Coesys SPOC/n-PKD simplifies inter-country certificate management for electronic passports.
The software comprises two modules:
- nPKD (national Public Key Directory) is a software module gathering countries Public Key Infrastructure certificates and revocation lists. The PKI certificates validation would ultimately allow border control authorities (IS) to confirm that passports are genuine and unaltered.
- SPOC (Single Point of Contact) is a gateway between countries agreeing to have their citizens’ sensitive biometrics data read at the border control.
