Can Big Data Solve the Counterfeiting Problem?

Posted by:

https://epsnews.com/2016/08/01/can-big-data-solve-counterfeiting-problem/

The electronics supply chain has been trying almost from its inception to prevent or weed out counterfeit components. Solutions to date include marking components with a unique identifier and procuring parts only through authorized channels. But several companies in recent months have suggested that following the data generated by a component’s manufacturing, test, QC and related processes may be a better anti-counterfeiting method.

Counterfeit Parts: DOD Needs to Improve Reporting and Oversight to Reduce Supply Chain Risk

Posted by:

What GAO Found

Department of Defense (DOD) agencies and contractors submitted 526 suspect counterfeit parts reports in the Government-Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) from fiscal years 2011 through 2015. These were submitted primarily by contractors. Defense agencies and contractor officials explained that congressional attention to counterfeit parts in 2011 and 2012 led to increased reporting, and that the lower number of reports in more recent years is partly the result of better practices to prevent the purchase of counterfeit parts.

Defense Department Proposes to Expand Applicability of Electronic-Counterfeit-Parts Regulations; Tens of Thousands of Contractors and Subcontractors—Including Small Businesses—Affected
September 22, 2015

It has long been a goal of the Federal government to eliminate counterfeit parts—parts of unknown (and likely false) origin and uncertain reliability—from the procurement supply chain. But these efforts have picked up pace in recent years, imposing significant compliance obligations on holders of Federal contracts and their subcontractors.

In response to Congressional legislation, the ...

Ask engineers to solve a problem, and they’re bound to come with something. The Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) can attest to that.

Last year, the agency published a call for proposals turning to engineers to develop a nearly microscopic component that could be attached to system components. The idea behind the Supply Chain Hardware Integrity of Electronics Defense (SHIELD) program was to come up with a way to help identify and combat counterfeit and suspect electronic ...

Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that JEFFREY KRANTZ, 50, of New York, N.Y., waived his right to indictment and pleaded guilty today in Hartford federal court to supplying customers with falsely remarked microprocessor chips, many of which were used in U.S. Military and commercial helicopters.

“The distribution of unapproved microprocessor chips and other electronic components for use by the U.S. Military poses a serious threat to the safety of the men and ...

Tiny Spirals May Make Counterfeiting Impossible

PORTLAND, Ore. — Counterfeiting today has become epidemic for all things valuable, from currency to credit cards to microchips. Making sure that fakes can be detected is an on-going process that researchers worldwide are developing, with many successes like the holograms on credit cards and currency. Now researchers at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee) believe they have found another technique that may work even better — embedding microscopic Archimedean spirals that return a unique signature signal when pulsed by ...

Laying Down the Law Against Counterfeiters

Posted by:

http://www.ebnonline.com/author.asp?section_id=1162&doc_id=274110&

Those involved in peddling counterfeit components have done their business with relative impunity. But the successful prosecution of a perpetrator in the US may mark the beginning of some law and order in the rampant illegal counterfeit trade.

In what could serve as a legal precedent, a Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit military goods. He faces up to 46 months in prison when he will be sentenced to a federal penitentiary ...

DoD’s New Anti-Counterfeit Rules Are Confusing Defense Contractors

Posted by:

http://www.defenseone.com/management/2013/08/defense-contractors-want-clarity-dod-counterfeit-rules/68432/

Many contractors admit they will be unable to immediately comply with a rule, taking effect by March 2014, that would require contractors to either develop a new system for detecting counterfeit electronic parts or forego payment.

The Pentagon is under pressure to address congressional concerns about the risk of weapons systems failing if adversaries or sloppy suppliers slip in unauthorized components. That’s because the deadline for carrying out a 2011 defense authorization law calling for anti-counterfeit regulations ...
