From facing war crimes and drug trafficking to computer crime and weapons smuggling, the International Police Organization (INTERPOL) has its collective hands full. It's an organization whose membership base spans 190 countries, and its officials are tasked with a lot of international travel. This isn't the kind of travel that's done at a leisurely pace, though. With culprits around the world to catch, INTERPOL agents need to travel expediently to nab criminals who use fraud and coercion to cross national borders and evade detection.

It also is important that those tasked with securing borders have the ability to confidently verify travelers with ease. As government programs continue to evolve to include both digital and physical security features in their documents, passport agencies have found that the power of the document security is derived from a combination of the physical passport booklet attributes, the digital features within the booklet and digital features used to verify an individual’s identity during the enrollment process.
