Upload & Encrypt Data

In order to protect the confidentiality of digital data either stored on transmitted through a network like the internet, the encryption data process will help to take plain text into an unreadable format - called “ciphertext”. So that other people will not be able to read the data as Genetic Analyst use an encryption algorithm. Data is encrypted to securely protect data that anyone else cannot access.

During the upload of the result, encryption is done by the Genetic Analyst.

To unlock the result, both the Customer and the Genetic Analyst need to use a “secret” encryption key. When the intended Customer accesses the data, the information will be translated back to its original form. This is called decryption.

The larger the data, the longer encryption takes since it is required to read, encrypt, and transform to unreadable forms.
