ePassport ecosystems are not just about the technology. With millions of personal data & national security interests at stake, it's about ensuring adherence to Policy & Compliance. Our experts help to ensure adherence with ICAO standards and specifically, Document 9303, Part 12, BSI TR-03129 that establishes all the relevant guidelines pertaining to PKI and Machine Readable Travel Documents.
ePassport ecosystems require time and attention in ensuring that the right type of infrastructure is in place to ensure that the services can run without any downtime and in compliance with global best practices for PKI deployments with National importance. eMudhra can help you ensure that your ePassport services are operating with minimal latency, strong uptime, and in a secure manner.
With eMudhra, you get an end to end stack on ePassport PKI. This includes the CSCA, DVCA, CVCA, SOD Signing, NPKD Terminal Control Center, and SPOC. Essentially, in simple terms, we can help you pick and choose the software in context of your roadmap and vision for implementation of ePassports in your country.
emCA provides the ability to set up and manage the country level PKI required (Country Signing CA, Country Verification CA) through which other certificates like the Document Signer Certificate, Document Verification Certificates, and Inspection System certificates all of which are required to enable Trust in the ePassport ecosystem
A PKD (Public Key Directory) solution in an ePassport PKI ecosystem centralizes and securely manages public keys and certificates. It facilitates real-time validation, ensuring the authenticity of ePassports during border control checks. This centralized approach enhances trust, data integrity, and international interoperability, crucial for streamlined and secure cross-border travel.
A Single Point of Contact (SPOC) solution in an ePassport PKI ecosystem centralizes communication and coordination for secure data sharing and authentication. Acting as a hub, it efficiently manages authentication requests, optimizing performance and security in the ePassport system. SPOC solutions enhance interoperability and streamline secure interactions, pivotal in modernizing international travel processes.
A TCC (Terminal Control Center) solution within an ePassport PKI ecosystem provides centralized control and management of secure ePassport authentication at various terminals. It ensures real-time validation of ePassports, authorizing access based on cryptographic authentication. This enhances security, reduces fraud, and enables seamless and secure travel across borders in modern, digitally-enabled environments.

emCA - Certificate Authority Solution has received the prestigious EAL4+ certification, signifying high assurance in its software development and security standards.
Country-level Signing CA issues certificates for document, master list, & deviation list signing; supports RSA and ECC algorithms.
Verification CA and Document verification CA issue certificates for document checks and inspection data signing; supports RSA and ECC algorithms.
NPKD manages and publishes master/deviation lists at issuing state level and has the ability to publish these lists to ICAO PKD.
NPKD encrypts passport holders' biometric data hashes for secure storage on ePassport chips with Signing Certificate.
Single Point of Contact (SPOC) manages Document Verification certificates for communication between issuing states.
The Terminal Control Center (TCC) plays a pivotal role in ensuring only authenticated terminals have access to crucial ePassport data.
The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) provides global standards for ePassports to ensure international interoperability. Compliance with these standards guarantees global acceptance and validation.
eMudhra helps by integrating biometric data into ePassports in accordance with national and international regulations. This enhances security and facilitates reliable identification.
eMudhra aids in setting up national CA infrastructures globally. It issues Digital Signatures for secure transmission and storage of data in ePassports.
emCA safeguards sensitive personal data in ePassports by applying robust encryption methods, controlling access to the data, and adhering to strict data retention policies.
Interoperability standards ensure that ePassports are compatible with border control systems worldwide. emCA achieves this by adhering to international technical standards for data exchange and validation.
eMudhra provides comprehensive security through the integration of advanced cryptographic technology and robust access controls. This guards against unauthorized access and potential data breaches.
BAC is a security mechanism in ePassports where emCA generates unique cryptographic keys from the passport's Machine-Readable Zone (MRZ) data for data encryption and access control.
Post BAC, the encrypted data is decrypted and compared against the physical passport and the holder. emCA assists in this process, ensuring identity confirmation.
EAC is a higher security level following successful BAC. emCA supports EAC by facilitating chip and reader authentication and enabling access to additional biometric data.
SPOC is a centralized system for certificate exchange and verification among countries. emCA aids in setting up SPOC, ensuring secure international certificate exchange for ePassport validation.
