AbstractSecurity provided for trademark products became nowadays an active point of view. Regarding this aspect, in this paper is proposed an RFID OPC UA server architecture used to ensure the identification, authentication and traceability of trademark products, using as fundamental components OPC UA wrappers. To this end, each product will have a RFID tag that provides information’s about the manufacturer and eventually production details, in order to reduce piracy. The presented architecture includes servers that are implemented for manufacturers, distributors and retailers, respectively. The whole architecture was implemented and tested successfully in practice in a demo version having as primary aim protection in preventing piracy for trademark production.
