While anti-counterfeiting technologies have advanced, vulnerabilities still exist; it is these vulnerabilities which have resulted in a significant rise in the counterfeiting of government passports and tax stamps.
Research from PwC suggests the problem lies in the macroscopic nature of these identities; RFIDs, holograms, fingerprints and irises can all be copied or cloned. This poses problems across industries such as pharmaceuticals, apparel, alcohol and technology. While the threat of counterfeit products damages brand and product reputations, counterfeit tax stamps and passports threaten the identities of millions on a global scale all the while hitting government revenue.
At Quantum Base we have created the world’s first unbreakable anti-counterfeit tag, our Q-ID® solution, which cannot be copied, cloned or faked. These are authenticated by a standard smartphone in real-time, redefining human security and identity protection on a global scale as well as streamlining border control requirements.
