Security Document World - Day 2: Efficient, Secure and Effective Border Checkpoints
"My face is my passport"
Thanks to biometric face recognition, a paperless airport without passport and boarding pass, border crossing without manual control came true already at different airports all over the world.
No question the biometric technology is a big step not only with the background of security but also for a more comfortable travel experience.
What can be done already today and how realistic is the vision for the future.
The quality of biometric algorithms had raised into a level of an outstanding performance which is a perfect basis to use the face for a high secured identity check instead of ID documents and a manual control. Even 1:n identification combined with pre enrolment and multiple ID Touchpoints works with a false acceptance rate of < 0,01%.
All over all, the technology is ready for a biometric improvement in the different areas but where is still room for improvement?
- Clear statements to eliminate the fear that the data protection requirements have not been met.
- The usability needs a lot of improvement
- More technical equipment like gates, kiosks, etc. which is really optimized for biometric operation to reach a maximum of performance.
The presentation points out how to overcome these last issues.
