Security and Confidentiality

Mutual trust between partners is essential when detecting frauds:

  • The examiner must be convinced that the service responding to her request is the service of the brand, not a pirate service;
  • The brand must verify the identity of the examiner before providing relevant information. It may communicate differently to consumers, retailers, enforcing authorities, or its own agents.

IsThatGenuine enables this trust:

  1. Each partner (examiners portal, brand service) receives a unique identifier, its GLN (“Global Location Number”). This GLN enables the partners to identify each other.
  2. Each partner can detect fraudulent use of the identifier of the other partner, thanks to the use of cryptographic certificates.
