Privacy and Security

When using Outerbridge Cloud Hosted Application (instead of self-hosting), we take security and privacy seriously. Below, we outline how we handle specific data and what we do to secure it.

Encryption of traffic, TLS (SSL) Certificates

Traffic between Outerbridge client web application at and backend services is encrypted in transit. SSL Certificate is generated and kept securely in AWS Certificate Manager.

Encryption of data

Outerbridge Cloud is hosted on Amazon Web Services AWS on US regions.

API keys and OAuth credentials are encrypted at rest and securely stored in the production databases. These databases reside in a virtual private network (VPC). Backups of that database are also encrypted.

The encryption keys are AWS managed KMS. KMS keys are 256 bit in length and use the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in Galois/Counter Mode (GCM). Keys are automatically rotated once a year. KMS has achieved SOC 1, 2, 3, and ISO 9001, 27001, 27017, 27018 compliance. Copies of these certifications are available from Amazon on request.

Encryption of wallet

Wallets are needed to execute transaction on chain. For instance, swapping tokens, execute smart contract functions and etc. Each wallet has a unique private key that is used specifically to sign the transcaction.

For wallets created and imported on Outerbridge Cloud, the private keys are securely stored in AWS KMS.

A dynamic IAM policy is generated for each user to grant access for key creation, encryption and decryption. A specific key policy is assigned to each key, with limitation that only the specific user has access.

In other words, to access the key, users must have a dynamically generated IAM policy from their credentials, AND the key must has the right policy that only limited to that specific user. You can read more about the technique here.

This ensure that user who created the key is the ONLY one who has access to the key, not even Outerbridge nor AWS. You can read more about AWS KMS security concern here.
