iTwin Connect is built on a new and powerful iTwinPro hardware platform.
Every time the two halves of the iTwin device are paired, they generate a shared crypto key using their on-board random number generator. Using sophisticated on-board crypto algorithms, this shared key is used to generate a session key which protects all data transmitted over the Internet.
iTwin Connect uses Perfect Forward Secrecy to ensure that compromise of a shared key will not allow an attacker to decrypt old recorded conversations.
iTwin Connect creates an end-to-end encrypted tunnel between two computers - for instance between your Trusted PC (at office/home) and your laptop on the go. Each PC requires one half of the iTwin device to be plugged in to establish the tunnel.
All data transmitted is encrypted using industrial strength AES 256 bit encryption using the time bound session keys.
Your Trusted PC can only be accessed if you have your iTwin "key" with you. The iTwin device does not store any of your data and none of your data resides on any third-party server.
