The main questions around Q-BOT


Discover the answers to your main questions about Q-BOT, an innovation from Q-Leap that automates dual authentication via token.

The objective of the testers is to validate that the applications and technological solutions comply with the requirements defined upstream. Test experts, especially automaticians (those whose job it is to transform “manual” tests into “automatic” tests), must be able to interact with all of an application’s functionality without any barriers. Bypassing certain features such as two-factor authentication puts the quality of the delivered application at risk. With Q-Bot, these features can now be tested in full, resulting in higher quality of the delivered application and more security to the projects.  Find out the answers to your most important questions here.

If you have a problem that interests you in particular and that has not been answered in this FAQ, ask us your question at the bottom of this page. We are here to answer them! But first, let’s look at the main questions you may have.

Q-Bot is a unique robot whose goal is to automate the double authentication (2FA) by retrieving the value of authentication tokens.

Hardware tokens are often used as a second authentication factor(dual authentication or 2FA) and allow for increased security of access to applications or computer systems in general. Luxtrust is a Luxembourg-based provider of secure access to bank accounts, monetary transactions or to strengthen confidence in cybersecurity.

With a robot like Q-Bot, which automatically retrieves the value of tokens, it becomes possible to automate testing processes that were previously impossible to automate.

Test Automation is the execution of test cases that were previously executed manually, but automatically, without any concrete action by a human.

Automating test cases consists in writing scripts, which will be executed by a machine, using one of the many technologies available on the market (selenium,, cypress, appium, robot framework, cucumber, etc.).

Test automation allows to gain in productivity because the test cases are no longer executed by a person but by a machine. The test cases can therefore be executed as often as desired. In the case of agile projects, one of the characteristics of which is to deliver often, test automation makes it possible to guarantee a certain level of quality in a minimum of time and to avoid regressions.

In addition to offering productivity gains, test automation does not suffer from the lack of vigilance or bias of manual testing.

A manual tester is subject to a decrease in vigilance, especially when performing the same tests a large number of times. As for bias, it may be influenced by what it sees and not follow the steps of the test cases it is supposed to run.

Q-Bot allows to automate the execution of the most critical test cases that until now could not be executed because of the physical constraint of authentication tokens.

With Q-Bot, it becomes possible to automate the testing of the most critical functionalities of the applications, for example login, document signing, transaction validation, official requests, etc.

All features that require the use of an authentication token (dual authentication or 2 FA) cannot be automated without a bot like Q-Bot.

The testers’ objectives are to validate that the applications comply with the requirements defined upstream.

Testers, especially automation specialists, need to be able to interact with the full functionality of an application. Bypassing certain features such as two-factor authentication puts the quality of the delivered application at risk. With Q-Bot, these features can now be tested, which results in a higher quality of the delivered application.

For testing activities, Q-Bot is a simple, safe and effective solution:

  • It is very easy to use with its two types of access: Web and API
  • There is no software installation required. A simple connection to the company network is required
  • The recovery of the token value is done in less than 10 seconds
  • The efficiency of the token’s value recognition exceeds 99%.
  • A single robot can be used by an entire team. Retrieval requests are queued and processed one after the other in FIFO (first in first out) order

Q-Bot is for all IT professionals who want to significantly increase the quality of their applications by automating the most critical feature test cases that until now have been either manually tested or ignored.

Testers, developers, project managers and generally anyone who is committed to delivering quality applications to their users must be able to automate two-factor authentication.

With Q-Bot, they won’t have to spend hours continually testing critical functionality by hand and can focus on higher value-added quality control activities.

The first version of Q-Bot was designed to work with the tokens of the Luxtrust brand, leader on the authentication market in Luxembourg. In its second version, Q-Bot supports the vast majority of physical tokens on the market.

If you want to know if your token works with Q-Bot, do not hesitate to contact us by email at or by phone at +352 20 21 17.

In a future version, Q-Bot will also support dual authentication on all types of smartphones.

Q-Bot is offered through a rental contract at a rate of 590 EUR per month all inclusive. This price includes technical assistance and replacement of the robot in case of failure.

Yes, technical support is included with Q-Bot.

Once Q-Bot is connected to the corporate network and accessible by the testers’ machines, the recovery of the token value can be tested immediately from the web interface.

In a second step, the Q-Bot API should be used from an automated test case. A GET call to the Q-BOT API retrieves the token value in a few seconds. All test automation technologies like selenium,, cypress, appium, robot framework, cucumber, etc. allow to make API calls. Finally, you just need to use the appropriate method to call the Q-Bot API, retrieve the token value and insert it in the OTP field of the application’s authentication form.

Q-Bot works with a mini-computer the size of a credit card from the Raspberry Pi brand. This mini-computer, which runs under Linux, coordinates all the processing required to recover the value of the token.

When Q-Bot starts, its web server starts automatically. The latter is listening.

The processing of a request always follows the following actions performed by the different components inside the Q-Bot:

  1. The actuator presses on the button of the token to light it
  2. The leds light up to illuminate the screen of the token
  3. The camera focuses on the token screen and takes a picture
  4. The leds go out
  5. The actuator presses on button of the token to extinguish it
  6. The token value recognition program processes the photo and returns the value

Q-Bot requires a connection to the corporate network to be accessible by automated test cases. However, it does not need an internet connection because all operations are performed locally on the robot. Q-Bot takes a picture of the token with the OTP value and with the help of a Computer Vision type image processing, recovers the OTP value. Before returning this value to the test case, the photo is deleted from the Q-Bot. This way, no files or information are stored on Q-Bot.
