Facilitation and IT

“The recognition and power of a high-quality biometric enrolment continues to innovate and enhance how government authorities can securely and efficiently establish a trusted chain between the individual and the document,” added Beeson. “Of particular interest this year at the Symposium was the potential disruption and opportunities that are presented by mobile ID-based solutions.” ACI’s involvement with security and facilitation matters As reported during the symposium session entitled “Setting the scene,” ACI strongly supports the work being done at ICAO through the TRIP programme and in the security arena, and is keen to work with all stakeholders to bring all this together towards a truly seamless experience. ACI is also involved in various identity-related initiatives such as Smart Security and One ID; both projects fall within the vision of New Experience Travel Technologies (NEXTT), recently launched in cooperation with IATA. ACI is also working with the World Economic Forum, looking at opportunities to engage with the travel and tourism industry. All of these initiatives envisage a seamless process, removal of duplication, use of biometrics, on-the-fly processing (walking pace), use of automation and, most of all, a strong partnership approach. In conclusion, the future for identity management is bright. Cooperation and coordinated actions are key to ensuring that industry partners work together across all borders and organizational boundaries, learn from each other and find ways around some of the challenges to keep civil aviation safe, secure and enjoyable for all
