ADSS ePASSPORT SERVER

Advanced Digital Signature Services

Ascertia’s ADSS ePassport Server provides countries with everything they need to deliver a standards compliant PKI to support passport issuance and to authenticate terminals at border control.

Based on the Ascertia’s ADSS Server platform, the ADSS ePassport Server is easily deployed into a new or existing ePassport architecture and can provide a world class signing platform for the protection of ePassport holder information.

The solution delivers all of the key components required to deploy into a new or existing ePassport architecture for issuing, protecting and automatically validating ePassports. It also includes a SDK that enables border control to inspect ePassports. Service modules include:

National Public Key Directory (NPKD)
Master List Signer (MLS)
Country Signing Certification Authority (CSCA)
Country Verifying CA (CVCA)
Document Verifier (DV)
Single Point of Contact CA (SPOC CA)

These enable border control to securely collect, check and distribute all cryptographic materials needed to validate a passport.

ADSS ePassport Server also provides the key components to deliver electronic security to machine-readable travel documents (MRTD) – the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the European Union introduced standards to provide security to these documents and this has helped to deliver superior border security to countries globally
