Visual cryptography is a cryptographic technique that allows visual information to be encrypted in such a way that the decryption can be performed by humans. The power of DNA molecule comes from its memory capacity and parallel processing. In this article, a visual encryption algorithm based on DNA microarrays is proposed, which successfully integrates the advantages of the algorithm in information security with the natural advantages of modern biotechnology. The algorithm converts plaintext into QR code and then uses the visual encryption scheme to encrypt the QR code image. It combines with DNA microarray technology to achieve information encryption and decryption. Security analysis shows that this algorithm has high security.
