Morpho to supply ID management system to Interpol
Morpho (Safran group) has been chosen to supply the secure ID management and document production system for the Interpol Travel Document initiative. Issued by Interpol, the Travel Document is intended to enable its officials to travel internationally on official Interpol business without requiring a visa when assisting in transnational investigations or urgent deployments (cf. Smart Insights Weekly #11-22 and #11-45).
Morpho will provide Interpol with a complete identity management solution to manage the production of new generation electronic documents. This includes multi-biometric data enrollment, identity checks as well as document personalization.
These travel documents will integrate a range of security features including 3D Photo ID, a three-dimensional laser-engraved portrait of the document holder. A portrait compliant with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements, along with the holder’s fingerprints, will be stored on a secure chip.
