Identiv Enters into a Collaboration with NXP on NFC-Enabled Secure Sensing Tags for Product Integrity and Condition Monitoring
Fremont, CA: Identiv, a global leader in digital security and identification in the Internet of Things (IoT), has introduced its portfolio of near field communication (NFC)-enabled status detection tags for advanced IoT security Identiv's NFC tags are among the first to use NXP NTAG Semiconductors 22x DNA chip devices, enabling advanced anti-counterfeiting, new-to-market tamper detection, as well as batteryless condition sensing.
Identiv's sophisticated NFC tag designs, which are based on NXP's new NTAG 22x DNA chip series, enable a variety of sensing solutions for customers in healthcare and pharma, retail, smart packaging, retail, supply chain control (e.g., blockchain), and augmented user experiences. The advanced portfolio secures everyday objects in mobile anti-counterfeit authentication applications and closed-loop systems, beverages, tamper-proofs medications, and consumables, and senses specific conditions such as moisture, pressure, or fill level using an NFC field, all without the use of a battery. The sensing tags with conductive and capacitive capabilities are ideal for status-aware applications such as improving supply chain quality assurance, verifying fill levels for refill orders or patient compliance, as well as wet/dry sensing for smart wound recovery or skin patches.
"Our collaboration with Identiv catalyzes our constant quest for innovation in the smart, secure product space," stated Philippe Dubois, NXP Semiconductors Vice President, and General Manager Secure Edge Identification. "The NTAG 22x DNA series, NXP's new NFC single-chip solutions, provide CC EAL3+ certified security, dual-mode tamper detection, and simple battery-free sensing for a broad range of IoT applications. With Identiv's specialized tagging solutions for the NTAG 22x DNA series, manufacturers can now protect product authenticity and integrity, while enabling a new level of condition monitoring to assure product quality and correct handling."
With a Secure Unique NFC (SUN) message authentication feature that uses AES-128 cryptography, the innovative status detection products enable advanced IoT security. SUN dynamically validates the authenticity and integrity of messages. Mutual authentication can improve security even further by protecting data from unauthorized access or malicious change attempts.
