AlpVision Product Authentication

What are the benefits of digital authentication solutions?

What are the benefits of covert or invisible safety features?

  • Digital solutions for product authentication do not require any additional consumables, making them cost-effective and easy to deploy.
  • Digitally encoded into various packaging materials, they do not require any changes to the printing process.
  • Invisible to the naked eye, they are highly secure.
  • Unlike most covert safety features, detection does not require highly specialized equipment or dedicated devices, rather a standard office scanner or smartphone.
  • Simple and low cost to implement
  • Highly secure against copying
  • Need no regulatory approval
  • Provide positive authentication
  • Can be applied in-house or via component suppliers and, in some cases, implemented post product deployment

What are the strategic benefits in implementing an AlpVision solution?

  • No visible markings
  • No additional consumables
  • No special reading devices
  • No production changes

Packaging & Labeling Protection

AlpVision Cryptoglyph is a digital invisible marking that is applied to cartons, leaflets, labels, and blister packs using regular visible ink or varnish and standard printing processes (offset, rotogravure, flexo, laser, inkjet, etc.).

Simple and industry proven, AlpVision Cryptoglyph protects billions of products across industries worldwide. It is commercialized under license agreements as an entirely customizable turnkey computerized system. AlpVision’s Cryptoglyph technology is FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.

Molded Parts Protection

AlpVision Fingerprint is a unique and breakthrough covert anti-counterfeit solution that tracks and authenticates mass produced objects manufactured by molding. This solution applies to a wide variety of molded parts, including bottles and caps, electrical appliances, mechanical parts, imaging supplies, and most plastic molded products available on the market today.
With no changes to the standard molding practices, AlpVision Fingerprint technology leverages the intrinsic microscopic surface irregularities found in a mold and uses these unique characteristics as the means of authentication (as opposed to adding safety features).

Detection devices

Unlike most covert anti-counterfeit features available on the market today, AlpVision's product authentication technologies do not require highly specialized equipment to be detected. A standard office scanner can be used for a “genuine-or-fake” verification.

A smartphone equipped with AlpVision’s custom product authentication application can also be used to verify the authenticity of a product. Working in real-time, verification usually takes less than 3 seconds, including time to pick up the package and position the phone over it.

Go global using online authentication


Global markets require global mobile solutions. AlpVision developed Krypsos, a server-based Web application that allows brand owners to perform online authentication.

Krypsos can manage AlpVision’s digital solutions for product authentication (Cryptoglyph, Fingerprint), as well as other third-party product authentication and brand protection solutions, such as Bar Codes, two dimensional matrix codes or OCR.
