Biometric Applications in Israel

Balancing Security and Facilitating Procedures at Border Crossings

Debate Session II

Frontex, October 2013


Balancing security and facilitating procedures at border crossings

Introduction

  • The vision of the unit which we established in 2012 and I head today is to direct a structured entry of the State of Israel into the biometric age on the national level.

  • The unit’s tasks are:

  • Integrative national program for biometric applications in the governmental, public and private sectors in Israel; Policy guidelines, standards in the field of biometrics, information security and privacy protection.

  • Overlooking the implementation of the law that institutes the subject of IDs (e) and passports (e) with biometrics in Israel(Biometric Data Base).

  • Ram Walzer: Biometric Applications Commissioner, PMO, Israel.

Challenges & Opportunities

INTRODUCTORY REMARKS

Concepts & Methods

  • The geopolitical status of the State of Israel over the years has created challenges, some of which are unique, but has also created opportunities.

  • Israel’s unique position and its experience in aviation and border security, has led to the development of tools, technologies and best practices to deal with threats and provide security.

  • Security is always a top priority, yet it always lacked resources and was

  • underbudgeted.

  • A steady increase in the number of passengers and border crossings

  • Significantly better technology

  • Political changes in the region and inside Israel

  • Change

    Challenges & Opportunities

    INTRODUCTORY REMARKS

    Concepts & Methods

    • The attempt to balance between security needs and efficiency provided various outcomes over the years. The outcomes that could be incorporated into the ABC outlook are:

      • Document authentication

      • Biometric authentication

      • Permission control

      • Threat Oriented Security Check

      • Intelligence

      • Advanced Passenger Information (Collect PNR and use for pre-screening)

      • A to Z biometric process (Security check; Check-in; Body check; Passport control; Gate control; Lounge access and other services (potentially)

      • HBS - Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) in aviation security, integrated with Threat security checks

      • Others

    INTRODUCTORY REMARKS

    Future

    • Israel’s objectives:

    • 1. Enabling safe, efficient and easy mobility around the world for its citizens.

    • 2. Provide foreigners who cross Israel’s borders with safe, efficient and convenient service.

    • Both, while preventing terror, crimes and illegal migration.

    • In order to achieve these goals Israel will:

      • continue to adopt international standards in various fields that provide complete solutions.

      • continue to issue passports (e) with biometrics to its citizens.

      • try to take part in global trusted travelers programs (MFA)

      • endeavor to open e-gates that meet the standards and best practices, and provide solutions to the demands of the various agencies involved at border crossings.

      • advance cooperation with other countries with the goal of improving its threat oriented security check and API capabilities.

      • work independently and in cooperation with other countries to advance R&D in the field of biometric applications.
