Tamper Status Detection IoT Use Case

Cryptographic Security, Innovative Tamper Detection, and Battery-Free Sensing

Download Use Case

The tamper-evident labels market is estimated at $14,329 million in 2022 and is projected to reach $24,244 million by 2032, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2032.

Today’s packaging companies are focused on incorporating tamper-evident properties into products to enhance their functionality and safety, and to comply with strict regulations. According to Grand View Research, under the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/161, drug makers are required to add a unique identifier and an anti-tampering device to the packaging of most centrally authorized pharmaceutical products.

Identiv’s Conductive and Capacitive Tamper Status Detection Tags with NXP’s NTAG® 22x DNA StatusDetect is an innovative, single-chip solution offering cryptographic security, tamper detection, and battery-free sensing. The technology uses multi-layered protection to support a broad range of NFC-based applications that can be trusted to protect products, services, and Internet of Things (IoT)-driven user experiences at scale.

“Conductive tamper detection is well suited to labels and seals attached to product packaging. The capacitance tag tamper feature enables an easier integration into special form factors, such as a bottle closure, and is also harder to be reconstructed by fraudsters. Before this solution, conductive tamper functionality was the only technology available. Now conductive and capacitive tamper functionalities are available. Capacitive fill level sensing technology is also an option.”
