A highly innovative and low-cost anti-counterfeiting solution which utilises micro-wires to maximise security and authentication

Project description

Tiny wires big in battle against forgeries

Counterfeiting is a crime dating back to antiquity. Today, fake currency weakens economies and jeopardises people’s livelihoods. Also, fraudulent identity and security documents give criminals freedom of movement and pose a major threat to society. In this context, the EU-funded SecWire project is developing an anti-counterfeiting system that utilises ferromagnetic microwires to offer high levels of IP security. What’s innovative about this system is the manufacturing process that enables production of tiny glass-coated microwires, small enough to be integrated in security paper. Cut to any length, the microwires are invisible and impossible to be removed, duplicated or deactivated. Extensive pilot tests will be conducted in collaboration with secure document manufacturers and governments.
