ABSTRACT
For homeland and national security, the deployment of multi-modal biometrics is desirable with e-passports, but is hindered by privacy infringement and high cost implementation. We propose an authentication methodology which combines multi-modal biometrics and cryptographic mechanisms for border control applications. Specifically, we accommodate face and fingerprint without a mandatory requirement of (tamper-resistant) smart-card-level devices. We could imprint a (publicly readable) bar codes on the passport with regard to easier world-wide deployment. Additionally, we present a solution based on certification and key management method to control the validity of passports within the current PKI technology paradigm.
