BPI was present at the Frontex conference “Biometrics for borders” in Poland


October 14, 2019, Reeuwijk

Last week the Frontex conference “Biometrics for Borders” took place on 9 & 10 October in Warsaw, Poland. BPI was invited as one of a select group of companies to participate at the conference to share expertise and innovation. Frontex is the European Border and Coast Guard Agency responsible for border control and coordination with the Border and Coast Guard of the Schengen zone member states. Every conference has a main theme, this time the conference focused on “Morphing attacks”.

Morphing stands for the gradual blending of one image into another. With the help of this technique a passport photo (morph) can be made with the facial features of two people. With this morph / image, for example, an identity document can be requested from the municipality. This creates the risk that two different people can use the same identity document. Identity documents where morphing has taken place are very difficult to detect by automatic border crossing systems and border control professionals.

BPI presented a number of measures at this congress to combat morphing attacks. These measures consist of a smart live recording system, with which a high-quality facial image can be made, regardless of location and time, and a mobile identity verification based on a facial image or fingerprint from the passport chip.
