CryptoHeaven Security Approach
How is our approach different from the traditional SSL (Secure Socket Layer) approach?
Traditional SSL Approach:
<session encryption> <sender> <recipient> <plain text> <disconnect>
More on SSL.
We take the SSL approach further and encrypt the data with private key of designated recipient before sending it into and through a secured channel. The machine on the other end of the secured pipe is not necessarily the designated recipient who possesses the private key to decrypt data packets:
<session encryption> <sender> <recipient> <ENCRYPTED text> <disconnect>
More on Transparent Encryption Technology.
Taking it even further...
We create a central server to accept the encrypted data when the recipient client is not connected. The server acts as a placeholder and then forwards the encrypted data to designated recipients when they request it.
Server does not have the decryption keys to understand the information sent. Plain private keys never leave the owner's client machine. Server only knows what category the encrypted data belongs to (file or message) and who the designated recipient is.
