Password Crypt uses state of the art technology to ensure security of your data. Below are some of the technologies in use and the standards that we support. Password Crypt is made in such a way that technologies can quickly be replaced if a flaw is detected.

 


The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), also known by its original name Rijndael, is a specification for the encryption of electronic data established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2001. All single person encryption for Password Crypt use this technology.


Most SSL communication between a web browser and a web server (https) is made with Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). Password Crypt use the same technology to share data between different users. Password Crypt use certificates from LetsEncrypt to ensure that you are connected to the correct web server and secure encryption is in place. See a test here: SSL Security Test

Every vibrant technology marketplace needs an unbiased source of information on best practices as well as an active body advocating open standards. In the Application Security space, one of those groups is the Open Web Application Security Project (or OWASP for short). The Alexandra Institute at the University of Aarhus in Denmark has made a source code review of Password Crypt for support of OWASP guidelines. See a summary here: Security Report
