What is an electronic passport (epassport)?

An electronic passport is the same as a traditional passport with the addition of a small integrated circuit (or "chip") embedded in the back cover. The chip adds digital security features that show the passport is authentic and the information in the chip has not been altered. These features prevent counterfeiting and better link the passport to its owner.
