One of the concerns for security field professionals is the proliferation of crimes committed with the use of fake identity documents. Fake IDs are popular among criminals but also among American college students who want to drink alcohol, before they turn 21 years of age. Thus fake IDs became available to buy on the internet from for a small fee paid in bitcoin. British youth obtain fake IDs mostly to be able to buy cigarettes, as legal drinking age in Britain is 18 years, so they are less popular in UK.

Security Testing Laboratory

The Security Testing Laboratory established by SECONA at its ASTRA campus provides the following services to the security industry.

Third-party Validation of Product Specifications

Tall, unsubstantiated claims, verbal or written, made by many Sis & OEMs is a constant challenge faced by the buyers of the security technologies. The learned buyers are, many a times, on the look out for authentic third-party validators who can objectively verify such claims.

To meet one of the primary objectives of SECONA, the ASTRA facility at Navi Mumbai has set-up a Security Testing Laboratory to provide various verification/ validation services for the buyers of the security technologies & equipment.

Analysis of Incident Data/Records (Electronic)

In today’s technology-oriented world, various law enforcement agencies & city administrators are relying on use of technologies in their respective areas of operation. In many instances, the agencies lack the required expertise or facilities to analyse the incident data gathered/generated by such technologies.
