Machine readable travel documents


Basing on the Document 9303 by the ICAO (ICAO 2004) RFID microcontrollers are used in the European passport (also called ePass) to store personal data including biometrics. The use of RFID in machine readable travel documents (MRTDs) such as the ePass was described and analysed by Meints and Hansen (2006). Currently many countries such as France (Meints, Hansen 2006) and Germany (Engel 2006) plan to use RFID in combination with biometrics for national ID cards as well. Currently an improved access control for data on RFID tags, the so called extended access control (EAC) is in the specification process. Draft versions of these specifications are available at the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
