Emerge Encryption

Emerge has its own dedicated encryption facility, it does not rely on encryption facilities provided by the device. Sensitive data is encrypted using AES 128 (Advanced Encryption Standard) which is the government standard for the UK. Using this method, MIS information is scrambled using the UDID and username, into incomprehensible data that can only be read by the device it has been encrypted for using a unique 128-bit key; i.e. MIS data is securely encrypted, so it can only be decrypted in Emerge for that user on that device.
