Who owns your data? The common sense answer is obvious. However, strange as it may appear, it is not always you. Almost any concerned third party can search, access, and even take advantage of your digital information.
Only top-grade encryption can remedy the situation. KeepSolid VPN Unlimited® stands for a safe access to the open internet, hence, it offers extremely secure AES-256 encryption to effectively protect your personal data.
Encryption is a process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorized parties can access it. The primary purpose of encryption is to protect the confidentiality of digital data stored on a device or transferring via the internet or other networks.
Simply said, encryption works like a barrier between you and others in the cyberspace, ensuring that no one has access to your personal data except you. It takes some information that makes sense and transports it through a secure, encrypted tunnel where it is scrambled and becomes gibberish. To get the real information back, you have to know a secret key or password that enables you to decrypt it.
KeepSolid VPN Unlimited® team studiously reevaluates possible threats, to provide you with a high-quality service and a strong protection. That is why we offer an extremely secure 256-bit encryption of the military level and considered to be unbreakable by brute force attacks. This statement is confirmed by the fact that the U.S. Government uses AES-256 to protect classified information up to the top-secret level.
KeepSolid VPN Unlimited® offers a variety of protocols, each with unique capabilities and strengths. Consider what protocols your device supports, and whether any of them are blocked by your network. Then, choose the one with a balance between security, online freedom, and speed that best suits your needs.
By default, KeepSolid VPN Unlimited® automatically uses the optimal protocol for your network, but you can also configure your app to use other protocols. Just choose the one you would like to try in your VPN settings.
KeepSolid VPN Unlimited® uses RSA as an authentication method. It is considered as one of the most secure form of authentication. It does not rely on the network, routers, domain name servers, or a client machine. The only thing that matters is access to the private key. The asymmetry in RSA allows a private key to be shared to encode messages without giving any information about the private key to decode messages. Therefore, this public-key may be published online so that anyone can send a message to the publisher, however, only the publisher will know how to read it.
The cryptographic handshake is used to establish a secure connection. Its effect is highly influenced by a private key size. The longer the key is, the more secure your connection is. KeepSolid VPN Unlimited® uses a Diffie-Hellman (DH) method with a minimum 4096-bit key, and Elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE) protocol with 256 bits.
These encryption algorithms are extremely hard to crack, as they allow a key establishment to happen independently of the server’s private key. This gives the connection a forward secrecy. A very useful option that protects your personal data from being decrypted even after the fact the private key is somehow exposed.
