Gemalto liefert Komplettlösung für elektronische Reisepässe an das Sultanat Oman

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), das weltweit führende Unternehmen auf dem Gebiet der digitalen Sicherheit, wird der Königlichen Polizei des Sultanats Oman eine Komplettlösung für elektronische Reisepässe liefern. Im Einklang mit dem erklärten Ziel der omanischen Behörden, den Bürgern mithilfe der neuesten digitalen Sicherheitstechnologien bessere Dienstleistungen und höheren Schutz zu bieten, erhalten Antragsteller in Zukunft sichere Reisedokumente auf dem neuesten Stand der Technik.

Die gebrauchsfertige Lösung enthält Gemaltos ICAO*-konforme Sealys ePassport-Dokumente sowie eine komplette Coesys Suite mit Lösungen zur Erfassung der Personendaten sowie zur Personalisierung und Ausstellung sicherer Dokumente. Der mehrjährige Vertrag beinhaltet zudem Schulungs-, Unterstützungs- und Instandhaltungsdienste.

In den größeren Dienststellen der omanischen Polizeibehörde werden festinstallierte und mobile Stationen eingerichtet, welche die persönlichen und biometrischen Daten der Antragsteller registrieren. Um den höchsten Sicherheits- und Datenschutzanforderungen gerecht zu werden, ist jeder elektronische Reisepass mit der sicheren eTravel-Software sowie einem kontaktlosen Mikroprozessor ausgestattet, auf dem die digitalen Fingerabdrücke und das Foto des Passinhabers gespeichert sind. Die umfassende Lösung wird Reisenden aus Oman künftig die Einreiseformalitäten an Grenzübergängen erleichtern und das Beantragungs- und Ausstellungsverfahren für Reisepässe beschleunigen.

Mit diesem Projekt wollen wir unseren Bürgern Sicherheit, Flexibilität und Bequemlichkeit bieten“, erklärte Dr. Sulaiman Al-Harthy, Generalmajor der Königlichen Polizei von Oman. „Gemalto wird die reibungslose Integration der Lösung in das bestehende nationale Registersystem für elektronische Personalausweise unterstützen. Gemalto verfügt über wertvolle Erfahrung bei der Implementierung von ePass-Programmen in aller Welt und wird uns über seine Niederlassungen im Sultanat lokale Unterstützung leisten.“

Oman hat bereits früher Pionierarbeit bei der Umsetzung fortschrittlicher elektronischer Lösungen in Regierungsbehörden geleistet und war 2002 das erste Mitgliedsland des Golf-Kooperationsrates, das seinen Bürgern elektronische Personalausweise von Gemalto ausgestellt hat“, sagte Hisham Surakhi, Vice President for Government Programs in the Middle East von Gemalto. „Jetzt geht Oman noch einen Schritt weiter und ergänzt sein Portfolio sicherer elektronischer Dokumente, um seinen Bürgern auch Auslandsreisen zu erleichtern. Damit gibt das Sultanat in dieser Region das Tempo vor.“

Gemalto ist weltweit an mehr als 80 Behördenprogrammen beteiligt und unterstützt zum Beispiel ePass-Initiativen in Dänemark, der Elfenbeinküste, Estland, Frankreich, Korea, Norwegen, Malta, Marokko, Portugal, Singapur, Schweden und den USA.

*Die Internationale Zivilluftfahrt-Organisation (ICAO) legt die Sicherheitsanforderungen für elektronische Reisedokumente fest.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
