Smart card and related software provider CardLogix has revealed new ID credential validation software for ePassports and Machine Readable Travel Document (MRTDs).Called PassCheck, CardLogix describes the solution as a simple, out -of- the-box, ICAO-focused product that solves secure identity challenges.PassCheck validates ICAO travel document with these features: digital certificate matching the traveller to the issuing country, checking against a wide range of supported biometric modalities, and with optional optical matching and verification.The first feature is possible because the software fully supports ePassport PKI Validation. PassCheck reads credential data from an Identity Credential chip, decrypts it, and then validates the credential's data and signature with the stored Digital Certificate against the ICAO Public Key Directory (Published certificates for each country).PassCheck also matches the presenter's identity against the credential by displaying and verifying a biometric modality. Support currently includes photo ids, faceprint, signature, fingerprints, and irises, which are stored in the credential's smart card chipFinally, working with scanners and readers from Access IS and many others, PassCheck optically scans a credential, and then uses key forensic tests to compare the image against known exemplars for verificationTraveller entries and exits are logged, as well as image information correlated to the control person that runs the system.Applications include border control, financial ID, and casino/gaming compliance. Two versions are available: PassCheck for Windows which works with all supported readers/scanners, and PassCheck for Unity. Unity is a Handheld Biometric Capture and Verification solution from Corvus Integration.Note: CardLogix will be exhibiting at SDW 2016, 10-12 May, London, UK. SDW is a world-leading conference and exhibition event providing a global showcase for next-generation human identity solutions, focusing on intrinsic document security and on the new cutting-edge secure infrastructure now required to produce and use these advanced documents in live situations. http://www.sdw2016.com
