It is very easy to encrypt data for secure communications in a few easy steps. In this tutorial we will be helping two people communicate with full (end-to-end) encryptionEncryption is the process of encoding a message or information in such a way, that only authorized parties can access it more .... In the following example we will be using application specific Virgil CardsEach Card contains attributes associated with the holder of the Private key and are used to prove the ownership of a Public key more ..., which means we will have both a client and server side setup.
Why do we do this?
Due to limited time and resources, developers often resort to third-party solutions to transfer data, such as Twilio and Layer. Typically, such solutions do not have a full cycle of data security that would ensure integrity and confidentiality, thus all of your data could be read by a third-party. Other typical solutions do not have an open source API, which prevents developers from optimizing their code to fit their needs. Virgil offers a solution without these weaknesses.
Why should you choose Virgil?
Unlike others in this field, Virgil Security gives developers open source API with a full cycle of data security that supports almost all platforms and languages.
In order to create encrypted communications, we need to set up both the client and server sides of an application to use the Virgil SDKThe SDK helps take tedious complexity out of coding by providing APIs for all of Virgil Services.. Then we register users who will participate in encrypted communications, and finally, we can provide data integrity, and confidentiality using Digital SignatureA Digital Signature can be used with any kind of message, so the receiver can be sure of the sender's identity and that the message arrived intact more ... and EncryptionEncryption is the process of encoding a message or information in such a way, that only authorized parties can access it more ....
What We'll Achieve
- One way encryption
- Tamper proof signatures
