What are Solid's encryption protocols for protecting data and how is this encrypted ?
We use Amazon Aurora encrypted DB clusters that employ the industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt your data (bank account data, ACH data) on the server that hosts our Amazon Aurora DB clusters.
What are the products that power Solid?
Our Immutable Ledger is powered by Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB). It is a fully managed ledger database that provides a transparent, immutable, and cryptographically verifiable transaction log. QLDB encryption encrypts data using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256). Encryption use AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) for managing the encryption key that is used to protect the QLDB ledgers.
How is the database encrypted?
For our Amazon Aurora encrypted DB cluster, all our DB instances, logs, backups, and snapshots are encrypted. We also encrypt the read replica of an Amazon Aurora encrypted cluster. We use an AWS KMS key to encrypt these resources. For more information about KMS keys, see AWS KMS keys in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide. Each DB instance in the DB cluster is encrypted using the same KMS key as the DB cluster.
