“Anti-counterfeiting techniques”

The presentation covers the basic anti – counterfeiting techniques used for documents, banknotes, and general purpose tags for brand protection.

Many different techniques are available, and the solution has to be tailored to different types of goods and different attacks. It becomes evident that the use of a single security feature is often not enough. An integrated approach which uses different techniques is often necessary.

The different techniques are arranged in layers, each layer intended to answer to a specific threat and to a specific user. One is aimed to the final user, another to the inspector (police or supply chain inspector), another is designed for forensic use.

Used properly in conjunction with other techniques, even tracking systems, normally used to trace goods throughout the supply chain, can be successfully work as anti-counterfeiting elements.
