Unique document protection and digital ID checks made easy with the Visible Digital Seal. While passports and ID cards are usually equipped with highly sophisticated security features, other identity documents such as visas, emergency travel documents, vaccination certificates or visitor badges are often less well secured. With this secure barcode, OVD Kinegram provides a simple yet highly effective solution.
The Visible Digital Seal (VDS) is a highly secure barcode and printable seal that allows digital ID checks and protects paper-based or digital documents against misuse and counterfeiting. It contains the principal information of the respective document as well as a cryptographically secured digital signature that protects against data manipulation and ensures the authenticity. It warrants document integrity and is an essential tool in the strive to create secure documents.

Within seconds and using a standard printer of your choice, the document is protected by a secure code which can then be easily and conveniently verified with any conventional smartphone or standard document reader, anywhere in the world.
