Improve the Performance of Traceability System by Using a Digital Certificate Enabled Anti-counterfeit QR-Code Mechanism

Yu-Tso Chen and Ching-Chung Chen
Abstract—The issues of solving food safety problems have attached great importance for years. The application of traceability system especially those invites ICT technologies plays a critical role of providing considerable solutions. However, the ICT-supported traceability system may still have problems for example the recorded data is incomplete, the traceability information is tampered, so that affects the practical performance of product traceability. This paper proposes a novel Anti-counterfeit QR-Code (AQRC) mechanism capable of delivering the functionality of integrity and non-repudiation for traceability system through adopting information security schemes including digital certificate and digital signature. The contribution of the proposed AQRC mechanism is to improve the performance of product traceability operations; meanwhile, it also indicates a valuable research direction of inviting information security concepts to solving product traceability problems.

Index Terms—Anti-counterfeit, information security, QR-code, traceability system.
