IPICO develops IP-X RFID technology to secure global commerce
IPICO developed the Brooks-IPICO-Tenacent (BIT) seal through technical collaboration with E J Brooks and Tenacent. The BIT seal utilizes IPICO’s proprietary IP-X UHF RFID technology to verify the integrity of a shipping container in the event of possible tampering and automates collection of information on the security status of shipping containers at cross-border points of control to provide an audit trail of events from the initial sealing to the final destination.

The RFID tag that gives the seal its intelligence is currently based on the IP-X air-interface protocol. EPC Gen 2 compliant devices will be tested during Q3 2007, and is expected to become available for commercial applications during Q4 2007. The IP-X protocol also has the unique capability to read tags and to support the operation of large numbers of UHF RFID readers in the same frequency band.

The BIT seal offers the advantage of various multilayered security features:

  • Unique factory programmed tag ID provides each BIT seal with a distinct and unchangeable birth certificate
  • Built-in tamper evidence
  • Up to 1Kb user-definable memory in the BIT seal tag supports storage of digital signatures on the seal and links it with a PKI-based trust network for offline verification of the authenticity of seals

The BIT seal is also designed to seamlessly fit the shipping industry’s typical operational cycles. Manual completion of paper documentation can be replaced with electronic scanning of the seal and container IDs, using a handheld RFID scanner. If a high level of security is required, a digital signature can be written onto the tag, using the unique private encryption key of the shipper. The information representing the sealing event will be automatically dispatched to a back-end system, and if necessary, to a trust centre.
