Authenticate. Anytime, Anywhere.

Zortag’s technology enables the creation of the next generation of automatic identification to include secure authentication of products and people.
Authenticate. Anytime, Anywhere.

Historical Technologies

Most historical auto-identification technologies are generic and any generic technology can be copied, duplicated, or reverse engineered. Other authentication techniques include biometrics, such as fingerprints or iris scans, color-shifting inks, magnetic inks, molecular markers using microtaggants, tagging powder, DNA markers, etc. Although generally satisfactory for their intended purpose, these techniques require specialized proprietary readers that work in laboratory settings. Such readers are not available to typical users who wish to authenticate an object in the field which is the primary reason why a standard approach to the authentication of an item has not been achieved. The problem has remained, but the solution now exists.

Our Innovative Technology

Based on the proprietary nature of past solutions, with the advancement of open networks and the capabilities of today's mobile devices, the barriers are now gone.

Zortag has invented a unique technology that combines a 2-dimensional (2D) barcode or RFID chip with randomly distributed 3-dimensional (3D) particles in the form of an optical fingerprint. This optical fingerprint is a unique highly secure identifier. The number of possible combinations of randomly distributed 3D particles used in generating the 3D optical fingerprint exceeds 1060, putting it in the same class as human DNA. These unique combinations are almost impossible to be duplicated by anyone, including our own company. Such 3D elements also have characteristic colors for subsequent image processing and analysis, which further enhance the randomness of our fingerprint structure.

Our Technical Elements

Our solution includes the ZorID™ 3D label, our app (either ZorSecure™ or ZorConnect™), our cloud server and the user dashboard.
