Our eavesdropping transcripts show that personally identifying information is broadcast in cleartext
by every RFID-enabled credit card we have examined.
Encryption keys, tickets, and credentials must not be exposed in cleartext
in an open operating system--otherwise, the system is only as strong as the OS itself.
Available add-ons that Cleartext
will be offering to the Australian market include the AIM(R) Gateway from Jabber, Inc.
Software feature: It's a really bad idea to store the cleartext
key with the data that the key encrypted.
But that system wasn't working to Grant's satisfaction; not only did it create a host of security issues, such as sending important files in cleartext
, it was also frequently ineffective, as some large documents wouldn't be allowed out of the university's main e-mail gateway.
TransactionShield will leverage multiple encrypting point of interaction (POI) devices deployed in the merchant network and a Merchant Link-hosted decryption system which eliminates the transmittal of cleartext
cardholder data through the entire merchant network.
Even the best firewall settings are irrelevant if an attacker can simply remove terabytes of cleartext
data on disk drives.
For example, users can encrypt the contents of, and attachments to, their outgoing mail and attach a digital signature (which provides assurance that the message has nor been altered); or they can send a digitally signed cleartext
message (which does not encrypt the message but does provide assurance of integrity).
The AirDefense Personal product represents the industry's first and only end-user software agent to protect users of hotspots and other cleartext
networks from wireless-specific risks that could expose private data and transactions.
Using CoreGuard's context-aware access control, UT can define the allowed user/application access combinations, the types of permissible access, and the locations from where data can be accessed, as well as whether the data is in encrypted or cleartext
The Expeditionary Encrypted Data Store solution takes a simple approach: never store mission data in cleartext
When data is stored in cleartext
, curious insiders, contractors or attackers can gain access to sensitive information.
