  • Cryptoglyph®

    AlpVision Cryptoglyph® is the only security feature in the world that applies an invisible or covert marking to cartons, leaflets, labels, and blister packs using regular visible ink or varnish and standard printing processes.

    AlpVision Cryptoglyph is a digital invisible marking that is applied to cartons, leaflets, labels, closures, blister packs and metal 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 is a digital image file that 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. When applying overprint varnish, the Cryptoglyph adds a pseudo-random pattern of micro-holes (40 to 80 microns) to the coating.

  • Fingerprint™

    AlpVision Fingerprint™ is a unique and breakthrough covert anti-counterfeit solution that tracks and authenticates mass produced objects manufactured by molding.

    AlpVision Fingerprint is a unique and breakthrough covert anti-counterfeit solution that tracks and authenticates mass produced objects manufactured by processes such as molding, stamping, rolling, and tooling.

    This solution applies to a wide variety of molded parts, including bottles and caps, electrical appliances, mechanical parts, imaging supplies, most plastic molded products available on the market today and watches.

    With no changes to the standard molding practices, AlpVision Fingerprint 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.)

    The process requires capturing a digital image of the matte-finished surface of a molded part and storing it in a database. This image is then used as a reference to perform product authentication.

    It follows that one image per mold is sufficient to authenticate an entire line of objects produced by the same mold cavity.

    AlpVision Fingerprint provides instant authentication, which not only helps confirm the authenticity of the object, but also increases the reliability of other safety features.

    While AlpVision Fingerprint cannot provide a complete track and trace system, this software solution can identify the original mold cavity, help locate the equipment manufacturer, and determine the approximate production date. As a consequence, agents in the supply chain will be less likely to smuggle molded parts to counterfeiters.

  • Krypsos™ Platform

    AlpVision Krypsos™ is a server-based Web application that allows brand owners to perform online authentication, including verifying the authenticity of Alpvision-secured products. AlpVision's Krypsos platform can also manage other third-party product authentication and brand protection solutions, such as Bar Codes, two dimensional matrix codes or OCR.

    AlpVision Krypsos enables brand owners to provide their supply chain with a single point of contact for both fraud detection and product authentication. It also generates valuable logistics data, such as gray market consolidation.

    The Krypsos platform manages AlpVision's digital authentication solutions, including Cryptoglyph - a covert security solution for packaging and labeling, and Fingerprint - a covert anti-counterfeit solution that tracks and authenticates mass produced objects manufactured by molding. AlpVision Krypsos can also manage other third-party product authentication and brand protection solutions, such as Bar Codes, two dimensional matrix codes or OCR.

    Using a standard office scanner or regular smartphone, Krypsos will analyze an image of the product and verify its authenticity within seconds from anywhere in the world.
