Everyday Items Solution
It is possible to connect any product quickly and easily to the digital world. Contactless tags, such as NFC (near field communication) and RFID (radio-frequency identification), can be affixed to almost any item. These items only need to be periodically connected to the Internet — you can connect them for just a moment to deliver many capabilities, such as determining if an item is genuine, registering GPS coordinates, or transferring data to or from the cloud from an integrated sensor. The contactless tag is really just a micro-computer, powered by the reader, and even running programs and custom code. So, like all computers, they need to be trusted — secured, authenticated, data encrypted, and so on. Identiv provides a ready-to-use infrastructure that delivers a trusted identity to anything, securing that identity with techniques such as standards-based digital certificates, and establishing trust for literally millions of everyday items.
