An optically scannable code antenna is provided. Encoded matrix codes are printed with electrically conductive material on a substrate. An antenna pattern is generated on the substrate from the electrically conductive material. Enclosed information in the matrix code and accessible via the antenna pattern is provided. At least a portion of the antenna pattern is also a portion of the matrix code. Signals are transmitted and received from the antenna pattern made up of a portion of the matrix code formed on the substrate by electrically conductive materials. Authentication and security measures using the matrix code and signal from the antenna pattern are also provided.
