Crafting Your Document Security Framework: A 5-Point Checklist for Secure QR Codes

5 Essential Factors for Your Secure QR Code Strategy

Congratulations on deciding to implement secure QR codes for your document security strategy. Now it’s crucial to make informed choices that will protect your investments and stand the test of time. Document security and verification are long-term commitments, and flawed implementations can result in wasted resources and compromised data.

To help you navigate this process, we’ve compiled a 5-point checklist to ensure you’re on the right path. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need further guidance.

1. Security and Compression:

  • Each QR code should be signed by the issuing authority’s private key
  • Off-code information must be encrypted with a unique key for each QR code
  • Compression should be applied at multiple stages during QR code generation
  • Generating small QR code images is necessary

2. Solution Architecture:

  • The solution must be scalable, capable of generating thousands or millions of codes daily
  • Opt for a light/modest infrastructure with minimal hardware investment
  • Minimize or eliminate exposure to central databases to reduce cyber-attack risks

3. Decentralized public key-based validation:

  • Prioritize privacy and security with decentralized public key-based validation
  • Ensure seamless distribution and management of public keys
  • The solution should be user-friendly for non-technical users
  • Consider options for web validation, Document Validation Apps, Mobile - Validation via SDKs, API-based validation, and Command-line validator utilities

4. Flexible deployment & integration options:

  • Evaluate cloud deployment and on-premise deployment options
  • Integration with legacy applications via REST API or Files API is essential

5. Enterprise-ready:

  • Future-proof solution with a 5+ year lifespan
  • Existing use cases and global validation in multiple countries
  • Proven large-scale deployment capabilities
  • Successful security audits and post-sale support availability
