secunet and Veridos presenting advanced border control solutions at Passenger Terminal Expo


secunet and Veridos will be jointly demonstrating “Made in Germany” smart border control solutions at this week’s Passenger Terminal Expo in Cologne.

The companies will be showcasing automated border control solutions that make the process as secure, convenient and efficient as possible for travellers, airport operators and enforcement staff.

The solutions build on the EasyPASS project at German airports. EasyPASS is implemented by partners Bundesdruckerei and secunet Security Networks. Veridos is a joint venture between Giesecke & Devrient and Bundesdruckerei.

The automated border control system being showcased in Cologne consists of a pre-check kiosk and eGate.

Travellers must have their travel documents checked first at the pre-check kiosk and if they have a valid electronic identification document and meet the other requirements, generally they may use the eGates for passing through border control. With this system, border police can steer passenger flows according to traffic volume and the security situation.

At the eGate travel documents are checked for authenticity and the electronic picture of the traveller’s face is read from the document and compared to the live picture taken in the eGate. Border police follow this automated process via a monitor and can provide support where necessary.

At Passenger Terminal Expo, secunet and Veridos will also showcase a Bundesdruckerei and Veridos BCS server for the central configuration and management of data flows and the monitoring application, which enables officials to oversee the control process.

The secunet bocoa intuitive border control interface will also be presented alongside the automated border control solution. This interface provides the responsible officials with an overview – mobile and fixed – of all relevant data for checking travellers.
