Integrity checking is important in many activities such as. While the computing and telecommunication worlds commonly use digital integrity checking, many activities from the real world do not beneficiate from automatic mechanisms for ensuring integrity. We propose the concept of coupled objects where groups of physical objects are tagged with RFID chips enabling pervasive and autonomous integrity checking.
