A fake-proof card encoding system comprises an encoding read/write device utilizing components that allow for the recording of data to an EEPROM memory device. A photographic-type image is acquired, digitized and compressed for storage in the memory. The data comprises a data table containing randomly distributed unique serialized information. This information may be the serial number of the encoding read/write terminal, or the issue number of the particular identification information created by the encoding terminal. Advantageously, the system uses color cell compression for the acquisition, digitization and compression of the photographic-type image, which may be a facial representation, fingerprint, signature, voice print, eye retina or any other unique personal identification in a compressed form which may later be machine read to verify the positive identification of the presenter.
