Abstract:

Proposes adoption of an industry standard marking protocol to assure the authenticity of high-reliability electronics. The protocol is seen as a key ingredient in the industry's effort to control counterfeit electronic parts escapes.

The specifications of the marking protocol have been informed by the experience of the authors, who are currently participating in a DNA marking program mandated by the Defense Logistics Agency.

The protocol would set out these criteria for an effective marking program:

Simplicity

Proven uncopyability

Reportability: transparency and ease of oversight

Legal validity: empowering of law enforcement

Quick ramp-up and seamless implementation

Extreme fidelity and absolute character of results - reliability of the mark at a very high level

Universal adoption
