Liechtenstein ePassport realized with SAFE ID Solutions Technology

Munich, Germany – May 10th, 2007

SAFE ID Solutions AG, leading supplier of passport personalization solutions, has been the driving force behind the introduction of the new ePassport of the Government of Liechtenstein. On time with respect to the US deadline for VISA Waiver countries, SAFE ID and its partners were able to realize the design and roll out of the new travel document based on SAFE ID’s advanced personalization hard- and software solutions.

“We are happy with the selection of SAFE ID Solutions as supplier of both, inkjet based personalization hardware and personalization management software for Liechtenstein’s new electronic passport. The fully integrated solution fulfilled our highest expectations and enabled a fast, reliable and highly secure realization of this complex project on time and within budget”, says Mr. Hans Peter Walch from the Liechtenstein Office for Immigration and Passports. During the official press announcement this Wednesday, Otmar Hasler, Head of the Government of Liechtenstein, received his first ePassport and thanked all participants for the excellent effort in integrating a state-of-the-art and reliable ePassport personalization solution that ensures Liechtenstein’s leading positioning as a VISA Waiver

SAFE ID has delivered and installed its passport solutions combining manual personalization systems and the PSS Personalization Management Software. SAFE ID was also responsible for the evaluation and planning of the new passport design as well as several further factors related to the issuance system. “To ensure a seamless transfer from a standard passport to a biometric enabled electronic passport system, a number of factors such as secure data communication, key infrastructure, ICAO LDS data generation or the correct addressing of the passport’s chip operating system have to be considered and evaluated”, explains Hans- Peter Kraus, VP Software Development at SAFE ID Solutions.

SAFE ID’s experience in the passport sector combined with the know how of its partner OeSD, responsible for ebooklets and system integration have paved the way for the government of Liechtenstein to issue state of the art travel documents with a benchmark security level. One of the most efficient national infrastructures worldwide enables passport issuance within less then 30 minutes from application to final hand out.
