CardLogix intros ID credential validation software for passports and MRTDs

November 25, 2015 - 

CardLogix announced it is now offering PassCheck, an ID credential validation software for passport and machine readable travel document (MRTD) verification.

PassCheck is an out-of-the-box product that securely validates an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) travel document.

The solution enables digital certificate matching traveler to issuing country, with full support for 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.

Additionally, PassCheck matches the presenter’s identity against the credential by displaying and verifying a range of biometric modalities (photo ID, faceprint, signature, fingerprint and iris) which are stored in the credential’s smart card chip

PassCheck also offers optional optical matching and verification. 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 verification.

The system logs all traveler entries and exits, as well as any image information associated with the security official operating the system.

There are several applications for PassCheck including border control, financial identification, and casino/gaming compliance.

The solution is available in two versions: PassCheck for Windows works with all supported readers while PassCheck for Unity is a handheld biometric capture and verification solution from Corvus Integration.

Other key features include an intuitive user interface, full support for 2- and 3-line MRZ decoding, optional optical authentication when used with readers that have that capability, optional sanctions lists and PEP compliance data, and biometric functions built to ANSI 378, ICAO 9303, NISTR 6529-A, ISO/IEC 19794-4.

Previously reported, CardLogix added biometrics to its microprocessor smart card development platform, M.O.S.T. Toolz.
