Abstract

Two-Dimensional BarCode (2DBC) based E-ticket is growing rapidly over these years. One challenge in the 2DBC system is to identify the 2DBC ticket’s owner so that transferring the E-ticket from one user to another is prevented. We invented the user identification technology by adding the compressed personal photo into the 2DBC E-ticket. The advantage of this technology is that it is easy to implement and no additional device is needed.
