ICAO layers 3-4 (e-passport)

ICAO TESTING

icao-layer-3-4 Request for a quote

Micropross ICAO Layers 3 and 4 test suite allows the compliance test of biometric passports following the recommendation of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) from a digital standpoint. In this case, the test suite will inspect parameters such as timing management, reaction to protocol errors (parity, CRC, ...) and anti collision mechanism.

The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) has defined a set of test procedures to guarantee the interoperability between biometric Passports, and associated readers. Several layers are defined : 
  • layers 1-2 : analog testing
  • layers 3-4 : digital (protocol) testing
  • layers 6-7 : application testing
Micropross implements all test methods from layers 1 to 4, and got their test tool validated by German Laboratory Cetecom, to testify the quality of their implementation. Cetecom is the worldwide undisputed reference when it comes to test of electronic government documents.

The main features of this solution are :
  • fully automated test procedure. The user just positions the e-passport on top of the test antenna, and just selects which test cases shall be performed.
  • implementation of 100% of the Layers 3 and Layers 4 defined test cases
  • also features BSI specific test cases
  • support of the different authentication mechanisms (BAC, EAC, SAC)
  • automated generation of test reports, ready to be shared with your partners, your customers and your colleagues

On the digital side, the test scenarii are very similar to the ones that are defined in the ISO 10373-6 specification. We will inspect that the e-Passport is able to correctly manage the T=CL protocol, and react in an appropriate manner in case unexpected events would occur.
The main difference with the ISO 10373-6 test scenarii, is that the commands that are sent to the e-Passport take into account the different encryption schemes.

Hardware components :
Test library coverage : 100% of the test methods that are documented in the ICAO test specification, including :
  • Frame delay time (FDT) inspection
  • Extra guard time
  • State transitions
  • Handling of anticollision
The tool offers editable zones to edit different test parameters, such as MRZ (Machine Readable Zone), and the different certificates. Once those parameters are filled out, the test procedure is fully automated.

This biometric passeport testing solution will typically be used in the following contexts :
  • conformance testing of biometric Passports following the ICAO specification
