Document Security for Certificates with KINEGRAM technology

Birth, marriage and death certificates

How to secure a certificate?

Most birth, marriage and death certificates are issued in paper form today. The standard approach to make them counterfeit- and fraud-resistant is to use special security paper, which is then additionally secured with a strong authentication device. The best choice for document security, including certificates, is a KINEGRAM - for example in the form of a KINEGRAM patch which is applied onto the document.

What are the advantages of KINEGRAM technology to secure certificates?

  • Instant improvement of the security level of the document by secure authentication
  • Individual numbering option: each certificate can only be issued once when linked to a database
  • Easy to introduce in an existing issuing process

What is the KINEGRAM Crypto Seal?

Paper based certificates can now be securely protected against misuse and manipulation with KINEGRAM Crypto Seal.

With the KINEGRAM Crypto Seal for document security, the authenticity of documents can be verified with absolute certainty by inspecting the optically variable KINEGRAM device alongside the scan of two unique codes in one single smartphone shot, using a customized app solution.
