Moiré effects have long been used for various applications in many different fields, including metrology, strain analysis, optical alignment, etc. In the present survey we describe some of the main applications of the moiré effect in the field of document and product security. We review the main families of moiré-based anticounterfeiting methods, compare them, and explain how they can be used for such security applications.
