1.1 This guide is intended to assist the user in the selection of anticounterfeiting technology as follows:
1.1.1 By determining what the user's requirements are as related to product or document by completing the user's specific CADDSS versus parameters matrix, and
1.1.2 By comparing the user's requirements matrix to a security technology feature matrix prepared by a knowledgeable person using the CADDSS versus parameters matrix.
1.2 This guide does not address or evaluate specific technologies, but rather provides a path when utilizing the matrix in Table 1 that allows proper evaluation of features of technologies available for use in the application.
1.3 This guide provides a procedure to accomplish the proper selection of a security system. Specific technologies are not addressed, nor is any technology recommended. There are many security systems available in the public marketplace today. Each has limitations and must be carefully measured against the parameters presented in this guide. Once this careful analysis is done, the user will be in a knowledgeable position to select a security system to meet his needs.
