latest security mechanism recommended by ICAO and mandated by the EU to
protect the access to the data stored in the microprocessor.

eTravel embedded software is ICAO Common Criteria certified and has been
designed to ensure that the Moldovan authorities enjoy industry-leading
speeds for reading ePassports, resulting in swifter border crossing.

to countries that have deployed ePassport verification infrastructures

forward to working with Gemalto to provide Moldovan citizens
with the latest e-Identity documents for unprecedented levels of security and
privacy."
