PaliApps uses secure third party key management from Scentrics to securely encrypt messages and data. Using SEnDs as an example, these are sent over traditional communication channels such as SMS and Email with one-click encryption and control who sees data, wherever it is.
SEndS secures your messages without changing the way you communicate. This means:
Messages are sent using a cryptographic system that encrypts and authenticates the messages. The process is illustrated below and shows how the sender’s phone uses a secret key to encrypt the message making it indecipherable. The receiving phone can then decrypt the message. The uniqueness of the service is where the keys are stored and how they are made available to the intended message recipient.
The role of the authentication tag is to guarantee to the recipient that the received e-mail or text message is identical to the original transmission. Only somebody who has the secret key can create a valid tag. This means that when your phone verifies the tag, you know that the sender had the secret key and that you are indeed communicating with the right person.
For encryption and authentication, we use the AES-EAX standard and for optimum security we use the maximal possible key size, which is 256-bit keys. For the secure channel between the user and Scentrics key server we use TLS with 2048-bit RSA keys and certificate pinning that ensures SEndS will only instantiate TLS connections with Scentrics.
In our apps, we use a novel patented Server-centric key management system that eliminates the hassle of key management. Instead of you storing the keys on your phone, the keys are stored securely in cloud and provide the keys to your phone exactly when needed. One advantage of this solution is that your data is still secure even if your phone is stolen, as the keys are not stored with the data. Moreover, if you have several phones you do not need to copy keys between them; all keys are automatically available on any phone where you have installed PaliApps products.
Our apps use SaaS based key management for scalability, security and ease of management. One huge advantage is that keys are separated from the encrypted data.
Protect your data against theft by hackers or data breaches by encrypting it
Stop internet companies reading your messages - without encryption keys, they cannot access or scan your messages
Take control of your online privacy, controlled through your personal Privacy Account
Log in once to secure your data from multiple linked accounts including emails, phone numbers and more
Encryption keys are stored in the cloud and not on your device, so if your device is lost your protected data stays secure.
Choose to make any message private, on any device – giving you confidence to send personal data and images to anyone from anywhere.
One click secures your messages from anyone capturing your data, including hackers, email companies and marketeers
With SEndS, your encryption keys are linked to your Privacy Account. The Privacy Account is a new and secure service that aims to give all users easy, single sign-in access to encryption and to control their data.
Think of your online self as a digital estate - from youth, you contribute to this estate with data – selfies, emails, financial data. Given enough time, it's everything you are. The Privacy Account becomes a protected estate so that only YOU can access it - after all, it’s your legacy.
From the Privacy Account itself, you can keep your data under lock and key. Keys are generated for the user and the user alone – keys separated from the content it's associated with.
Login with your Privacy Account wherever you see the “Secure with Scentrics” padlock symbol.
