IDeal Pass™: the fastest certified e-passport in the market

Sagem Sécurité unveils new eTravel solution at CARTES 2009

Paris, CARTES & IDentification 2009

Sagem Sécurité (Safran group) is launching a new e-Travel solution: IDeal Pass™, based on Sagem Orga's smart card technology. Designed to meet government requirements for identification and border control, it is the most secure and fastest certified passport available today.

Compliant with ICAO and EAC* specifications and certified Common Criteria EAL4+, IDeal Pass™ provides outstanding security performance. It is also the fastest eTravel solution, capable of reading a typical EAC profile in less than 3 seconds. Passenger boarding and deplaning procedures at customs border control points will not only be highly secure but also faster.

IDeal Pass™ will not only increase the reliability of travel documents for passengers, it will also fight fraud more effectively (counterfeiting, identity thefts, etc.), while helping to speed up passenger traffic inside airports.

To meet different market needs, IDeal Pass™ is available in various form factors, for example being incorporated in the passport cover, or in the polycarbonate data page, a technology fully mastered by Sagem Identification.
