Techniques described herein provide innovation directed to authenticating a device. An intrinsic attribute of the device can be received. The intrinsic attribute is a unique attribute that can be measured from the device. The device can be identified by looking up the intrinsic attribute in a distributed database. A match can be determined between the intrinsic attribute and a stored intrinsic attribute in the distributed database. If there is a match, the device is confirmed as authentic. Previously available blockchain systems do not employ abilities to track products beyond mere custody information.
