1 SecurePak Electronic tamper detection for packaging developed by Cypak and Swedish Postal Service

2 Problem domain Tamper discovery: Has the parcel been illegally opened and closed during transport? Tracability: When and where did the tamper or damage event occur? Integrity: Are the received contents intact? Do they match the description? Who is the sender of the parcel? How do we know for sure? Quality Assurance: Has the package been physically damaged during transportation? Has the package been exposed to temperature extremes? Brand protection: Is the product genuine or a counterfeit? Upon receiving a parcel, questions arise:

3 Automatic tamper discovery: - Electronic tamper and damage detection - Machine readable, not dependent on visual inspection Traceability: - When: Timestamp of closing, sealing and tampering stored in log-file - Where: Event timestamp can be fed into an existing tracking system to locate the event Origin authentication - Unique ID number - Data storage of contents, source, destination etc - Strong encryption Temperature monitoring - Logs temperature extremes during transport The SecurePak

4 SecurePak system components SecurePak Cypak scanner SecurePak software USB connection PC with Windows

5 SecurePak Design

6 SecurePak electronic module Microprocessor - 32 bit unique ID number (read only) - 32 Kbytes non-volatile memory for data storage Tamper sensor - Resistive loops to detect packet damage - Sealing sensor (open/close) - Tamper events stored in log file with timestamp Contact-less interface - Cypak RFID (5 mm reader range) - Future version supports RFID (ISO 15693) Real-time clock Battery - Storage: >5 years (self discharge) - Operation: 1 year Cypak S2C Chip

7 Using the SecurePak The sender puts the contents in the package and seals it Package is placed on a Cypak Scanner connected to a PC Information about source, destination and contents is entered and the package is "armed" using SP Software Package is shipped The receiver scans the package using SP Software and checks the log file for tamper events

9 Theft/pilfering discovery: Locating where (using event timestamps) packages are tampered with in carrier organizations Secure content delivery: The receiver can verify that the actual contents match the description (e.g. pharmaceutical drugs, cash) Secret content delivery: The receiver can ensure that no one else but the sender knows about the contents (e.g. secret documents and products) Package Insurance: The sender can insure the package. If the package is tampered with, it is possible to track the carrier company responsible Application areas

10 Boxes and envelopes Pharmaceutical packaging Money parcels Plastic and fabric bags Tamper-proof tape Customization SecurePak technology can be integrated into almost any object that can be printed on:
