  • Patent number: 6622247
    Abstract: A computerized method is provided for certifying a digital object. The digital object is uniquely identified with an identification. The identification is registered with a certification authority using a first public/private key exchange to receive a certificate of the digital object. Authenticity of the object is addressed by means of certification of the supplier's identity, in conjunction with integrity validation of the object. The digital object is tested to receive a compliance label using a second public/private key information exchange. The digital object is then distributed along with the certificate, and the label using a third public/private key information exchange. Ongoing confidence in object compliance is sustained by re-affirmation and/or notification mechanisms.
