vps Launches Secure Web-Based ePassport Management System

vps Video Print Systeme launches its state-of-the-art web-based ePassport management solution, Identity and Card Management System (icms). icms is designed to manage large populations of chip-based identity documents. vps' solution was developed to meet the needs of governments issuing next generation biometric-enabled electronic passports and has already been deployed for the electronic passport program of an Asian country. Completely web-based, icms can be securely accessed remotely via browser by authorized government officials to create new passports or manage a document's lifecycle. The solution is suited for governments that need to issue and invalidate electronic passports from multiple decentralized locations internationally, such as passport offices, police stations, embassies and consulates.

Heightened worldwide security concerns and the problem of counterfeit travel documents have led many governments, as well as the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), to call for the integration of digital biometric identifiers within passports. This enables live biometric data to be matched with data stored on the document to unequivocally link the passport to the rightful bearer. An open-architecture identity management solution, icms interfaces with all the hardware systems used for biometric data capture and serves as the information hub for all passport-related operations. vps' ID document management solution is also suitable for all other government-issued ID document programs such as national IDs, visas, driver's licenses and health cards.
