Progress in security technology will be possible only on the basis of miniaturized components applying modern microsystem technology, micromechatronics and nanotechnology as well. The importance of these technologies for security research and manufacturing will grow considerably within the coming years. The terms "microsecurity" and "nanosecurity" today have been more and more widely used because they are exactly able to characterize this trend. Distributed sensors, autonomous sensors, energy autarkic sensors, ubiquitous sensors etc. are words which can be referred to when discussing miniaturization in the important field of sensorics and actorics applied to safety and security purposes.
