Darko Kirovski. Anti-Counterfeiting: Mixing the Physical and the Digital World. In Foundations for Forgery-Resilient Cryptographic Hardware. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 9282, pp. 1-11, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2010)


In this paper, we overview a set of desiderata for building digital anti-counterfeiting technologies that rely upon the difficulty of manufacturing randomized complex 3D objects. Then, we observe how this set is addressed by RF-DNA, an anti-counterfeiting technology recently proposed by DeJean and Kirovski. RF-DNA constructs certificates of authenticity as random objects that exhibit substantial uniqueness in the electromagnetic domain.
