Travel documents have become an integral part of travelling into foreign countries and play a major role for border control. Today's electronic travel documents rely on electronic security protocols and infrastructure, which exhibit multiple shortcomings. On the one hand, utilised protocols and infrastructure are complex, partially not implemented, and have been found insecure in the presence of a large-scale quantum computer. On the other hand, electronic travel documents are only one part of
more &raquo; ... he document life cycle, since a passport can be obtained with an insecure birth certificate. Due to these shortcomings, focus is put on improving the security of birth certificates, simpler and post-quantum resistant security protocols, and infrastructure improvements in the identity life cycle. The security of birth certificates is strengthened by a blockchain based system and a 2D barcode which stores biometric information. Furthermore, simpler travel document protocols with less complex infrastructure requirements, fewer steps, and long-term post-quantum security achieved via hash-based cryptography and code-based cryptography are evaluated.
