Oce introduces new security function for e-passports

Dutch document technologies firm Oce has unveiled a new security card reader function for e-passports that scans travel documents in color.

By CBR Staff Writer

The ID-Star CSR (Color Security Reader) 4054, according to Oce, includes technology for verifying the authenticity of documents and detecting forgeries through ultraviolet light, infrared and security laminate reading.

Oce said its new system adds a high speed RFID-reader module which is designed to capture all biometrical information stored on a chip in new generation e-passports, brought about by US government regulations which require some countries to add biometric identification to passports using RFID tags for citizens visiting without a visa. E-Passports and other travel documents containing RFID chips are expected to become compulsory worldwide in all major countries within the next 3-5 years.

In addition, the company has introduced an e-Passport Option, which enables the ID-Star CSR support all new security requirements in the field of biometrics according to the latest ICAO standards and recommendations.
