SmarterHR uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificates to encrypt your information as it is transmitted over the Internet, ensuring that sensitive data remains private.

An SSL Certificate consists of a public key and a private key. The public key is used to encrypt information and the private key is used to decipher it. When a browser points to a secured domain, an SSL handshake authenticates the server and the client and establishes an encryption method and a unique session key. They can begin a secure session that guarantees message privacy and integrity.

Our system uses 128-bit to 256-bit encryption, the highest standard of security encryption normally available. Encryption strength is measured in key length — the number of bits in the key. To decipher an SSL communication, one needs to generate the correct decoding key. Mathematically speaking, 2n possible values exist for a key, where n is the number of bits. Thus, 40-bit encryption involves 240 possible values, 128-bit encryption involves 2128 combinations, and 256-bit keys involve a staggering 2256 possible combinations, rendering the encrypted data practically impervious to intrusion.
