Much like Slovenia, countries are now beginning to evolve their ePassport programs to a second-generation framework that includes capabilities for EAC. European Union (EU) member countries will be required to add biometric data to machine-readable travel documents (MRTDs) with the information protected through the EAC scheme by June 2009.

"Slovenia recognized the importance of leveraging a proven EAC ePassport solution that is both scalable and reliable," said Neill Duff, Snr. VP and General Manager of EMEA for Entrust. "As a proponent of e-government capabilities, Slovenia continues to partner with Entrust to help prevent criminal organizations from accessing and using biometric information on ePassports to illegally cross borders."

The terrorists of 9/11 used compromised passports to cross borders while traveling into the United States. The result was the need for a more secure passport. For moving to electronic passports, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) touted two primary goals: to ensure a forged or modified passport could not be used to cross borders; to prevent a criminal from impersonating the identity contained on a genuine passport.

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. The Entrust solution provides the digital signatures on BAC ePassports that prevent a cloned or modified passport, when it is properly processed, from being used to cross a b
