Australian passport authority developing facial recognition system

The Australian Passport Office is developing in-house a new facial recognition system to keep pace with the country’s two government biometrics initiatives, according to a report by IT News.
The passport authority has been using facial recognition and other biometric technology since 2005 when it began using Cognitec Systems software to detect passport fraud. It later expanded on its use of biometrics in 2011, forming a dedicated panel of providers.
The Digital Transformation Agency’s (DTA) upcoming release of a trusted digital identity solution, combined with the Attorney-General’s Department’s (AGD) new facial image matching hub, has prompted the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to further assess whether its own infrastructure would be able to meet the new demands.
