Encryption of File Attachments

Files attached to objects in OpenPages may contain sensitive information and requires OpenPages to support encryption / decryption of these files.


This request was intended in the existing idea OPP-I-278 (Support for Encryption of Files / Encrypted File System) which is marked as delivered, although the file encryption is not available in OpenPages and the suggested alternative of using file system encryption does not meet our requirements.


The reason this idea does not meet our requirements is further clarified within the comments from OPP-I-278:


"Infrastructure layer encryption is useful, but what it doesn't do is protect the files from users who gain access to the server where the encrypted volume is mounted / NAS back-end, and hence can then read each file.

The application support team for OpenPages may be (often can be) different to the Red Hat OS support team or the NAS support team. We need a way to protect the files from these threats, and encrypting each file would certain help."
