Encryption Standards


My Own Bits uses peer-reviewed enterprise-grade encryption technology to provide full online privacy. Data is encrypted at the source using a thin client application and then transferred via Secure Socket Layer / Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS1) through the Internet to a dedicated, secure, fault tolerant, storage server. The data, encrypted using current peer-reviewed encryption technology (currently AES and RSA), is secured in a way that even us at UberClix and our storage hosts cannot decipher it.

Data can be shared with numerous others using access control managed by the user or administrator, which includes full permission sets (CRUD permissions). Access to user data can be gained by authorized users through a full featured thin client or a web-based portal. The platform is also flexible enough to enable authorized users to interact with their data using any device (mobile, laptop, desktop, or server). The thin client allows data to be accessible even when not connected to the Internet, and automatic synchronization ensures that online data is up to date when reconnected to the Internet. The web based portal provides data access without the need to install a stand-alone application.

As  encryption standards improve over time, the My Own Bits™ server automatically rekeys all online files and updates clients automatically with the new standards ensuring long term online privacy for clients. By adopting cutting edge peer-reviewed encryption technology, data is managed from cradle-to-grave with a high level of security.
