National security has become a global issue, with governments around the world facing numerous internal and external challenges, and the growing need for accurate authentication of ePassports and eID cards. This challenge coincides with a rise in air travel, making accessibility an important issue at major airports.
At the same time, local governments are looking for new ways to streamline the authentication and storage of administrative documents, both online and offline. Linxens is enabling agencies in these areas by providing a broad range of secure products and services, and is recognized as a trusted partner of governments around the globe.
Advanced Document Inlays
Linxens’ core technology is a wire-embedded antenna on a carrier substrate, connected to a chip module. The laminated polycarbonate (PC) or polyester (PET) inlay is then smoothly incorporated into the data page or back cover of the passport. Additional security can be provided by ‘Chip Activation Protection’, which prevents an ePassport from being read when the cover is closed, allowing the antenna to transmit data only when the passport is opened – and being checked by authorities.
Covering the entire value chain, from module packaging through to the final inlay, are developed specifically to meet the stringent demands of the printing industry. Linxens products meet all the requirements necessary for flexible, reliable and ultra-thin inlays.
