Kyros has developed a system in line with ICAO standards which offers a unique blend combining ease of identification of e-Passport holders for the State and comprehensive, detailed management information for the authorities.

The new ICAO "e-passport" brings the passport into the 21st century. It will include a contact less chip used to store biographic and biometric data and images. This data can then be instantly transferred in a contact less fashion to a passport reading system.

In order to achieve interoperability between all the passports and readers of the countries that use the e-passport, Kyros will rely on the implementation of international standards for compression and formatting of this biographic and biometric data. These standards are defined by ICAO, and will reference ISO SC 37 standards for biometrics
