We link objects to their digital records — securely.

Trusted Physical Identity For Things

DUST — the Diamond Uncloneable Security Tag — is a proprietary technology which utilizes nanodiamonds to create an unclonable identity layer on any object. An optical scanner and cloud-based infrastructure provides an interface to the object identity and provenance. DUST ensures that trusted data and verifiable products are used and traced across their full lifecycle.

Key Capabilities

Compared with other marking technologies, DUST excels in several ways:

Security

Security

10^230 unique and unclonable IDs. Can not be reverse engineered. DUST leverages the inherent randomness in nanoscale systems to generate large, unique cryptographic keys for challenge-response protocols in a small footprint that can be applied compactly to any surface.

Minimal Footprint

Minimal Footprint

At an area of 0.0025 mm2 DUST fits on the world’s smallest electronic components.

Cost

Cost

Compared to existing identification methods (RFID, Barcodes, DNA marking, etc.), DUST offers increased security (PUF – physically uncloneable function, unique, tamper-evident) with reduced cost while maintaining durability and agility of existing methods.

Agility

Agility

Quick to validate. Zero-day deployment. Support a wide spectrum of products.

Safety

Safety

Non-toxic, inert diamond material. Carbon itself is FDA-approved as a safe additive for oral dosages.

Durability

Durability

30+ years. Diamonds are forever.
