PROTECT has the following high-level objectives:
- To research current and emerging biometric technologies and methods for promising alternative technologies to those mandated by ICAO in order to break the constraints presented by those modalities
- To prototype concepts developed as a result of PROTECT research in a safe and controlled environment but using real locations with live subjects – to prove their security, accessibility and acceptability
- To offer the research,
specifications and experience from the prototypes to European border and
law-enforcement agencies, to European technology suppliers, having first
established the legal and social propriety of such initiatives.
