JUSTIFICATION FOR INITIATING IBMS

• IBMS will be a homegrown system developed by FIA and also maintained by FIA, which is a leading name in International Secure ID Solution industry. Due to the sensitive nature of the project, it is imperative that data be secure and administrated only by Pakistanis.
• FIA is Pakistani entity which has a proven back ground in crime control and complex system development. It can devise operate, maintain and subsequently upgrade a comprehensive indigenous Border Management system
• Facial and Finger Prints are being used worldwide for personnel identification. FIA’s IBMS is being proposed to be based on this latest identification technology.
• The size and scope of the IBMS encompasses a number of stakeholders that include public and private sector organizations.
• Traditionally government departments are not trained to share information. The functionality of IBMS however revolves around the concept of timely sharing of critical information. To ensure that IBMS becomes a real success, a number of existing information flows would have to be revised and many more new information flows would be introduced. Security of information would be a very vital consideration, starting from its access to unauthorized persons to limiting of any possibility of unauthorized change in the stored information.
• Link with Pakistani’s foreign missions to receive updated information before actual arrival of the traveler would require a very close coordination between Immigration authorities of Pakistan and the foreign missions.
• The new MRP project was implemented with a view to addressing the systemic imbalances that have resulted in the issuance of fraudulent passports. The MRP system was initially envisaged to be integrated with the imported PISCES border control system. The limitations and threats inherent in PISCES made such integration impractical, insecure and unfeasible. This integration was consequently dropped from the scope of the MRP project.
• Issuance of MRP commenced in October 2004 and should essentially be supplemented with a fully functional and totally integrated Border Management System (which has a well developed interface with the newly developed MRP) so that the objectives of having an ICAO compliant e-passport are comprehensively achieved.
