ARTSIGNET has developed a unique solution, called “Biometric Signature”, to authenticate artworks. This solution involves High Definition Photography methods, including a scan of a randomly selected area, known to ARTSIGNET only. When an artwork has to be authenticated the artist (if alive) or the art expert for that artist, has to issue a Certificate of Authenticity. Then, and only then, ARTSIGNET takes the "Biometric Signature" and stores both Certificate and Signature in ARTSIGNET secured offline archives. ARTSIGNET online system holds the collected artwork information, yet the data itself is not connected to any online system
When authenticity is in doubt, ARTSIGNET art experts perform a cross-reference Authenticity Check. Achieved via sophisticated reproduction technologies, the fine detailed “Biometric Signature”, of a randomly selected area, is a highly reliable authentication method, virtually impossible to reproduce.
