AES-256 Encryption

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)

AES-256 is regarded as uncrackable.

It is estimated that using currently available technology, AES-256 would take in the region of a billion years of computing time to crack the cypher.

BoardCloud uses AES-256 bit encryption to encode all uploaded documents.

File names and user names are also encrypted to further obfuscate company data stored on the platform.

"At present, there is no known practical attack that would allow someone without knowledge of the key to read data encrypted by AES when correctly implemented." Wikipedia

What is AES encryption?

Developed by the NIST (United States National Institute of Standards and Technology) in 2001, AES has evolved to be one of the most popular encryption methods currently in use. AES is a symmetric block cipher using the same key for both encryption and decryption operations. It was originally developed by a pair of Belgian cryptographers, Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen.
