SICPA, a global leader in authentication, document and product security, and track and trace solutions, today announced the launch of CERTUS™, to provide digitally-enabled security for official documents, credentials, and certifications issued by public and private authorities. The technology is specially designed to bridge the digital and physical worlds – as the CERTUS™ credential can be digital or printed anytime, anywhere with no possibility for tampering.
CERTUS™ is an innovative document security solution that enables government bodies, educational institutions, licensed professionals, and other document issuers to streamline and secure the issuance of official documents and certificates. Credentials protected by CERTUS™ can be quickly and confidently validated by anyone to confirm the issuing authority and the authenticity of valuable credentials like diplomas, health records, business licenses, certificates of origin, certificates of compliance, property records, vehicle registrations, election documents, and financial and tax documents.
CERTUS™ records and protects key data in a secure QR code signed by a cryptographic seal and protected with proven KSI® blockchain technology operational since 2008 and trusted by governments around the world. Ideal for securing sensitive information, CERTUS™ does not store any private data centrally and guarantees the integrity of the certificate for life.
“Leveraging decades of expertise in enabling trust in physical documents, SICPA is bringing its expertise to protect digital credentials with an easy and cost-effective solution that provides independent, third-party verification of documents, while protecting individual privacy,” said Marco Aloe, Director of Integrity Solutions at SICPA.
