RFID is commonly used to keep track of assets, but how can you be sure that the tag and the asset belong
together? Identifying counterfeit items is an increasing priority for pharmaceutical companies, engineers, and
other organisations anxious to ensure that products are as they are supposed to be. Countering fraud is also a priority as products are shipped globally,distrbution networks spread more widely and organised crime targets conventional business transactions.

Tamper evident technology for RFID tags deters fraud & theft.
RFID is commonly used to keep track of assets, but how can you be sure that the tag and the asset belong together? Identifying counterfeit items is an increasing priority for pharmaceutical companies, engineers, and other organisations anxious to ensure that products are as they are supposed to be. Countering fraud is also a priority as products are shipped globally,distrbution networks spread more widely and organised crime targets conventional business transactions.

What does Smart&Secure do?
Passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology provides a cost effective means of tagging assets to enable efficient, highspeed automated identification. However, if a tag is to reliably indicate the presence of the originally tagged asset it must include tamper evident technology. Otherwise, the tag can be removed, or moved from one asset to another, without the RFID system detecting the interference. MIKOH’s patented Smart&Secure™ technology provides secure, reliable, cost effective tamper evidence for RFID tags, ensuring a one-to-one relationship between the tag and tagged asset. Destruct-On-Removal:

Swapping tags from genuine to counterfeit parts can be deterred with a Smart&Secure based solution.

Smart&Secure RFID tags can be supplied in either of two configurations; Destroy-on-Removal or Tamper-Reporting. In this configuration a Smart&Secure tag stops working when tampered, thereby preventing the tag being successfully transferred to another asset or removed and replaced. The automated identification system must then be configured to determine by exception that tampering has occurred. In this configuration a Smart&Secure tag continues to function when tampered, but indicates tampering to an RFID reading device. The automated identification system then consequently provides positive indication of tampering.

Tamper-Reporting:

Smart&Secure adds a critical capability in any application in which: • RFID tags are used as security seals; • RFID tags are used to tag high-value, sensitive, or legally important assets. • RFID tags are used to authenticate documents, spare parts, containers or individuals Smart&Secure RFID tags are ISO-compliant and can be manufactured in a variety of form factors and to suit a wide range of environmental conditions. Both high frequency and ultra high frequency versions are readily available. Smart&Secure tags are compatible with all standard passive RFID frequencies, and protocols in the HF and UHF band.

The Smart&Secure Inform System
The MIKOH Smart&Secure™ Inform tag is a pressure-sensitive RFID label incorporating a chip and antenna manufactured from destructible conductive ink. Its tamper layer causes antenna damage when the tag is compromised or removed. This is done through a special multilayer adhesive design. A proprietary adhesive chemistry and multi-layer manufacturing process result in reliable tamper indication even when sophisticated tamper methods are used, including: • • • Temperature Extremes (e.g. Liquid Nitrogen Freezing, Heat Guns) Chemical Attack (e.g. Solvents, Corrosives) Mechanical Attack (e.g. Razor Blades, Knives)

The Applications

Applications where Smart&Secure tags are beneficial include: • automated vehicle identification • secure inventory control • secure supply chain management

MIKOH's highly-flexible Smart&Secure™ Inform platform works across a wide variety of RFID designs with no impact on performance. Smart&Secure™ Inform.

MIKOH MK-202 Label Tag
The MK-202 is a typical example of the Mikoh family of tamper detecting RFID tags. A UHF label tag, the MK-202 uses the popular Impinj Monza-2 chip but adds a conductive silver ink antenna and Mikoh’s patented multi-layer tamper detection system to provide a 25.4mm x 38.65mm tag that can be fixed to a wide range of surfaces.

• secure chain-of custody (esp. In conjunction with SecureContainer) • sealing of equipment, containers or locations • Technical Surveillance measures (TSCM) Counter-

Using the ISO 18000-6 standard it can be written to or read by any of the wide range of standard UHF reader/writers available unless any attempt is made to remove it from the asset to which it is originally applied. Removing the MK-202, for example in an attempt to attach it to a counterfeit asset, makes it unreadable. The MK-202 can be used in environments with operating temperatures ranging from -40oC to +65oC making it suitable for a wide range of uses. The antenna is a high performance loop/dipole hybrid configuration for near and far field item level applications but performance will vary with reader settings and the material on which the tag is mounted. Mikoh tags are available in roll form for easy application. Other examples of the MIKOH family of tamper proof tags are available offering the NXP Ucode G2XM chip, versions for use on metals, and small scale (19.5mm x 12.7mm) versions for tagging vials, evidence or research samples etc.

High frequency versions are available with the iCode SLI-2K (ISO1443B compatible) chip in 22.22mm x 44.44mm, 23mm x 63mm and 62mm x 92mm form factors. Custom development of tags based on other chips or to other form factors is possible for high volume requirements. MIKOH Smart&Secure tags can also be used in conjunction with Mikoh’s SecureContainerTM range. These products can provide a mechanism for transporting documents, samples or other materials in a way that provides end-to-end evidence that the contents of the case have not been tampered with.
