SDW : Gemalto ePassports ranked #1 for speed
June 2016 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Gemalto announces that its operating system integrated in the Sealys electronic passports, achieved the fastest reading capabilities in the independent Interoperability Tests conducted at the Security Document World (SDW) Conference in London.
Sealys ePassport Embedded Software is the latest generation of Gemalto’s ICAO-compliant operating system. It meets the exacting standards of the Common Criteria EAL5+ augmented certification, which represents the highest known proven level of resistance to security attack available today for electronic travel documents.
Gemalto’s software was assessed in May alongside a range of ePassports from other companies, and the test demonstrated data throughput rates more than twice the industry average.
