Abstract: Cloud Networking of the Digital Information regarding a Document with a DNA forensic taggant – brings together the elements needed for a Smart Phone Reader to Authenticate and Locate an Original Document – even a single page of a document.
The Original Document is printed with a Unique Identifier Code (Serial number) with forensic Taggants. The Document’s networked cloud based file will contain the UIC (and other data), That UIC will be “published” (as all tracking systems do today.. ). It may have any information that the author wishes, but will only respond to an inquiry from a Reader: “Yes/No/Suspect” regarding Authenticity; and, only if encryption support (Blockchain) reconfirms it’s database as OK. It will add that inquiry detail event to the record. Location and Identity of the inquiry will be available to Author only. Cloud will report any surprise in Location or Source if not “appropriate” and consistent with the past.
