Gemalto ePassports Show Industry-Leading Performance


Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, announces that its operating system integrated in the Sealys electronic passports, achieved the fastest reading capabilities in the independent Interoperability Tests conducted at the recent Security Document World Conference in London. Sealys ePassport Embedded Software is the latest generation of Gemalto's ICAO-compliant operating system. It meets the exacting standards of the Common Criteria EAL5+ augmented certification, which represents the highest known proven level of resistance to security attack available today for electronic travel documents. 

Gemalto's software was assessed in May alongside a range of ePassports from other companies, and the test demonstrated data throughput rates more than twice the industry average. 

Speed is key for issuing authorities as it means increased personalization and quality control throughput. Faster reading of electronic and biometric passports at border control points is also critical consideration for authorities seeking to process millions of passengers as quickly and efficiently as possible, without compromising security. 

"With international travel continuing to grow rapidly*, faster passport reading offers higher throughput capacity and greater convenience for passengers. It also makes biometric-enabled self-service stations a more attractive option for end users, further easing the burden on border control staff," said Youzec Kurp, Vice President of Government Programs at Gemalto. "The industry-leading performance of Sealys solutions is reflected in Gemalto providing products and services in over 30 national ePassport programs around the world."
