Biometric passport (e-passport) is to prevent the illegitimate entry of traveller into a particular country and border the use of counterfeit documents by more accurate identification of an individual. The electronic passport, as it is sometimes called, represents a bold proposal in the procedure of two new technologies: cryptography authentication protocols and biometrics (face, fingerprints, palm prints and iris). A passport contains the important personal information of holder such as photo, name, date of birth and place, nationality, date of issue, date of expiry, authority and so on. The goal of the adoption of the electronic passport is not only to accelerate processing at border crossings, but also to increase safety measures. The paper explores the border crossing privacy and security implications of this impending worldwide experiment in biometrics passport technology.
