e-Passport Specifications and Next Generation Use Cases
Today the e-passport market can be described as one of maturity with a well-defined use case, particularly when compared to other government-issued credentials utilizing smart card technology. Well over 100 countries now issue e-passports and new green field issuance opportunity is somewhat limited as the market reaches its tipping point.
As ICAO continues to develop its next generation LDSV2 e-passport specification, due for release in 2016/2017, ABI Research will take a look back over the evolution of e-passports, the security measures undertaken and improved upon and provide analysis into how, if at all the soon-to-be released LDSV2 specification may pave the way for new business, added value and service enablement.
