Encryption Information is protected thanks to the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol with a 256 bit encryption key. We use the SSL protocol to create a digital channel which permits Orthorepass users to protect their information during transmission.
Each SSL certificate contains a public key where the identification information will be verified. Once the client’s web browser navigates to the site Orthorepass.com, our server shares the public key with the client to establish the encryption method and a unique key and session.
The client confirms that it recognizes the SSL certificate and trusts it. Also known as the “SSL handshake”, this process launches a secured session that protects the confidentiality and integrity of exchanges. A strong 128 bit encryption has more than 300 billion trillion times more combinations than 40 bit encryption, which itself has billions of possible combinations. And only one will work.
Functionally: your browser will try to connect to Othorepass (secured by SSL). The browser will ask the server to authenticate itself. The server will send to the browser a copy of its SSL certificate.
The browser verifies if the certificate is trustworthy. In the case that it is, it sends a message to the server. The server then sends a signed confirmation with the key needed to launch an encrypted session. Encrypted information is then exchanged between your browser and the Orthorepass server.
