In the context of EU accession, Romania has pledged to reduce cross-border crime and illegal immigration, safeguarding its citizens by issuing biometric passports. Thus, the Romanian Government approved on 24 June 2008 an Emergency Ordinance which provides that the Romanian National Printing Company will produce an exclusive basis, a series of documents, such as biometric passports. Conceptual architecture that describes the technical implementation of the ePass is related to two basic elements: the solution components and operational model for implementation. The components describe the entire hierarchy of components in accordance with the responsibilities they have static relationships between them and how they collaborate to deliver the functionality required of an IT system. Components are the primary concept used in a modular design. A component can be defined as an embedded part of a system that has a well-defined interface that is accessed through its services. Next we present the main components of this system architecture.
