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

New European Commission Strategy: Cash is a public good and must be accepted by retailers

In the European Commission’s Communication on a Retail Payments Strategy, the European Union’s executive has underlined the importance of cash as a public good – stating that “Cash is a means of payment that offers instant settlement in face-to-face transactions, without any technical infrastructure. It is still the only form of money individuals can hold directly. As such, it should remain widely accessible and accepted.”
