Science Media Partners, organizer of the security document conference and exhibition Security Document World (SDW) 2013, is putting together the next phase of global e-passport interoperability testing at a special event to be held alongside the SDW show on May 21 – 23 in London.
Sponsored by NXP, the interoperability tests – SDW InterOp 2013 – will be focused on the new Supplemental Access Control (SAC) mechanism, which is scheduled to be implemented on travel documents after December 2014 in order to safeguard e-passport security. To perform the technical aspects of the tests, Science Media Partners has engaged the independent services of secunet Security Networks AG, a German supplier of IT security.
secunet will operate all technical aspects of the InterOp test including evaluating SAC document conformity according to the recently updated test specification BSI TR-03105 Part 3.2; document behavior in a typical document verification process and crossover behavior between provided document samples and verification systems.
The SDW InterOp 2013 event is open to all document manufacturers, verification system providers and inlay/chip operating system companies. Observers may also attend.
