Deutsche Lufthansa checks travel documents at international hot spots using secunet's mobile verification system

secunet has developed an automated, mobile passport verification system for Deutsche Lufthansa. The system provides trained Lufthansa personnel with support in checking travel documents optically before check-in. The essential optical security identifiers of the documents are checked in UV, infrared and visible light and their validity and accordance with the reference database is verified. Forged travel documents carried by passengers heading for or stopping over in Germany can thus be identified in the country of departure and the illegal carriage of persons can be prevented at an early stage.
