Loom-Systems recommends the following for data encryption:
Data at Rest
While data is at rest, Filesystem-level encryption should be used.
- Users can use the default Filesystem of their operating system.
A Linux user could use dm-crypt, a transparent disk encryption, as a proper solution for encrypting the data at rest.
Data in Transit
Users are advised to use Transfer Layer Security (TLS) protocol while shipping data into Sophie.
