X Infotech succeeds in deployment of another new generation ePassports project

X Infotech , the leading system integrator and supplier of premium solutions for issuance, verification and management of electronic ID documents, was again invited into partnership with Austrian State Printing House (OeSD) to implement a turnkey solution for the issuance of new generation electronic passports for the customer, who wants to remain confidential.

X Infotech  has strengthened its expertise with the successful deployment of turnkey solutions for different countries worldwide, including biometric enrolment, electronic passport personalization, PKI and border control solutions.

For the given project, X Infotech  supplies the end-to-end MultiPerso solution dedicated to BAC electronic passports issuance. This turnkey solution offers many facilities for electronic passport personalization and includes the ICAO compliant, advanced MultiPerso components for Data Preparation, Chip Encoding, Key Management System, ICAO PKI infrastructure and Production Management. In order to ensure that personalization has been completed smoothly and the visual data corresponds to the data written on the chip, X Infotech  also deploys a Quality Assurance feature which is fully integrated into the production management system thus ensuring a 100% guarantee on accurately-issued e-passports.

To enhance the security level of new e-passports, X Infotech provides a highly secure Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), deploying MultiPerso Document Signer and Country Signing Certification Authority components. The high quality solution ensures that data is securely stored on the chip, being both protected and digitally signed.

“X Infotech  is particularly proud to be selected together with OeSD to provide the state-of-the-art ePassport system. The new-generation ePassport will increase the level of border and citizen data protection and boost economic growth.” said Aleksandrs Popovs, Technical Director X Infotech . “The new project further reinforces our technical know-how and experience as well as joint leadership with Austrian State Printing House (OeSD) with whom we implemented three ePassport projects in the last 12 months alone.”

“This project is one of those good examples of how industry players can combine forces to build a better and more secure future. X Infotech  was invited to join this project based on the established partnership and trust between two leading solution providers.” said Claudia Schwendimann, CEO at OeSD International. “Working together, we are determined to achieve a more efficient and future-proof platform for the ePassport issuance at our new customer’s site.”
