ePassport: The World's New Electronic Passport

A Report about the ePassport's Benefits, Risks and its Security

Authored by Bela Gipp, Jöran Beel, Ivo Rössling

Two years after publishing the very first book about the world's new electronic passport 'ePassport', the authors Jöran Beel, Béla Gipp, and Ivo Rössling publish a completely overworked version of their book in English. The new book 'ePassport: The World's New Eletronic Passport' describes the basic details of the ePassport, gives a thorough overview of its technical specifications and then provides an in-depth analysis considering both, chances and risks of the new technology. Beside the explanation and analysis of eletronic passports in general the introduction of the ePassport in Germany is considered in particular.

Former IBM Manager and biometric expert Henning Arendt recommends the book to "all those who as mature citizens of any country introducing the ePassport, feel a need for reading up on this topic, but specifically to all those persons responsible for the next stages of the ePassport".
