Was the e-passport introduced in response to 9/11 or because the US Government designed it for its visa waiver program?

The International Civil Aviation Organization, an organization of the United Nations which contributes to the regulation of international civil aviation, commenced work on the e-passport in 1998, well before the tragic events of 9/11 or the subsequent changes to the US visa waiver program. However, the e-passport is well suited to the increased demands for security in the current situation.
