HPT600 handheld ePassport terminal unveiled
PRADOTEC and Intel Malaysia have unveiled the HPT600, a handheld ePassport terminal powered by the Intel Atom processor technology.
Built on Intel Atom processor technology, PRADOTEC says its HPT600 handheld ePassport terminal is designed to transform the concept of security where unauthorized individuals can be detected in secured areas – from major ports on land and sea, as well as at country borders and large high-security areas. This provides more effective and secure border controls management. The device can also be used at international conferences where identification via passport is required for security access management.
Powered by the Intel Atom Z510 processor, the PRADOTEC HPT600 handheld ePassport terminal can process intensive applications that are required in an ePassport’s image processing and complex secure encryption computation.
Designed as a compact, all-in-one device, the HPT600 has a built-in Machine Readable Zone scanner for Basic Access Control, ISO14443 contactless reader, as well as an optical biometric fingerprint scanner as an option. The device allows passport verification on the spot, and the multiple wireless communications including quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 802.11b/g wireless LAN and Bluetooth enable data to be transferred back to the main server for verification.
The device is fully compliant with the latest International Civil Aviation (ICAO) standards on Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) travel documents. It also supports Basic Access Control (BAC), Extended Access Control (EAC), Active Authentication (AA) and Secure Object Data (SOD) processing as recommended by ICAO and required by many countries.
