Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior makes long-term commitment to secunet biomiddle

The Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior (BM.I) has chosen to deploy secunet biomiddle as its strategic platform for electronic border control and for the application process for electronic residence permits. secunet will therefore provide the Austrian BM.I with long-term support in implementing all biometric applications. Specifically, 500 workstations will be equipped with secunet biomiddle to enter applications for electronic residence permits, allowing fingerprints and facial images to be captured with assured quality. secunet biomiddle will also be the main electronic component in the border control process in Austria: The middleware will link all Austrian border control stations with the national public key infrastructure, which provides certificates for verifying electronic documents. This will enable our Austrian customer to perform any stationary and mobile identity check and verification efficiently in the future.
