XIRING : XIRING's portable terminal for checking secure ID documents enthusiastically received at the Milipol tradeshow

10/20/2011 | 12:25pm US/Eastern

Regulatory News:

XIRING (Paris:ALXIR), a security solutions provider for electronic transactions, presented for the first time, at the MILIPOL tradeshow, its portable terminal for checking secure identity documents providing performance in a small and light package, where experts in the field received it enthusiastically.

Following an analysis of technical requirements and user needs from police forces, expectations and specifications, XIRING developed a solution concept that maximizes ergonomics for the end user. The Milipol tradeshow was the perfect occasion to present this new concept called the "Handheld e-ID control terminal."

Light, truly portable and ergonomic all at once as regards the mechanical design and the integrated software, this solution is the ideal tool for checking secure ID documents on the go, such as national electronic ID cards, biometric passports, resident cards, etc. Other types of secure documents will continue to be added to this list, such as the smartcard driver's license scheduled for release on January 1, 2013 in France.

Thanks to its contact smartcard interface, contactless reader, MRZ magnetic-stripe reader and fingerprint sensor, the handheld e-ID control terminal offers two levels of security for checking identification:

  • Checking the document itself, using the electronic security options to ensure that the document is real and valid;
  • Authentication of the bearer by on-the-spot capturing and checking fingerprints.

Configurable, the embedded software can be enhanced with new functionalities in order to comply to specific requirements.

Laurent Maitre, Director of Marketing and International Development at XIRING, has declared: "The use of secure electronic ID documents requires that the European police forces be equipped with a simple solution allowing them to check such documents quickly. It is with this in mind that we developed the basic concept for this solution that has garnered much interest from the experts at the Milipol tradeshow."
