Secure MobilePass device for biometric authentication

AIT developed a dedicated, secure and mobile device for Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) to use in biometric identification and for inspecting travel documents on the move. A typical application is border control. The platform combines leading edge technologies, such as contactless fingerprint scanning, facial verification, optical passport scanning and passport chip reading. In contrast to existing mobile solutions, the hardware itself is a trusted platform module with encrypted operating systems and applications. 3G/4G, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity ensures interoperability with other IT systems. The developed system is based on a MPSoC design (MultiProcessorSystemOnChip), paving the way for future applications including iris scanning.
