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.

Let's connect and see how exactly we help companies secure their documents.Contact Us
A Few queries we come across everyday, let's connect to get into more details.
Document security refers to the integrity of information in a document. Any individual or system looking at the document should be able to trust its content and feel assured that it has not been manipulated or tampered. They must be able to do it without having access to the source of the information. Qryptal helps ensure this with its unique technology.
You should ideally use it for any document of value that leaves your organization and that may need to be trusted by third parties. Examples could be certificates, IDs, receipts, invoices, letters of undertaking, letters of references, employment letters, pay slips, contracts, trade documents, etc.
Yes, one good use case is screenshots of online bank funds transfer confirmations. Users typically take screenshots and send to other parties as proof of payment and Qryptal adds value by providing a secure confirmation of such screenshots.
Qryptal’s technology can be used as as a cloud based service as well as for on-premise deployment. We have customers worldwide that we support from our centre in Singapore. However, if you still wish to work with partners - we do have partners and resellers in various countries - you can get in touch with us to find out more. Alternatively, if you are a reseller or partner and are interested in working with Qryptal solutions do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for new partnerships across the globe.
Qryptal’s technology gives you the flexibility to use it for both printed as well as electronic documents. Unlike some other solutions in the market, Qryptal’s solutions are not restricted to working with only one type of document.
The information you generate is accurate but once it leaves the boundary of your organization there is often a need to verify it and use the same for onward processing. Qryptal helps to do this seamlessly and also protects your organization from malicious attempts to manipulate this information which could be a reputation and/or a monetary risk to the producer of the information.
Digitally signed PDF technology is old and has been available for a very long time. But because of its complications hardly any user knows how to validate digitally signed PDFs. Also, digitally signed PDFs work only for electronic PDFs and the moment the document is printed or scanned or copied, these signatures are lost forever.
Qryptal Secure Code is designed to be placed on documents that may last very long term, i.e more than 50 years, such as university transcripts, degrees, birth certificates etc. Hence we have chosen to use a large key size equivalent to 3072 bit RSA, much higher security than existing internet banking which is typically 1024 bit.
The size of the QR code image increases with the amount of data stored. Qryptal’s multi-stage pipeline compression is aimed specifically at having a smaller QR code image for the same amount of data. I.e upto 30% more data can be stored for the same QR code image size. As such upto 2000 characters can be stored. For larger data sets, including attachments such as PDFs and images, Qryptal supports secure attachments associated with the Code.
The Qryptal code can have secure attachments. The attachments are stored, encrypted and signed. They are as secure as the information in the QR code and goes through an equally rigorous process of validation to check for any tampering, before being displayed to the verifier. By using secure attachments, there is theoretically no limit to the amount of information which can be secured.
We could get you up and running in no time. We had an enterprise customer who rolled out the solution for 8 different systems in just 2 months including integration, staging and testing!
Absolutely. In addition to the ID textual information, the code can also include a photo id as well an expiry date which is checked during validation.
There are a few different ways of validating the QR codes generated using Qryptal. When your organisation is setup on Qryptal - your domain will be used to create a validation page with your branding at verify.
In the cloud option - we will run this server on your behalf. The On-Premise software also includes this server. This validation page will offer three options for users to validate your secure codes:
You can try all these options by visiting https://verify.youco.site
Additional validation options:
Bulk/Programmatic Validation: If you would like to automate the validation or have a need to do bulk validation of Qryptal secured documents, then the Qryptal Validation Server can be deployed for such scenarios where your internal system can programmatically validate secure codes using the API.
Validation with your own mobile App: Qryptal Mobile Validation SDK can be licensed to add validation capabilities to your App.
Please contact us for more details on licensing the above products.
Simply post the image of the invoice (carrying the Qryptal Secure QR Code) to the Qryptal Validation Server. It first validates the invoice to ensure it’s authenticity and that it originated from the designated company. Once validated, it returns the invoice data in a structured format that can be read and ingested into most systems for further processing, helping in automation.
Qryptal’s secure code can only be generated by the private key of the issuing organization. The signature generated by the key is 3072 bit in size, which is stronger than most internet banking systems today. This ensures that the validated document originated from the issuing organization.
Yes. In addition to our cloud based offering, we do offer a solution that can run in your own data center.
Yes. It does.
Qryptal provides solutions for all types of users. We have a web based portal for end users. This does not require you to be a developer. To integrate with existing systems, some knowledge of using web based APIs is needed. The integration is similar to most web based REST API system integration and quite straightforward.
Yes, just sign up for a trial and our awesome support will be there to assist with any questions you may have.
In case of cloud API, the Qryptal generator is hosted by Qryptal on Amazon Cloud Service (AWS) and the customer is provided a log in to their account to use it as required. In case of On Premise, one or multiple instances of the generator are run on the customer’s computer systems directly.
We recommend to start off with the Cloud API as you can be up and running quickly. However if your organization requires that solution run only within the organization’s network, then you’ll need the On Premise solution. We have free plans under both the options for you that can be used for moderate production needs.
