Qryptal was set up with the aim of making information secure by ensuring that it is tamperproof and easily verifiable especially by people who don’t have access to the source of the information.
Headquartered in Singapore, Qryptal was incorporated in the year 2011. It was set up with the aim of making information secure by ensuring that it is tamperproof and easily verifiable especially by people who don’t have access to the source of the information.
Qryptal’s founders have got extensive prior experience in secure information transfer after having successfully founded and run a company in this field.
Qryptal uses QR codes as the vehicle to store and share this information.Through the use of its proprietary technology,it is uniquely positioned to target a small footprint of the QR code with the highest possible levels of security.
Qryptal currently has users in more than 30 countries across large enterprises, SMEs, financial institutions and governments. We pride ourselves on having full control of our technology stack which allows us to be flexible as well as quick in making enhancements to keep abreast of latest developments and trends in the market.

Frequently Asked Questions
A few queries we come across everyday, let’s connect to get into more details.
Primary Data Codes (PDC): These are self-contained codes which encapsulate all the information within the code itself and can be validated off-line with just the public key. Before compression, these codes have a capacity of about 2KB of textual data and the QR image size varies based on the amount of data encapsulated.
Extended Data Codes (EDC): These codes require connectivity to validate and can contain much more data including attachments like photos and PDFs. The data is stored as encrypted blobs in the Additional Data Repository (ADR) object-store. The decryption key and fingerprint is stored inside the QR content. A unique decryption key is generated for every code. The information can be updated using the update API. The image size of the code is nearly constant.
Hybrid Data Codes (HDC): These codes combine the features of both the codes above and present PDC information when the validation is offline and EDC information when online. The image size of code is variable and depends upon the amount of PDC data.
The data and attachments for EDC and HDC are stored in the ADR. The default ADR is provided by the QSCS on the local disk. Optionally the Qryptal Generator can be configured to use an Object Storage Service (OSS) like Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 or Microsoft Azure.
