Explain how your security works, and are there certificates required?

Celestix MFA (Powered by DigitalPersona) database stores all DigitalPersona user-specific information, such as: user credentials, encryption keys, secrets and public information is stored. The DigitalPersona Server Database is implemented in Active Directory or Microsoft’s Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services can be used.

User security-sensitive information such as user credentials, secrets, encryption keys, etc., are stored encrypted with Digital Persona’s Server Service’s 2,048-bit RSA encryption key. Only the DigitalPersona Server Service has access to this information.

Furthermore, the user sensitive information above is also digitally signed with Digital Persona’s Server Service’s 2,048-bit RSA digital signature key. In this way, only data written by DigitalPersona is trusted by the DigitalPersona Server Service.
