Authenticate products automatically, in real-time
Counterfeit products erode the value of a brand, waste valuable resources, and can be dangerous. Brand protection solutions built by Impinj partners automatically authenticate items as they travel through various points in the supply chain, helping companies protect their brands and build customer trust. These solutions can extend the value of existing RAIN RFID systems and enable real-time product authentication for a wide range of products and materials such as textiles, plastics, metals, ceramics, and glass.
Attach RAIN RFID tags with Impinj cryptographic key to products and materials.
Use Impinj-enabled RAIN RFID readers to identify items at various points in the supply chain. Tag information is verified against a product database in the cloud.
Automatically confirm the authenticity of every product. Prevent counterfeits from entering the supply chain, protect brand value, and ensure consumer safety.

The Impinj Authenticity™ solution engine cryptographically authenticates products as genuine to prevent counterfeits, ensure product safety, and secure the supply chain. Impinj Authenticity provides:
- Authentic RAIN RFID tags, using Impinj M775 tag chips, programmed with unique cryptographic keys to enable secure authentication requests
- Impinj-based RAIN RFID readers, including Impinj R700 series readers and partner readers built using Impinj E family reader chips, to scan hundreds of tags simultaneously and send authentication requests to verify products are genuine
- The Impinj Authentication Service checks the authenticity of a tag and provides the result to the partner or customer’s product database
