ePassport PKI is critical to government security
ePassport PKI plays a significant role today for governments seeking greater border control and more stringent national security. ePassport PKI is the trust infrastructure that allows travel documents to be machine-readable in a secure fashion, with a chip that stores information that can be verified against the data printed on the document itself.
Interoperability of ePassports has been facilitated by global standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization, which requires that ePassport PKI provide the security and integrity essential for protecting the sensitive personal information that is embedded in the chip. For governments seeking the most effective and innovative ePassport PKI solutions, Entrust is the vendor of choice.
Entrust - a trusted provider of ePassport PKI
Entrust was an innovator in the development of first-generation ePassport PKI, which was created to mitigate passport forgery. Today, Entrust is instrumental in the development of second- generation ePassport PKI based on Extended Access Control (EAC). EAC provides the necessary security and verification capabilities to enable governments to use biometrics, such as a fingerprint or a retinal scan, which are more secure and more difficult to impersonate.
ePassport PKI with EAC also enables the encryption of contents on the embedded chip so that even if a biometric can be impersonated, a criminal will be denied access. PKI requirements are much higher in EAC ePassports because of the stringent access controls, and ePassport PKI vendors must demonstrate greater scalability and flexibility as well as unprecedented performance. Entrust meets these requirements with a product portfolio that is unmatched in the industry. With a long history of providing security solutions to governments, Entrust is the first choice of many governments seeking to implement the most effective ePassport PKI solution.
