Optaglio focus on protecting chips in e-passports

Optaglio, the global leader in high-resolution security holograms, today announced a new solution focused on protecting chips in e-passports against removal and replacement. It is expected that high proportion of counterfeiting attacks will target chips with biometric data in foreseeable future.

 Personal and biometric data stored in a chip inside a document is a robust authentication tool. It supports all levels of machine reading up to automated e-gates. However, these chips are often targeted by counterfeiters, despite the fact that most document producers apply a kind of protection. “Our discussions with forensic laboratories experts confirm recent growth in attempts for chip replacement. Some five years ago, the attackers mostly tried to disable chips, but the e-gates force them to apply more sophisticated technologies,“ says Dr. Tomas Karensky, senior research manager in Optaglio.
