KaNest®-ICC ICAO LDS e-Passport Test Suite selected by ICT Korea co., Ltd.
Integrated Circuit Technology Korea (ICTK) has selected the ICAO LDS e-Passport Test Suite developed by GALITT, for testing electronic Passports compliance against the official ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Test Plan (Tests For Application Protocol and Logical Data Structure, Version: 1.0 of Dec 18, 2006).
Gerard de MOURA, Managing Director of GALITT, stated: “We are proud of seeing ICTK selecting our implementation of the official ICAO Test Plan, thus recognizing the level of efficiency and of quality that we are bringing to the industry to face the continuing challenge of e-Government project deployment throughout the world, and specifically in the Asia Pacific region.”
This Test Suite simulates a passport reader device and thoroughly covers all Test Cases defined by ICAO in the pre-cited Test Plan. It is based on the improved KaNest®-ICC engine, thus providing the tester with the benefits of both the simple and user friendly “Tester View”, as well as the advanced and powerful “Engineer View”. KaNest®-ICC also allows this Test Suite to be used with any PC/SC contactless card reader. Besides, note that an optional optical reader can also be interfaced with KaNest®-ICC for easing the MRZ reading phase. Using the KaNest®-ICC Test Suite, ICTK intends to improve the efficiency of its evaluation process.
