  • 5. The Nicanti offering- Basic ConceptsWe modify and measure electrical properties of materials, a simple RFID
    Some Physics:
    • When materials are exposed to Radio Frequency (RF) they react in a different way as a function of their electrical properties (conductive & capacitive).
    The Nicanti solution:
    • With a printing process, the electrical properties are modified in a controlled way.
    • 6. The Nicanti reader is able to measure the variations of these properties and therefore to read hidden digital information.
    • 7. Every object or document may contain different information.

  • 8. Nicanti eCode
    Nicanti Reader
    Data management
    The reader uses Radio Frequency to
    detect the code.
    Only Nicanti reader can decrypt the code.
    A customer key is required to decrypt
    the code, give info on authenticity and
    send the information to IT system.
    Simple reader: “Check”:
    Gives information on authenticity.
    Advanced reader: “Numeric”:
    May send code to PC or Mobile Phone
    after decryption.
    Information is compared to original in DB.
    The authentication data is given by the customer.
    Nicanti manages the data, secured web-interface.
    Customer has access to information related to hisproducts and documents.
    Data can be extended to supply chain or retailing info.
    Encrypted codes are generated with Nicanti software on https web.
    Content of information: 96 bits
    Inks with taylored electrical properties are used to print the codes without silicon or silicon based chips.
    Printed inks can be overcoated with standard inks.
    Transparent or visible inks.
    Substrate may be paper, packaging
    or any rigid/flexible non-mettallic substrate .

  • 9. The Nicanti OfferingWhy should customers consider the Nicanti solution
    Revenue increase from reduction of fakes:
    Protection of originals, cloning or counterfeiting eCodes is practically impossible,
    Transparent inks enable eCoding without visible marks to printing surface,
    eCode can also be over-printed with normal colours and images of the brand,
    Reliable:
    Inks are stable in time, no loss of information, no chip on pack or on the document,
    Identifying electrical properties with radiofrequency waves is existing technology,
    Readers already manufactured in industrial environment,
    Affordable for mass markets:
    eCode contains same infomation as RFID but is 20 times cheaper (one cent technology),
    Nicanti Readers are durable and cost is very low (based on customized microelectronics),
    Easy and flexible:
    Readers are easy to carry, simple to use, checking does not require any knowledge of product,
    Printing process as with normal inks, no extra machines or components,
    Environmentally friendly:
    No metal, no silicon in the code, a detail that can be a driver!

  • 10. Technical information
    How the Nicanti system works – Step 1
    eCode generation:
    In a protected web site a customer key is generated (128bit).
    eCodes are generated based on the input of numeric information (96 bits) which has been encrypted with the customer key.
    The drawing of the eCode is made available in pdf or binary format.
    It is virtually impossible to generate an eCode autonomously because, both the code and the key, contain internal characteristics.

    Technical information
    How the Nicanti system works – Step 2
    2. Printing of the eCode:
    A special ink is required, may be pigmented or transparent (Nicanti Ink).
    Fixed eCodes (changes are rare):
    Offset, Flexo or Silk Screen printing.
    Serial eCodes (changes every print):
    Inkjet, Thermal transfer printing.
    Substrates: paper, rigid & flexible plastics, textiles .... (no metal).
    During the printing process the eCode is usually over-coated with traditional ink and therefore is made invisible.

    Technical information
    How the Nicanti system works – Step 3
    Reading of the eCode:
    Only the Nicanti reader can read and decrypt the code and only if it contains the customer key.
    Customer key is downloaded through a secure protocol on Internet (banking standards achieved).
    The reader is striped in the area where the code is printed (see picture).
    Operations performed by the reader:
    • Detection of the presence of eCode ink,
    • 13. Acquisition of the code geometry,
    • 14. Decryption of the geometry and verification of the authenticity of the internal characteristic,
    • 15. If authentic the information is send to PC or Mobile Phone by cable, WLAN or Bluetooth.

    Technical information
    Why is the Nicanti security system is superior in security
    Combination of 3 disciplines:
    • Polymer and nanoparticle science,
    • 17. Microelectronics and Sensors,
    • 18. Mathematics and Information Technology.
    Practical security aspects:
    • eCode is not visible (therefore cannot be cloned),
    • 19. Use of special security inks (only available through secure channels),
    • 20. Use of cryptography and customer keys (customizes the system for every customer),
    • 21. Microchip developed by Nicanti (retro-engineering of analog chip is not possible),
    • 22. Specific firmware difficult to develop,
    • 23. High security cryptographic algorithms for data transmission (equivalent to banking),
    • 24. Possible connection to a database for code authentication.
    These combinations make the system very safe and easy to use.
  • 25. Future development opportunities
    Future applications inside and out of the security
    Security applications:
    Non-Security applications:
    Use of programmable eCode Inks:
    Ink is not conductive when printed, laser or RF may program the ink further down the process.
    Miniaturisation of the eCode:
    Small two-dimension codes, new sensor geometry required.
    Distance reading:
    RF principles to be used to read in distance.
    Double security inks:
    A second security characteristic in the ink enhances the difficulty of copying, modification on reader required.
    Integration/customization:
    Proof of concept in mobile phone made, developments required.
    Brand communication:
    Striping of code can give information to consumers and suppliers.
    Multi Media applications:
    Low cost readers for home applications, games.
    Lotteries:
    Low cost substitution of scratch cards.

    VTT, with Nicanti’s support, is already running two R&D projects on some of these ideas.
    The projects (920K€) are sponsored by TEKES (Finnish government).
  • 26. Market and competitionCounterfeiting, unfortunately a double digit industry
    Market potential:
    5% of world trade, approximately 500 billion Euros, is based on counterfeited products,
    Branded good producers can loose as much as 15% of revenues to counterfeits,
    10% of drugs sold in US are fake, 25% in developing countries! (source IAA),
    Today, the global expenditure in security solutions is about 5 billion Euros annually,
    The market is global and grows over 10% p.a.,
    Globalisation made life earier for counterfeiters, solutions can be copied at lower costs and control of is not so strict anymore.
    For more information go to:
    http://internationalauthenticationassociation.org/content/counterfeit_statistics.php
    Customer needs and supply:
    Need for security solutions is vast and urgent (in industry and governament agencies),
    Customers are against costly solutions and complex applications,
    Relibility, low cost and easiness are the key requirements,
    Several security solutions available, not many combine low cost and reliability.

    Market and competition – Security Techniques 1From “tactile/visual “to “numeric” security increases, but not always the cost!
    Increase in security
    “Visual/Tactile” methods:
    Holograms, Intaglio Printing, Special Colour effects, Controlled defects …
    Advantages: Simple, no reading equipment required, “emotional”.
    Disadvantages: Relatively easy to copy, no serial information, high cost.
    Instrumental Analysis:
    UV, IR, Refractometry …
    Advantages: Easy,
    Disadvantages: The “trick” is easy to copy only difficult to find, no serial info.
    “Numeric” Information:
    RFID chip, Surface recognition ….
    Advantages: May be used for tracking & tracing, very practical (RFID)
    Disadvantages: Cost of readers and unit cost of assembled chip.
    Nicanti has reduced the cost of these numeric protection systems.
