SPEAKER: Tage Stabell-Kulø (Unibridge)

Presentation slides: PKI for Id Cards

ABSTRACT: The public information stored on the chip of Norwegian passports and National ID cards is digitally signed by Norwegian authorities. The public key is a self-signed key which is also part of a global PKI (Public-Key Infrastructure). The confidential information stored on the chip, which includes fingerprints, is protected by keys managed under another PKI. Furthermore, the cryptographic protocols used in the communication between the chip and the terminal reader are based on the use of temporary ephemeral public keys.

This talk describes the two PKIs and gives a brief introduction to temporary asymmetrical keys.

SPEAKER BIO: Dr. Tage Stabell-Kulo has since 1992 been interested in the use of public keys, their potential, and their limitations. He holds a Cand.Scient. degree in distributed systems from the University of Tromsø, and a Doctoral degree from the University of Twente, Netherlands. His PGP key (71FBD469) is from June 1994.
