Abstract

We propose an authentication methodology that combines multimodal biometrics and cryptographic mechanisms for border control applications. We accommodate faces and fingerprints without a mandatory requirement of (tamperresistant) smart-card-level devices on e-passports for easier deployment. It is even allowable to imprint (publicly readable) bar codes on the passports. Additionally, we present a solution based on the certification and key management method to control the validity of passports within the current Public-Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology paradigm.
