When we talk about 3D printing and security concerns, one of the first issues that comes up is that of counterfeit 3D printed parts. If a skillful hacker manages to swipe a CAD file from the cloud or from a company’s internal network, he or she can then 3D print parts that are identical to the manufacturer’s originals. Several companies have experimented with anti-counterfeiting measures like embedded identification tags, but a group of researchers at NYU Tandon School of Engineering have come up with a method that’s even trickier.
