Digital Counterfeiting of Security Documents: Is Digital Reproduction Still in Advance of the Security Print Industry?
This session will review the different major types of secure documents in everyday usage (passports, VISAs, ID cards, entry cards etc.) and the types of technologies that can be used to reproduce these. Through a number of “attempted counterfeits” the session will discuss how the counterfeiter might try and defeat various overt and covert security “deterrents”.
As well as a review of desktop scanners and inkjet/laser printers which might be used by the casual counterfeiter, the session will also look at digital offset, CTP, drum scanners, magnetic strip readers and other technologies that the professional counterfeiter might use to prepare more “accurate” replicas.
The session will finish with a discussion of possible ways that print and digital repro. industry vendors and suppliers can help to mitigate and/or help deal with this threat without having to sacrifice print quality, performance and/or device capability.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
