|The semiconductor industry has lacked standardized methods to validate the integrity of goods from non-certified distributors or suppliers. The purpose of this specification is to describe the system architecture aspect of an authentication process to establish the trusted identity of products or objects. This specification is the basic element of a suite of standards. This suite of standards is being developed in response to a request from the Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force aimed at enabling automated, reliable, and secure product authentication for the semiconductor industry, thereby reducing the presence of illegal counterfeit items in the marketplace.
