A passport reader or passport scanner isa camera specialized imaging equipment that captures images of the supplied identity documents. In contrast to a conventional camera, a passport scanner employs specialized illuminations when scanning the document. In addition to visible white light, it also has infrared and ultraviolet light sources.

The photos captured under these lighting conditions are utilized for particular image processing activities, mostly for data reading and verification. The chip in the e-passport provides additional security measures. The security measures will allow the system to detect any attempts to tamper with the chip. In addition, it cannot be altered, and abuse of the passport is prevented.

A biometric passport (also called an e-passport, ePassport, or digital passport) is a regular passport with an implanted electronic microprocessor chip that includes biometric information that may be used to validate the passport holder's identity. It employs contactless smart card technology, which includes a microprocessor chip (computer chip) and antenna (for both power to the chip and communication) that are integrated into the front or rear cover or center page of the passport.

The passport's vital information is printed on the datasheet, repeated on the machine-readable lines, and saved in the chip. Public key infrastructure (PKI) is used to authenticate the data contained electronically in the passport chip, making it costly and impossible to fake provided all security methods are implemented appropriately.
