Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
announces it will be supplying its Sealys eCover for ePassports to Taiwan’s
national printer, the Central Engraving and Printing Plant (CEPP).

As part of the solution, Gemalto will provide the Sealys eTravel ICAO Common
Criteria certified software, embedded in the highly-durable passport inlay
with secure microprocessor. The Sealys eTravel ICAO operating system is the
fastest in the world for both reading and personalization speeds.

The inlay was selected for its exceptional durability, which passed and
exceeded ICAO’s test standards.

According to the multi-year agreement, Gemalto will oversee the integration of
its solution with CEPP’s existing bookbinding process and the Bureau of
Consular Affairs (BOCA)’s issuance system.

“Our ePassport secure embedded software is the key to delivering the best
traveler’s experience for Taiwan’s citizens,” said Ng Fook-Seng, Senior Vice
President of Government Programs at Gemalto Asia. “We will continue to further
develop our offers to cement Gemalto’s position as a key enabler of secure
electronic solutions for the governmental agencies we serve.”
