Hidden Keys

Hidden encryption keys are written into each tag during the encoding process.

These keys are also stored on the ixkio platform.

Unique Codes

Tags generate a unique 'auth' code using the key on each and every scan.

This auth code is dynamically added to the scan URL.


The 'auth' code is verified by ixkio using the same tag key.

This checks that the tag is genuine and hasn't been copied.
