Share Article

PassCheck(TM) Adds a Critical Layer of Security for Safer Border Control and Safer Travel.

Now, more than ever, the world needs better border and travel security. PassCheck(TM) is a step in the right direction.

CardLogix, a leading supplier of smart cards and software, introduces PassCheck™, ID Credential Validation Software for Passport and Machine Readible Travel Document (MRTD) verification. As the world has become dramatically less secure, the need for more comprehensive border security and compliance across many industries has increased. As demonstrated by continued terrorist activities, existing credential validation is not reliable, and added security is urgently required. PassCheck is a simple, flexible out –of- the-box, ICAO-focused product that solves these challenges.

PassCheck securely validates an Internatonal Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) travel document with these features:

  • Digital Certificate Matching Traveler to Issuing Country

The software fully supports ePassport PKI Validation. PassCheck reads credential data from an Identity Credential chip, decrypts it, and then validates the credential’s data and signature with the stored Digital Certificate against the ICAO Public Key Directory (Published certificates for each country)

  • Wide Range of Supported Biometric Modalities

PassCheck matches the presenter’s identity against the credential by displaying and verifying a biometric modality Support currently includes photo ids, faceprint, signature, fingerprints, and irises, which are stored in the credential’s smart card chip

  • Optional Optical Matching and Verification

Working with scanners and readers from Access IS and many others, PassCheck optically scans a credential, and then uses key forensic tests to compare the image against known exemplars for verification

Document Logging and Export    
Traveler entries and exits are logged, as well as image information correlated to the control person that runs the system

Applications include border control, financial ID, and casino/gaming compliance. Two versions are available: PassCheck for Windows™ which works with all supported readers/scanners, and PassCheck for Unity™. Unity is a Handheld Biometric Capture and Verification solution from Corvus Integration.

Other, Key Features of PassCheck Include:

  • An easy, intuitive user interface
  • Full support for 2- and 3-line MRZ decoding
  • Optional optical authentication when used with readers that have that capability
  • Optional sanctions lists and PEP compliance data

Biometric functions built to ANSI 378, ICAO 9303, NISTR 6529-A, ISO/IEC 19794-4
