How it works?

Take Demo.

To verify SMS 00010702r to 09004030040

A Unique random generated Identification Code is assigned to each retail unit at manufacturing level.

The customer reads a code and sends an SMS to the gateway at regular SMS cost i.e. 1-3 paise.

If the retail unit is genuine the customer will receive a “Genuine” message via SMS with other information like “Batch Number”, “Mfg. Date”, “Price” etc.

OR

Customer will receive voice call on the same mobile / landline no. with automated system generated voice verification. [works in rural area]

3. Cloud Base Software Authentication:

Cloud-based is a term that refers to applications, services or resources made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider's servers.

1.A cloud-based anti-counterfeit service that instantly verifies product authenticity.

2.Make Sure Authentication service is a secure and scalable way to crack down on counterfeit products such as medications, cosmetics, auto parts, toys, electronic components, and tickets to popular musical, sporting, or entertainment events.

3.Cloud-based brand protection platforms and supply chain security software can provide a much deeper level of insight into the path materials and products take though the supply chain and any actions that don’t fit with approved supply chain processes. In fact, cloud-based serialization platforms are emerging as the best way for brand owners to increase visibility across the entire life-cycle from suppliers, manufacturing and distribution to the end-user to maintain a high level of safety and security.

For example

Industry :

Printer and imaging supplies

Approach :

Use a cloud solution to generate security labels for tracking and verifying genuine HP printer ink cartridges; enable consumers to easily verify a cartridge’s authenticity with their mobile phone prior to purchase

IT matters

• Flexible and scalable infrastructure handles hundreds of millions of cartridges and security labels

• Ensures integrity of security labels with encryption technique that counterfeiters can’t copy or predict

Business matters

• Provides brand and anti-counterfeit managers intelligence on global counterfeit activity through real-time analytics

• Protects HP’s brand and strengthens consumer loyalty

• Improves HP’s revenue by increasing sales of genuine products

• Enables HP to cross-promote related products at time of product verification

Sever software based Authentication :

An authentication server provides a network service that applications use to authenticate the credentials, usually account names and passwords, of their users. When a client submits a valid set of credentials, it receives a cryptographic ticket that it can subsequently use to access various services.

Authentication is used as the basis for authorization, which is the determination whether a privilege may be granted to a particular user or process, privacy, which keeps information from becoming known to non-participants, and non-repudiation, which is the inability to deny having done something that was authorized to be done based on the authentication.

Major authentication algorithms include passwords, Kerberos, and public key encryption.
