1 DUST Material

DUST, or Diamond Unclonable Security Tag, is a tamper-proof identity for physical items made out of quantum-engineered diamond nanocrystals embedded in high performance polymers.

Tagging graphic

Unique & Unclonable

With 10^230 distinct IDs, each fingerprint of nanodiamonds is a unique identifier. Leveraging the inherent randomness of ensemble nanoscale systems, each DUST fingerprint cannot be reverse engineered.

Durable & Small

From the bottom of the ocean to orbit, DUST lasts for years in the harshest of environments. DUST can be applied at 0.0025mm^2, small enough to fingerprint individual resistors.

Cost Effective

High security at a low cost. Compared to existing identification methods, DUST is more cost efficient at less than $0.01 to apply at scale.

Adaptable Deployment

Streamline integration into existing manufacturing and logistics processes - at a global scale.

2 Scanner

Universal scanner to support global authentication and tracking of products, parts, components and packaging; it allows simple and secure access to digital records at the right place and the right time.


Real-time Authentication

Scans in milliseconds at the point where authentication matters.

Configurable / Customizable

Offering either handheld and portable or high throughput scanners, the device is customizable by shape and form, based on customer needs and required tag size.

Sleek and Durable

Field service compatible; rugged for tough conditions built within elegant packaging.

Agile with Flexible Deployment

With zero-day deployment, this device is quick to validate. It works with existing hardware and infrastructure – no setup required, no drivers required.

The key to protecting our digital economy and ensuring the integrity of the global value chain is to build a secure third-party ecosystem. DUST Identity’s solution can serve as a ‘birth certificate’ for hardware and complements value chain security solutions currently on the market.
