INSIDE Contactless have won, along with FASVER, the SESAME for Best Application in IT Security at Cartes 2003.

Co-invented by INSIDE Contactless and FASVER, the smartFilm is designed to protect biodata on official documents, the smartFilm is a security film containing a printed antenna and a Contactless chip. The chip stores the individual?s data and biometrics (picture ID, fingerprint?). A Contactless reader system can authenticate the chip and its data, verifying the person?s identity and taking out any fraud possible. The smartFilm perfectly matches with Governments requirements for integration biometrics into machine readable travel document, and particularly in passports and visas. It does not require any changes of the current visas and passports, its integration onto the passport is fully compatible with the current personalization systems (centralized or not), it does not require any changes in the procurement process and the supplying chain. It offers a high level of evolution, allowing, at anytime, all the latest technologies to be implemented by the security printing industry.
