How do you work with SecurityNet?
You have multiple ways to invoke SecurityNet
Use the point-and-click screen to select your contact and the files to send. Or....
Use Windows to drag and drop files into a predefined SecurityNet folder. Or...
Configure your in-house applications to write their files to a SecurityNet folder.
How to use SecurityNet?
As you install SecurityNet, you must choose a SecurityNet ID for yourself – this SecurityNet ID will become your contact name that you give to other SecurityNet users.
This SecurityNet ID must be unique – like an email address is unique, so your SecurityNet ID is unique to you. In fact, you can use an email address for the SecurityNet ID. As long as it's unique, it doesn't really matter.
Let’s say you want to communicate with 3 other SecurityNet users who also want to communicate with each other – Tom, Dick and Harry. Just exchange SecurityNet IDs, add each other to your Contacts list, and you are up and running.
Now, let's say Tom selects a file to send to Harry...
- SecurityNet will start looking for Harry’s SecurityNet.
- The "Send/Receive" processes sets up an encrypted tunel between Tom’s and Harry
- The file to be sent is encrypted, and the file is transferred securely to Harry
You install it. Your correspondents install it. Add your correspondent to your contact list. You are secure!
- SecurityNet creates your own private encrypted user network over the Internet
- YOU choose your correspondents. No SPAM. No spies. No worries.
- Add more users to your SecurityNet network in seconds, and start exchanging data with each other in total privacy.
And if you don't want to hear from Harry any more, just remove him from your contact list. Easy!
In each case, SecurityNet automatically picks up your files, encrypts them, and sends them on their way directly to their destination. Point-to-point - no "cloud".
SecurityNet will send a file of any reasonable size, assuming you have a fast enough network and sufficient bandwidth.
SecurityNet Protection for In-Transit data
- SecurityNet protects your data in-transit across the internet with AES encryption.
- It connects your Windows device to one or more of your contacts Windows devices.
- SecurityNet calculates an encryption key that is unique to you and each contact at a specific moment in time.
- When you select files to send to a contact, SecurityNet begins checking to see if that contact is on-line and using SecurityNet.
- When your contact is on-line with SecurityNet running, a secure encrypted channel is opened between the two devices.
- Once the connection is made, SecurityNet begins sending each file from your device to your contact’s device, encrypting the data in-transit using AES encryption.
- On transfer of each file, an activity log is created on both devices. Once all files have been sent and received, a notification pops up advising of successful data transfer.
- In the event of an error – lost network connection, for example – an error is logged and SecurityNet retries until the file transfer is successful.
