We link objects to their digital records — securely.

Trusted Physical Identity For Things

DUST — the Diamond Unclonable Security Tag — is a 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

With a serialization space of 10230 distinct and unclonable IDs, DUST cannot be reverse engineered. It leverages the inherent randomness of an ensemble of nanoscale systems to generate a large and unique identifier that is simply too complex to duplicate

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 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.

Team

Our team combines years of research experience at the forefront of applied physics with recent technology development for DARPA to create an unmatched security product.
