A device for generating a born encrypted optical file includes a photovoltaic matrix for converting an optical image into a digital file. The digital file is a collection of digital data that has not been processed by any image processing logic and thus cannot be used to directly generate a reproduced image of the object. An encryption logic converts the digital file into an encrypted digital file that can be exported from the device to an authorized device to create a decrypted digital file. This decrypted digital file is capable of being used by a display logic to display an image of the object.
