Open PGP Module
Get strong public-key and symmetric cryptography for secure data transfer and storage.
EFT employs industry-standard OpenPGP technology to safeguard data at rest. The OpenPGP module uses a combination of strong public-key and symmetric cryptography to provide security services for electronic communications and data storage. These services include confidentiality, key management, authentication, and digital signatures. OpenPGP uses a public key and a private key to encrypt data and maintain security.
Below is a simplified example of the file transfer process in which EFT uses OpenPGP to encrypt uploaded data and the off-load capabilities of EFT to move the file to another location.
How it works…
In EFT, the OpenPGP data encryption (or decryption) process is directed by Event Rules that specify how data files are treated in a particular context.
In an Event Rule, when a selected event occurs (e.g., a file is uploaded to the server), if the specified Condition exists (e.g., user is member of group A), then the selected actions occur (e.g., encrypt the file).
