It is very easy to encrypt data for secure storage in the Cloud and requires only a few steps. In this tutorial we will show a user how to fully (end-to-end) encryptEncryption is the process of encoding a message or information in such a way, that only authorized parties can access it more ... data for themselves. In this 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?
You already know why you should care about your privacy, even if you think you have nothing to hide. Privacy is even more important when it comes to cloud based storage. You trust the service you sign up for to keep your files safe, secure, and away from prying eyes. If their servers ever get hacked, you want to know your files are safe. So you need to encrypt data for secure storage in the Cloud.
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 every platform and language.
In order to create encrypted storage, 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 must register users and provide full 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
- Secure encryption and decryption
- Register application specific Virgil Cards
