Many of our users rightly have questions about the protection of their data and how we fight against hacking attempts.
Our team of developers have the mission to improve day by day security and develop features that will help reassure you.
Shadow protection today:
Apart from the protections related to the fact that your Shadow is hosted on a data center, which we will see a little further, Shadow is, among other things, protected by two features:
1 - We use a system of filtering by IP address, so to return on a
Shadow requires access to its local network.
2 - We also use a proprietary protocol to Blade the "SUFP".
Even if an someone were to extract your data, they would have the additional task of "interpreting" them to be able to use them.
Very soon :
We are developing a "tunnel" system between the data center and your Shadow. Working as the principle of a VPN, it will create a safe navigation road. It will be possible to activate or deactivate it because this solution is intended to add an additional layer of protection when accessing confidential data. This protection is not suitable for gaming.
Examples: Go to your bank's website, access confidential information, enter passwords, etc.
In a more distant future:
We will also create a single-key encryption channel each time you log on. At the moment, the information given by the streamer is in "clear" and with this new system the data of the controller will be encrypted with an SSL certificate.
Shadow VS the World
The difference with a traditional PC is that a Shadow is hosted in our data centers. This means that a team of network and infrastructure professionals is on standby and has much better control tools and protections than the average user.
In the case of an attempt to intrude our Data Centers, an intruder will have to go through our Firewalls and this will be detected by Blade. This will enable us to take the necessary measures. In addition, thanks to our IP address filtering system, it will be necessary to target a specific Shadow.
Less linked to an external attack but related to security, we also plan to allow backup of your Shadow sessions. This will help fight ransomware and other viruses that could block access to your Shadow.
