More information thanks to flexible features


Attributes are essential elements for implementing individual requirements and interfaces and can be used for various purposes.

In order to display useful additional information, e.g. on the product, production or batch, the attribute values can be displayed on the response page even during verification. Attributes can also lead to various actions by rules in the background. The response pages are controlled via attributes and rules. They determine which of the available response pages should be displayed and ensure that each user is provided with the correct information. A fundamental task of attributes is the hidden alert function. Here, the attributes provide the basis for the definition of rules that lead to an alert. In the example of a gray market control, the attribute target country is defined. If the actual audit location, which can be determined automatically by the end-to-end audit by the customer, does not correspond to the attribute target country, rules control the alert.

How are attributes implemented in SecIdent?

SecIdent is based on an open concept of attributes and distinguishes primarily between system-generated, proprietary and external attributes. System-generated attributes are already provided for in SecIdent and include, for example, the name of the customer, the serial number, the date or the time. Own attributes, on the other hand, can be created individually and offer a precisely tailored information supply. External attributes are transmitted by string during verification. All attributes trigger e.g. behavioral controls such as gray market detection, area protection and covert alerts. This subdivision offers the maximum flexibility to cover many individual requirements.

The names as well as the values of the attributes can be specified in several languages and consequently be displayed in the corresponding language by the browser. A further advantage is the possibility to change and add attributes and batches at a later date. Recall actions can be carried out quickly and efficiently.
