Backup Securely with Backup Professional
by Berislav Kucan - Monday, 16 December 2002.
Backup Professional makes use of the SSL protocol standard for secure data transmission (1024 bit RSA key exchange, 128 bit RC5 stream cipher and SHA-1 integrity checking). Data is stored using 448-bit Blowfish encryption in CBC mode. Encryption keys are not stored with the data and globally recognized techniques are applied to ensure the integrity and security of all data protected with Backup Professional.

While asked on the process of further backups, Mr. Davies said: "Because of the automation, the next backup will compare the last backup to the current data set and extract on the binary level the changes that have occured. These changes are then compressed and encrypted and shipped to the server."

The Backup Professional client is written in Java, and the server software for runs just on Microsoft Windows NT and 2000 operating system. The good news is Attix5 is in process of porting the server software to Linux. For testing the demonstration version of the product, visit Attix5 web site and check Product Demo section.
