How it Works:
SDS E-Business Server® is powered by PGP encryption, an infrastructure that protects and authenticates data in transit with an unbreakable sequence of keys and signatures.
- STEP 1: The data recipient must send a signed certificate containing a public key to the sender in order to access the data.
- STEP 2: The data sender authenticates the certificate and public key, then encrypts the data with that public key and encrypts a hash and signature with the sender’s private key.
- STEP 3: The data recipient decrypts the data with the recipient’s private key, and decrypts the hash and signature with the sender’s public key.
Finally, the recipient authenticates the data by generating a hash and matching it to the hash packaged with the signature.
