Abstract
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.
