Data encryption is essential to ensure protection
against a server breach.
All data on this website is
encrypted with a minimum 128-bit (256-bit where applicable) RSA encryption
technique, providing the highest level of security for your data.
Encryption typically uses a public and private key
methodology. The public key is given out but the data can only be viewed
by using a private key to decode the information. This key will only be located inside the
firewall at the school district. If a breach does occur on the server
hosting the application, the encrypted data could not be discovered without also
having the private key.
We digitally sign all
information transferred from SchoolLunchApp.com
to your district’s central
office. This information has a unique code that only can be received and
decoded by the district office administrator. This signature ensures we are:
- Receiving the file we expect
- It is complete
- And not altered
This is an added security measure on the data
transfer while also giving the applications a reliable way to communicate a
successful or unsuccessful file transfer.
