Our company (RainVac) uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your order information as additional protection against the decoding of that information by anyone other than us.
We want you to understand that we take security very seriously and our company will take every step to make sure your information is 100% secure.
Once we receive your transmission, we take the same steps throughout the entire process to make sure all information is secure on our systems.
SSL stands for "secure socket layer," a method used to send information securely over the Internet. SSL uses a randomly created encryption "key" to lock the file at the transmitting computer and uses it to unlock the file at the receiving computer. The key is only known by the two computers and is "destroyed" once the transaction is done.
"128-bit" refers to the size of the encryption key. The bits refer to the binary system, based on the number two. Multiplying two by itself 128 times (2^128) gives the number of possible combinations for the key.
An SSL 128-bit encryption offers over 340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 combinations. That is 34 followed by 37 zeros. If a computer can do 100 billion (one followed by 11 zeros) calculations per second, it would take over 100 quintillion years (one followed by 20 zeros) to crack the encryption key.
Increasing the bit by one doubles the strength of the encryption key; a 129-bit encryption has twice as many combinations as a 128-bit encryption.
