Chip-enabled bags
Top French leather goods brand Delage has recently aligned with near-field communication (NFC) object identification specialist Selinko to integrate tags with unique serial numbers into a range of premium leather bags. The bag with integrated chips, provided by Inside Secure, are planned to launch in June.

"Consumers with an NFC smartphone equipped with Selinko’s free mobile app will be able to use the tag to access information about their product and confirm its authenticity as well as access marketing offers," Selinko told NFC World. "We are using the most secure chip available on the market — Common Criteria certified, military security grade — combined with a technology used by banks for more than 20 years — PKI — to secure the communication between the chip, smartphone and our servers."
