Authenticate combines its research of data encryption with proliferation of camera based smart phones to make a document un-forgeable.
This is how Authenticate works:
There are 2 components of Authenticate:
Authenticate's "Validator" resides on the smart phone of the person who needs to validate the authenticity of the document which has the barcode from Generator. The smart phone scans the barcode using Validator and the data is decoded and displayed on the phone's screen.
Validator is available free of cost. It is supported on common platforms of iOS and Android and runs even without an internet connection on the phone.
