KINEGRAM for Secure Polycarbonate Cards

Sound ID protection is a matter of concern for every citizen. The use of counterfeit identity cards and driver’s licenses presents a serious threat to security both on a national and on a personal level. Secure identity protection is thus a core interest of governments around the world, not least in order to protect states, businesses and private citizens from identity-related crimes and related financial losses...

The gold standard in secure IDs is the use of polycarbonate cards combined with a sophisticated, well-integrated security feature. The KINEGRAM offers a wide variety of solutions for embedded security features for polycarbonate ID cards and driver’s licenses. Such cards are strongly resistant against counterfeiting and fraud.

KINEGRAM solutions for secure polycarbonate cards include embedded features or threads, that can be used to protect photo ID cards and driver licenses. Full Data Protection solutions open up new possibilities for design and take the security to a maximum level.

  • secure full-surface protection of personalized data
  • manipulation-proof due to complete embedding of the KINEGRAM
  • excellent protection against wear and tear in daily use
  • total protection due to integration of 1st, 2nd and 3rd level security features
  • allows for optical machine authentication and optical phone authentication solution

The laser-engraved photo lies beneath the KINEGRAM thus preventing photo manipulation. The photo is clearly visible no matter the viewing angle. Transparent optical effects overlapping the photo become visible when the card is tilted, whereas the metallized areas exhibit very high brilliance and enhance the counterfeit resistance.

The KINEGRAM can be verified using standard document readers and smartphones.

    KINEGRAM for Securing Paper Based Cards - the KINEGRAM Easy Card

    Whenever identity cards, driver’s licenses or passport data pages are issued in a paper-based version, the KINEGRAM significantly increases the security level of such identity documents. Thickfilm KINEGRAM solutions for paper based cards provide unparalleled secure ID protection.

      The instantly issuable KINEGRAM Easy Card protects the personal data of the document holder with a highly secure KINEGRAM feature.

      The personal data of the document holder are easily captured with an app. At the touch of a button, they are printed on a ready-made, paper-based template, which is completed with an automatically generated Visible Digital Seal code. Folding the printed document protects the portrait and other personal data by an integrated KINEGRAM feature. Together with the Visible Digital Seal, these easily issued identity cards possess maximum protection against forgery and offer two options for rapid verification: while the code can be authenticated with a customized app, the KINEGRAM protecting the holder's photograph is easily verified with the naked eye.

      The KINEGRAM Easy Card helps governments to comply with tight budgets and can be created using standard, readily available printers.
