Secunet biometric border gates being deployed at Hungary’s busiest airports
Secunet announced it will, as a subcontractor to ARH Inc, deliver 14 secunet easygates featuring document authentication and biometric verification to be installed at arrivals and departures at Liszt Ferenc International Airport in Budapest and Debrecen International Airport.
ARH is the prime contractor for the delivery and installation of the Automated Border Control gates. The project is financed by the Home Affairs Fund of the European Union. Secunet easygates are part of the secunet border gears product portfolio and are expected to significantly improve border control given the steady increase of travellers at Hungary’s busiest airports.
The ABC solution includes the Combo Smart reader by ARH for optical and electronic document reading and authentication, the secunet biometric unit to perform facial recognition as well as its central server system infrastructure that offers the capability to connect to police background systems. Secunet also provides the monitoring application that allows the border police to monitor multiple eGates.
The eGate system also features: tailgating prevention via cameras and sensors; identity verification of the passport holder by comparing live face camera image with facial image stored on the passport chip; cross-checking of blacklists from national and international databases, and; presentation attack detection.
