Database Encryption

Warning

Enclave’s built-in Database Encryption is sufficient to comply with most data regulations, including HIPAA, but we strongly recommend also implementing column-level encryption in your App to further protect sensitive data.

Enclave automatically and transparently encrypts data at rest.

Database encryption uses eCryptfs, and the algorithm used is either AES-192, or AES-256.

Tip

You can determine whether your database uses AES-192 or AES-256 for disk encryption through the Dashboard.

New databases will systematically use AES-256, unless they’re provisioned on Legacy “v1” Infrastructure.
