Built by humans...

An ePassport or biometric passport is a combined paper and electronic identity document that uses biometrics to authenticate the identity of travelers. The ePassports were heavily criticized recently. Why? Not secure enough. For example the THC/vonJeek Dutch hacking group created an ePassport emulator which you can use to create a backup of your own passport chip(s). To demonstrate that their process works, they created a fake ePassport. Owner of the fake ePassport: Elvis! Check the video below and if you want to make your own ePassport check their site!



Note: A Hacker is not a Cracker!

Bonus: Interesting reading!
