When we verify the authenticity in the Authentication Platform, the Security Codes to enter are the numeric or alphanumeric hidden under a coating in Anti-Counterfeiting Label. Will it be possible to simply create some alphanumeric numbers and to be used as Security Codes? That is not possible as the generated digital codes are randomized and not repeated. The generated digital codes must not be repeatable or have patterns to follow, otherwise, it will be easy for counterfeiters to forge the Security Codes.

How Does Security Code Functions?

Security codes are also known as digital codes. It is a type of Digital Anti-Counterfeiting Solution. The Security Code is normally covered under a silver coating. It can be a series of alphanumeric codes in black or other colors. Security Codes will be generated by a local server as an ID number for each commodity and these Digital Codes will be recorded in the backend of the server. When a consumer scans and verifies the security codes in the Authentication Platform, the backend system will check data corresponding to the ID of the commodity. If it is the first time to verify, it will indicate that the product is genuine. In contrast, if it is not the first time of verification or has been verified several times or failed in verification, it will indicate the product may not be genuine. This process is the mechanism of the Security Codes function.
