Announcing @VirgilSecurity to Exhibit at @CloudExpo | #Cybersecurity #IoT

The Virgil Keys Service consists of a public key service and a private key escrow service

SYS-CON Events announced today that VirgilSecurity will exhibit at the 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Virgil consists of an open-source encryption library, which implements Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) and Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES) (including RSA schema), a Key Management API, and a cloud-based Key Management Service (Virgil Keys). The Virgil Keys Service consists of a public key service and a private key escrow service. 
 

See Virgil's Technical Specifications for the up-to-date list of programming languages and platforms supported by our library. Generally all modern platforms and programming languages are supported.

Developers have full control over how private keys are generated, stored, and synchronized on end-client devices. Virgil provides a Private Key Escrow Service that can help backup and synchronize private keys. 
 

Most users are given 3 options:
 

Easy: In this mode the Virgil Private Key API is used to store private keys associated with the user/app combo. Virgil stores key in encrypted (not hashed) format; however, we also maintain a hashed "password" that is used to decrypt the private Key Bundle. This mode is the least secure and requires end-users to trust Virgil. It also allows Virgil the ability to reset a user's Key Bundle password.
 

Normal: End users are given an option to store an encrypted private Key Bundle for backup and device synchronization purposes. Virgil cannot reset this password and cannot recover the private key bundle should the user forget the string used to encrypt the bundle.
 

Enterprise: In this mode the developer runs their own Private Key Escrow instance or end-users manage their private keys manually. There is nothing stored by Virgil except the corresponding public key for each private key.
