Canon's advanced data verification hardware/ software kit consists of a USB card reader/writer, a dedicated Original Data Security Card, and software to be installed on a Windows computer. The system can verify the originality and integrity of image data. It can also identify specific data elements (image pixels, EXIF text, GPS info, etc.) that have been altered. A new feature in this version is encryption capability. Photographers can now encrypt their image files to prevent unauthorized viewing or wireless theft. Encrypted images can be viewed only on personal computers on which the necessary OSK-E3 decoding engine has been installed.
