This portion of the page contains an embedded secure file transfer protocol through Sharefile (Citrix Systems, Inc.). All data is encrypted using the same protocols and algorithms used by e-commerce services and online banking. If you right click in the file box and select “view source,” you will see that this portion of the page has the following base url: https://mpi.sharefile.com/remoteupload/remoteuploadform.aspx?id=73733ca6-4d28-42bf-8417-0bb2eba960d3
To ensure a high level of security for all of our data transmissions, the MPI Client Upload utility utilizes Sharefile (a company of Citrix Systems, Inc). All data is encrypted using a method for transforming data during either transfer or storage so that it requires permission to access. The data is transformed using an algorithm that generates a decryption key that must be used in order to open the data. When transferring sensitive files, it is important to use encryption to ensure that any outside sources cannot read the data contained within the files.
Files are uploaded and downloaded between the end user and the storage tier directly over a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encrypted segment using high grade encryption with no less than 128 bit key strength. ShareFile supports SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0. These are the same encryption protocols and algorithms used by e-commerce services and online banking.
All file transfers through the ShareFile service are encrypted using 256-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL works by establishing a private connection and each end of the connection is authenticated before transfer begins. Data traveling between these endpoints can only be decrypted by the intended recipient by using unique decryption keys.
Files uploaded to ShareFile servers are saved with 256-bit AES encryption. Each file saved in our system has a unique encryption key. When a file is uploaded, it is encrypted before being copied to its permanent storage location. Downloaded files are decrypted before their contents are sent to your browser. The file encryption keys are not stored on the same server with the files themselves, ensuring that someone with physical access to our storage servers has no access to the files contained on their hard drives.
