The electronic passport, introduced not long ago, in 2005, is continuing to evolve in order to provide higher levels of authentication for citizens crossing international borders, while respecting their privacy. A brief overview of the whole e-passport architecture is presented, as well as the key aspects and changes that this document has been going through in its evolution. In this paper we present a promising novel PKI-based security solution that could be integrated in the next generation (4G) of electronic passports, namely in its supporting overall architecture, in the ambit of the NewP@ss project.
