As part of FIPS 140-2 compliance, Sharetru uses only modules certified by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), a security accreditation program jointly established by NIST and Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC).
Our platform uses AES-256 encryption modules for at-rest protection as well as for SFTP. We use TLS 1.2 for all HTTPS and FTPS transfers, providing you with a file storage and sharing solution that keeps your data secure at rest as well as in transit.
With the publication of The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2, a high set of security standards was established for cryptographic modules used by the federal government in the storage, transfer, and sharing of sensitive information.
FIPS imposes specific requirements developed by NIST for encryption and other critical cybersecurity measures. To be FIPS-compliant, your file-sharing solution has to use cryptographic algorithms and hash functions that meet the standards specified in FIPS publication 140-2.
At Sharetru, we exclusively use components that meet FIPS 140-2 standards for in-transit and at-rest encryption.
