Abstract
Intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) has risen to a serious threat for operators of critical infrastructures (CI). In this context, the European Union has funded three projects which deal with this problem. Passport control systems on airports are potential targets for such attacks. As part of cooperation between the EU projects HIPOW and FASTPASS, it was possible to start a test campaign for exposing electronic passport readers to high-power electromagnetic (HPEM) signals to find susceptibilities in these systems. The campaign had shown that it is possible to disturb such document readers with signals from powerful generators at various frequencies.
