The AXEL Network employs multiple layers of security to maintain cybersecurity and keep user content safe. We believe that privacy and security are linked. We aim to provide solutions that lead the industry in both categories. Here’s how we ensure the AXEL Network remains secure:
Digital Shredding. Since our Network has hundreds of decentralized server nodes in various locations. Using a technique we call ‘digital shredding,’ every time a user sends data via our Network, it is split up or ‘shredded’ into many tiny pieces and scattered throughout these nodes. This means that even if a hacker compromises a single node or small group, they still can’t access the full file. This protects your data and prevents catastrophic data breaches.
It’s a core component of our decentralized technology and makes the AXEL Network an innovative system that keeps information safe.
Encryption. Encryption is a hot topic in the cybersecurity field for good reason. Governments hate it, and privacy-focused consumers love it. AXEL uses the trusted AES 256-bit encryption algorithm to protect user passwords. AES 256-bit encryption is the official standard for the United States government and the only cipher approved by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) for use with top-secret information. Ironically, one of the top law enforcement agencies uses the same encryption they decry the public utilizing.
The possible combinations needed to be calculated by a computer to brute force crack the algorithm results in a 78-digit number. Consider that a billion possible combinations are only a 10-digit number, and you start to see how much security the algorithm provides. Experts estimate it would take the world’s fastest supercomputer billions of years to brute force its way through an AES 256-bit key.
Digital Private Property
AXEL is passionate about data security and data privacy. Only the content owners and the users they explicitly authorize can view or edit files stored on the AXEL Network. No personal information or documents will be mined or sold to advertisers. A digital future based on transparency and respect is possible, and we are committed to making it a reality.
The current path leads to a dystopian nightmare where people tolerate mass surveillance from governments and corporations alike. It’s time to take back your rights and assert that your data is private property. A globally connected world is not incompatible with privacy and security.
