X Infotech delivers solution to Liechtenstein for the issuing of SAC passports

X Infotech, a leading system integrator and developer of the MultiPerso solution for the issuance, management and verification of electronic ID documents, is collaborating with OeSD – the Austrian State Printing House that provides high security ID systems – to deliver a secure solution to the Migration and Passport Office of the Principality of Liechtenstein. The country will now be able to upgrade its previous BAC (Basic Access Control) passport issuance system to the newest standard, SAC (Supplemental Access Control). The newly implemented system will allow Liechtenstein to provide its citizens with SAC passports, which are best secured against fraud and other illegal activities. The SAC standard will be introduced in the European Union from the end of 2014 onwards.

After its successful collaboration with X Infotech in the implementation of the EAC passport issuance system in 2012, and following the latest ICAO requirements for secure documents, the government of Liechtenstein decided to migrate to SAC passports, thereby offering its citizens unparalleled security.

The Liechtenstein government required a simple and secure way to upgrade its existing system. Leveraging its experience in the deployment of complex eID document programs, X Infotech implemented a holistic solution capable of issuing SAC passports. The newly-implemented solution fully meets the latest security requirements, thereby allowing the government of Liechtenstein to pioneer the introduction of SAC passports whilst providing the highest level of security for the citizens of Liechtenstein.

“The opportunity to deliver MultiPerso technology to the citizens of Liechtenstein is extremely exciting,” says Sergey Yeliseyev, Business Development Director of government ID programs at X Infotech. “MultiPerso is an end-to-end solution for deploying eID document programs delivering valuable benefits, such as flexibility for superior post-issuance management as well as document verification at border control and future-proofing, enabling the technology to adapt to current and future business requirements.

“We are very proud to work on this project with X Infotech , which has proven itself to be a reliable partner, delivering o Liechtenstein the solution that is designed to bring state-of-the-art security to the citizens of Liechtenstein,” says Claudia Schwendimann, CEO of OeSD International. “This project reinforces OeSD’s long-standing partnership with X Infotech and we will be happy to continue our collaboration in future.”

Launched in summer 2014, issuance of SAC passports to Liechtenstein citizens has already begun.
