The only relevant part is:
[quote]Élément biométrique vérifiable par machine. Élément physique
d’identification personnelle unique (par
exemple motif de l’iris, empreinte digitale ou caractéristiques faciales),
stocké sur un document de voyage
dans une forme lisible et vérifiable par machine.[/quote]

No more details about the data stored in the magnetic tape or in the RFID
chip. The document only gives info about the printed text readable by OCR,
plus a few other mechanical security systems for building them.

There is also some small data perforated on some pages, no idea if it is
secured or contains something else than a unique ID of the passport itself,
the rest of the data being accessed by computer networks.
