The current design for EU electronic Residence Permit (eRP) was agreed in 2017 and cards have been in the field since 2020. In light of recent incidents involving high-quality eRP counterfeits, it seems that the existing eRP design may be compromised in terms of security. Based on our extensive experience of ID documents, we have put together our recommendations for enhancing eRP security. These can be also applied to eID, driving license, and ePassport documents.
In this white paper, you will find information about:
- Technologies used in the EU eResidence Permit
- Types of fraud seen in the field
- Recommendations to improve the security of the EU eResidence Permit
