How to create a Secure, Encrypted QR Code
With increased incidents of document fraud, having a secure, encrypted QR code is one of the most mature, proven and easily implementable methods for document security. Creating such a secure and encrypted QR code is easy. Placing them on documents makes them tamper-proof and verifiable by a third party without any dependence on databases and with full privacy.
Five simple steps towards document security with an encrypted QR Code
Step 1 – A secure QR code service provider is your first point of contact. This solution provider will help you with an end to end solution. This starts with the creation of a Secure encrypted QR and ends with the validation of the document on which this QR is placed.
Step 2: Embed the encrypted QR code using a manual generation process or an automated one with API integration.
Step 3: These encrypted codes are digitally signed by the private key of the issuing organization. They can only be generated by the authorized entities and their representatives & are tamper-proof.
Step 4: Issue the document with secure, encrypted QR code in either electronic or a physical format or both.
Step 5: The encrypted QR code on the document is scanned by an approved Validator App or a web validation mechanism both of which carry the corresponding public key to validate the information and present it to the verifier.
