Zero knowledge – total privacy and confidentiality

You have complete trust that your data is controlled by you. Files are encrypted on your PC, Mac or smartphone before they are uploaded to the cloud. Access to your encrypted files depends on a private key (that only your organisation possess). Your cloud provider has no access to your encrypted files, they have zero knowledge of your company stored files.

Multi-factor authentication

YDF uses password authenticated accounts and access.
Upon registration, the user creates a cryptographic key pair:

  • A Private Key which is generated and stored on your device and is used for decryption and digital signing of files, and
  • A Public Key which is stored within Your Digital File and is used by the user, the system and other users for encryption and to verify digital signatures.

Owner-controlled 2048-bit encryption of documents

YDF uses industry-standard secure transfer of documents.

Sharing of documents to 3rd parties via secure facilities

To sign and share documents, users must verify their identity. This provides a high level of assurance for all verified users.

To share access to a stored file with another person, Cryptoloc® creates an access record for that person for that file only.

Each time a file is shared with a new person, a new access key specific to that person is created. This means that one stored file could have many different access keys.

If a file is shared with an external party using Cryptoloc’s SecureShare feature, then the recipient only has access to the version of the file at the time it was shared to them. Subsequent updates to the file cannot be accessed by external parties unless the owner uses Cryptoloc® to create a new access key for each new version.

Search for existing users or invite them to join and begin sharing files for free. Revoke access to those files anytime.

Send files to anyone via SecureShare for those who are not authorised users.

Stringent policy for account recovery

The encryption key generated for each file stored via Cryptoloc Technology® is split into three parts. Each part is encrypted and stored separately in the cloud. One part is stored in your cloud access account, the second part is stored by your cloud provider, and the third is stored in the Escrow’s account.

Normally, you need only your part of a file encryption key and the part provided by your cloud provider to access a file stored in the cloud. If you lose your access for some reason, you can recover access to your files on the cloud by requesting an “escrow recovery”.

Your cloud provider cannot re-create access to your files without intervention from the “Escrow”. The Escrow is a trusted third party who can assist you if you lose your private key or if you wish to pass ownership of your files to someone else. Note that the Escrow does not know your private key, they only know how to start a one-way process to “re-key” access to your files for you. This means you can always recover access to your files on the cloud even if you lose your private key or forget your account password. Additional-layer encryption at rest in the cloud

Access restrictions

YDF using Cryptoloc Techology® puts you in control of the files you upload to the cloud. Only you can authorise who can view, modify and download them.

You can share access to different versions of a file with different users, and you can revoke access to various recipients if desired.

Your cloud provider has no administrative control of your files.  As an additional feature, Cryptoloc® allows a full audit and log of all users, changes, uploads and downloads to assist with version control, audit of processes and access.

Files that have been deleted can always be restored. If needed, you can always open a previous version of a document. See which authorised user has uploaded, downloaded, signed or changed a document.


Digital asset auditing and document integrity

Each file stored using Cryptoloc Technolgy® is locked with a different random cryptographic access key so that even if one file’s key is discovered, the same key cannot be used to unlock any other file.

Using the Cryptoloc Technology® system, only the owner of the file can unlock that file; unless they specifically grant access to another person via Cryptoloc Technology’s file-sharing feature.

Each time a file is updated using Cryptoloc Technology®, a new version of the file is locked and stored. This allows file owners to share different versions of the same file with various people if desired.

Files that have been deleted can always be restored. If needed, you can always open a previous version of a document. See which authorised user has uploaded, downloaded, signed or changed a document.

Cryptoloc Secure-Vault

Love the idea of Your Digital File and want a customised version for your organisation, government or enterprise. Cryptoloc Technology can design, build and create you a solution to suit your budget, resources, security and risk management needs.

Your Digital File generates three unique encryption keys for each document and combines these keys to create a Document Encryption Key.
The three components of a file’s encryption key are stored in a way that prohibits decryption by a single entity. This ensures your files remain completely confidential and protected, unable to be accessed by Your Digital File or intruders.
