Need more info on the security architecture

Postby interfasys » Fri Jan 15, 2010 11:49 pm

My understanding of the way things work with TMX now, is that my data gets encrypted before being sent to the servers and that once stored there, nobody can ready any of it because one needs my login and my password to be able to decrypt it.
Since the login and password are stored on Rexwireless' servers, I'm assuming the company's employees and contractors have access to my data and so would hackers of the server containing that information.
If that's the case, would it be possible to get an additional level of security by allowing us to provide our own encryption key that isn't stored anywhere?
If it's not the case, could you elaborate on why it's not?

I've read the faq, but I'm still missing a bit of extra information. I'm used to the way cloud providers like Rackspace do it. One password for the service and one password for the vault itself.
