Pervasive and UseR Focused BiomeTrics BordEr ProjeCT
PROTECT is a 3 year project researching and developing enhanced biometric-based person identification at the border. Year 1 established detailed requirements, scenarios and established the legal framework. Year 2 has resulted in the 1st fully integrated prototype functional identification system integrating innovations in contactless biometrics, next-generation ePassports and virtualization of documents using smartphones, and studied the privacy impact and ethical and societal issues. 2019 will bring a full deployment and evaluation of the operational system at both air/sea and land borders.
