MissionIR News - WidePoint Corp. (WYY) and Mount Airey Group Partner to Provide Global E-Passport Verification Solution

MissionIR would like to highlight WidePoint (NYSE: WYY), a leading provider of managed mobility services, telecommunications lifecycle management, and cybersecurity solutions. They deliver secure, cloud-based, enterprise-wide information technology-based solutions that can enable commercial enterprises and government agencies to deploy fully compliant IT services in accordance with government mandated regulations and advanced system requirements. The company offers unique solutions in certificate-based security solutions, wireless telecommunication expense management systems, and associated consulting services.

In the company’s news,

WidePoint Corporation announced it has launched and is now providing e-passport certificate management and validation as part of its PIVotal ID Managed Validation Services. The solution complies with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards, which have been implemented by almost all of that organization’s 191 member states.

WidePoint’s solution leverages Mount Airey Group’s Ozone e-passport technology, which provides the capability of obtaining digital certificate validation data elements and securely applying them in an operational environment without installing a large and expensive infrastructure. This makes deploying electronic verification of e-passports faster and less costly.

“WidePoint’s PIVotal ID validation service manages Master Certificate Lists for Country Signing CA certificates that establish trust points for each country,” said William Russell, CTO of Mount Airey Group. “By leveraging our Ozone e-passport solution, WidePoint’s Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) compliant validation service obtains the relevant digitally signed validation data from issuing country repositories, validates the document signer certificates and trust chain, and services validation requests from inspection systems.”

During 2013, United States citizens made more than 60 million trips to overseas destinations, and nonresident visitation into the U.S. surpassed 50 million, according to the U.S. International Trade Administration Office of Travel and Tourism Industries; however, the infrastructure to electronically verify e-passports is not widely available.

By collaborating with Mount Airey Group, WidePoint will enable airports, airlines, and regulatory agencies to verify e-passports effectively, securely and efficiently. As use of e-passports increases, the benefits of their security features can only be fully realized when the infrastructure is in place to read and verify them.

“We view this as a wonderful opportunity to fill this need with a highly scalable and recurring transactional revenue model that can easily and cost-effectively be deployed within a mobile cloud environment,” said WidePoint CEO and chairman Steve L. Komar.
