Taking the title of SECURED TRAVELS we look at how we can enhance the integrity of the ePassport as a secured travel document. To investigate this further, we have articles from both Mühlbauer and Infineon Technologies on the subject.
The German travel document specialist Mühlbauer talks about the development of a secured ePassport by incorporating individual images into the document; Integrating different security features into pictures on the visa pages to combine both design and security. You can read more in their article ‘Luminous safety on visa pages’.
We also have a long read on ‘Coil-on-Module contactless for polycarbonate datapages’ from Infineon Technologies. The company has developed a package solution for highly robust, flexible and long-term reliable government ID and passport documents that will also allow for a thinner eDatapage called Coil on Module. Coil-on-Module also allows the option for the adding of additional security layers that can help guard against datapage manipulation.
Further in the magazine we also have a great article from Klaus Schmeh of cryptovision, titled ‘Post-Quantum Cryptography isn’t Rocket science – Or is it? ‘As Klaus himself writes;
Post-Quantum Cryptography is hard to understand for somebody who doesn’t have a mathematics degree. However, there are ways to explain it in a vivid and non-mathematical fashion.Klaus Schmeh, cryptovision AG
It’s an entertaining and interesting read and we encourage everyone to check it out.
