How it works

 

AlpVision Cryptoglyph is a digital invisible marking printed using regular ink and standard printing processes (offset, rotogravure, flexo, laser, inkjet, etc.). As a digital file, AlpVision Cryptoglyph contains encrypted information. Integrated with prepress, the Cryptoglyph embeds a pseudo-random pattern of microdots (10 to 20 microns) in the imperfections of the printed material. Non-intrusive and totally invisible, these microdots cover the entire surface of the document without changing its design.

Each document is therefore as unique and unalterable as a person’s fingerprint, providing:

  • Speed of detectability: machine-readable, document verification is performed using either a standard flatbed office scanner or a high-speed industrial scanner for automated processing
  • Integrity checking: verifies that no one has tampered with the document
  • Tracking: the printed document contains encrypted information about the document origins (author, time, workstation, printer, etc.)
  • Authenticity verification: proves that the document is authentic and not a fraudulent copy

Integrated into office automation software

 

AlpVision’s Cryptoglyph solution can be integrated into any existing IT value paper and document processing line and included into an organization’s office automation software (e.g. MS Word).

Best security/price ratio on the market

 

AlpVision's document security solution is commercialized under license agreements as an entirely customizable turnkey computerized system, reducing the number of actors within the supply chain, achieving maximum secrecy and efficiency.

Because AlpVision’s document protection technology does not require any hardware investment, our solution has the best security to price ratio on the market.
