All content stored within our infrastructure is secured both in transit and at rest using the latest in end-to-end encryption technologies. To illustrate let's follow a simple account setup process:
Now that you have your account setup you can upload your first file:
Important takeaway thoughts:
Yes and well no, but allow me to explain. There is one case in which SecureTribe staff can access files within your Tribe, and that is if you or someone else authorized to access your Tribe "flags" a file as illegal or inappropriate. In that case, the SecureTribe app "invites" a highly specialized (and access restricted account) into the Tribe. Doing so allows senior technical staff at SecureTribe to evaluate the Tribe for possibly illegal files. In the case that potentially illegal content is found, the information is forwarded to law enforcement. If nothing is found, the SecureTribe account is unsubscribed from your Tribe and no longer has access to the files.
You might be wondering. "Wait a second. How can the SecureTribe app invite itself to my Tribe if supposedly they don’t have the keys”. That is an excellent point and the reason it is brought up here. It is true we DO NOT have your keys, and we have absolutely no way of "figuring them out." But if you have authorized someone to see your Tribe, they do have a copy of the keys for that Tribe. For that reason, when they Flag a file, they are securely transmitting a copy of their key of that specific Tribe to us.
Aside from this situation, there is absolutely NO WAY anyone (including SecureTribe staff, nor NSA hacker-dudes, nor Russian Mob hacker-dudes) can access your files. PERIOD! Basically, do not share illegal content with others because you never know who might turn you in.
As explained above your data is always encrypted during transport and storage on our servers. SecureTribe uses TLS to protect information while in transit across the Internet. Additionally, we have implemented TLS1.2, HTTP Strict Transport Security, and Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) to further support data protection. You can review an independent review of our website SSL/TLS protocols from SSLLabs.
