Biometric passports is to prevent the illegal entry of traveler into a specific country and limit the use of counterfeit documents by more accurate identification of an individual. The e-passport, as it is sometimes called,represents a bold initiative in the deployment of two new technologies: Cryptography security and biometrics face and fingerprints. The privacy and security implications of this impending worldwide experiment in biometrics face and fingerprints authentication technology. An overall security process that involves people, technology and procedures can overcome limitations of the Cryptography security and face and fingerprint biometric passport using ASP.Net.
