The previous blog provided a brief overview of the security features that have been built into WebRTC. The following is a summary of the technology eFace2Face employs to maximize user protection.
First, eFace2Face uses SSL certificates on all its servers.Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a protocol for transmitting private content through the Internet. Many sites use this protocol to obtain confidential user information (e.g. credit card numbers). SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server (i.e. website) and browser. When you see the closed lock icon at the top or bottom of your browser, or the HTTPS:// prefix in the URL, it means you have established a secure SSL connection, ensuring that all the information you enter online is encrypted before being sent to the server.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a complementary technology to SSL. In fact, HTTPS is the result of layering HTTP on top of SSL (or Transfer Layer Security – TLS) protocol. It is a communication protocol that ensures secure communication over a computer network with particularly wide deployment on the Internet. eFace2Face uses HTTPS primarily to prevent wiretapping and man-in-the-middle attacks.
eFace2Face also protects consumers and businesses by using the Datagram Transport Layer Security protocol and Secure Real-Time Protocol (DTLS / SRTP). DTLS provides communications privacy for datagram protocols. SRTP is Real-Time Protocol (RTP – an Internet protocol that supports real-time transmission of voice and video) with an enhanced security mechanism that ensures confidentiality and message authentication. WebRTC specifications strictly forbid the use of plain, or unencrypted, RTP.
On top of these highly secure technologies, the business version of eFace2Face provides administrators and agents with a random password generator and password strength verification. To avoid cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, chat filtering checks for erroneous characters before delivering messages.
eFace2Face is working hard to deliver highly secure personalized convenience, ensuring that online face-to-face meetings between consumers and experts remain private, and that all information transferred during calls remains confidential.
