TRACK RECORD - CASE STUDY
Basel Border Crossing, Israel
One of the most demanding organizations in the world – the Israeli Ministry of Defense – has embraced our technology to secure one of the most sensitive and challenging security environments in the world. Using contactless cards that are ISO 14443 compliant, with the highest levels of PKI encryption, the Basel Project allows absolute personal identification of people during movement to and from classified locations. The system monitors the entrance and exit of daily workers to the Israeli territories while assuring a completely secure, exceptionally fast border crossing. Improved security and efficiency at the border is achieved through automatic inspection of passengers based upon innovative integrated biometric technologies of hand geometry and facial recognition. By comparing data collected on location through hand and facial identification with available card information, the system is able to approve or deny passage.
Applicants are required to provide personal information and to undergo a process of facial and hand scanning. The system instantly issues a nationally approved access card complete with photograph and personal data to allow physical and electronic identification at borders or other government controlled locations.
