Gemalto has announced that it has started to deliver its electronic passport solution to Korea’s National Printer, Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation, through its local partner LG CNS.

Gemalto provides in particular its highly-secure, high-performance ePassport Operating System that speeds up border control. Its Sealys ePassport solution also increases personalization performance, significantly reducing issuing cost. In Korea, the Gemalto ePassport Operating System and application software are embedded in Gemalto’s highly durable electronic covers.

The protection of citizens’ personal information also requires an extremely high level of security. This is ensured by various technologies that are part of Gemalto’s ePassport Operating System, which has been certified against the international “Common Criteria” security evaluation process.
