About 3 dimensional Physically Unclonable Function
3D PUF Technology is an innovation. It uses a three dimensional (3D) “physically-unclonable function” (PUF) methodology using multi-dimensional physical layers built into a code that prevents copying. As result, it makes it impossible to manipulate data.
A reproduction possibility of code is 1×10<exp148>. Furthermore, a reproduction possibility of code is 1×10<exp148>, which makes it impossible to replicate the same code; even a manufacturer of the code cannot reproduce the same code. This is the core foundation of technology.
A Paradigm Shift
This concept is a paradigm shift from a single-dimensional and/or logical method to protect brand identity. Moreover, proprietary data capture and encryption algorithm for sending and receiving in a secure, reliable, and timely manner. As result, one cannot duplicate the same code, even if he has the transaction data.
It uses smartphones as a reading device
The physical codes are read through commercially available smartphones with a built-in camera, thus there is no additional cost to build an infrastructure for brand authentication. Consequently, this is one of the advantageous features of the technology.
3D PUF has broad application possibilities thanks to the nature of the core technology. One of the main applications is brand protection for addressing a trillion dollars lost per annum. Besides the brand protection application, it applies to government-issued IDs and documents for copying-free control.
Also, it works online authentication, where numerous illegal activities are taking place causing billions of dollars stolen. Thanks to the high adaptability of the 3D PUF Code, also it can apply to various materials either semi-permanently or permanently by embedding it to a plastic card, a thick paper document, fabric, passport, or even a small plastic tag.
The adaptability of 3D Code by applications
One can apply to various applications either semi-permanently or permanently by embedding it to a plastic card, a thick paper document, fabric, passport, or a small plastic tag thanks to its high adaptability of the 3D PUF Code technology.
3D PUF technology is a highly secure technology and potential with high expandability to other applications. Furthermore, it is inexpensive as compared to other existing technologies.
Material Technology Comparison
3D PUF technology provides a High degree of difficulties in copying, Zero possibility of server data, and replicating the same data onto codes. Moreover, it is highly cost-effective to build a service.
