ADL Implements Encryption for Data-in-Transit

Encryption for Data-in-Transit

Encryption has been added for the wireless Vital Sign Monitors data transmissions to the Server. The encryption needs to be enabled by the Network Engineers.

Encryption in transit: protects your data if communications are intercepted while data moves between your site and the cloud provider or between two services. This protection is achieved by encrypting the data before transmission; authenticating the endpoints; and decrypting and verifying the data on arrival.

For example, Transport Layer Security (TLS) is often used to encrypt data in transit for transport security, and Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) is used often for email message security.
