Thank you for joining WIFIPLUG users’ community.

Data Protection

WIFI PLUG does not have access to a customer’s master password nor does WIFI PLUG have access to the records stored within the Amazon cloud. WIFI PLUG cannot remotely access a customer’s device nor can it decrypt the customer’s data. The only information that we have access to is a user’s email address, and devices MAC code. If a user’s device is lost or stolen, WIFI PLUG can assist in restoring the user’s data once they have replaced their device.

Information that is stored and accessed in WiFi Plug app is only accessible by the customer because it is instantly encrypted and decrypted on-the-fly on the device that is being used – even when using the WiFi Plug Web App. The method of encryption that WiFi Plug uses is a well-known, trusted algorithm called AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a 256-bit key length. AES with a 256-bit key-length is a military-grade level of encryption and is currently approved by the U.S. Government to encrypt highly-sensitive information. Per the Committee on National Security Systems publication CNSSP-15, AES with 256-bit key-length is sufficiently secure to encrypt classified data up to TOP SECRET classification for the U.S. Government.

The cipher keys used to encrypt and decrypt customer records are not stored or transmitted to WiFi Plug’s Cloud Security Vault. However, to provide syncing abilities between multiple devices, an encrypted version of this cipher key is stored in the Cloud Security Vault and provided to the devices on a user’s account. This encrypted cipher key can only be decrypted on the device for subsequent use as a data cipher key.

Strong Master Password

It is highly recommended that customers choose a strong Master Password for their WiFi Plug account. This Master Password should not be used anywhere outside of the WiFi Plug app. Users should never share their Master Password with anyone.

Two-Factor Authentication

To protect against unauthorised access to a customer’s account, WiFi Plug also offers Two-Factor Authentication. Two-factor authentication is an approach to authentication requiring two or more of the three authentication factors: a knowledge factor, a possession factor, and an inherence factor. For more information on Two-Factor Authentication see this link.

WiFi Plug uses something you know (your password) and something you have (the phone in your possession) to provide users extra security in the case where your master password or device is compromised. To do this, we generateTOTPS (Time-based One-Time Passwords).

WiFi Plug generates a 6-byte secret key using a cryptographically secure random number generator. This code is valid for about 5 minutes, and is sent to the user by email.

When using the authentication, it is never communicated to a third party. Each time a user deactivates, then reactivates Two-Factor Authentication, a new secret key is generated.

Client Encryption

Data is encrypted and decrypted on the user’s device, not on the Cloud Security Vault. We call this “Client Encryption” because the client (i.g. iPhone, Android Device, Web App, etc.) is doing all of the encryption work. The Cloud Security Vault stores a raw binary which is essentially useless to an intruder. Even if the data is captured when it’s transmitted between the client device and Cloud Security Vault, it cannot be decrypted or utilised to attack or compromise the user’s private data. Breaking or hacking a symmetric 256-bit key would require 2128 times the computing power of a 128-bit key. In theory, this would take a device that would require 3×1051 years to exhaust the 256-bit key space.

WiFi Plug’s Cloud Security Vault

The Cloud Security Vault refers to WIFI PLUG’s proprietary software and network architecture that is physically hosted within Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure. When the user synchronizes their WiFi Plug with other devices on their account, the encrypted binary data is sent over an encrypted SSL tunnel and stored in WiFi Plug’s Cloud Security Vault in encrypted format.
