HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol via Secure Socket Layer)
Datawitness is a secure site, identified by the https:// at the beginning of the address once you have signed in. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol is the undisputed leader for web site authentication and encryption of transactional data. Information such as credit card numbers and e-commerce orders are secured via SSL on hundreds of thousands of servers around the globe each day. As the first and most widely adopted security protocol, SSL is supported by all major browsers and Web servers.
When connecting to a secure part of a website, signified by “https://”:
- Unauthorized people are prevented from seeing the information sent to or from the site as all communications are encrypted.
- At any time you can use your web browsers certificate functionality to view/verify the SSL certificat ebeing used.
- A picture of a lock will appear at the bottom right of your screen.
- Both the server and client can demand a certificate from each other. If the certificate presented by the server is unknown to the client, the client is free to accept or reject the certificate. This works in both ways.
Each time you send a Datawitness Submission, your recipients receive an email notification with an encrypted link to the Submission. This ensures that only the recipient of the email notification can open the submission.
