Why your exams are secure with easyRadiology
easyRadiology uses military grade encryption to protect your patient’s exams. Only you hold the keys, so not even employees of easyRadiology can access your data.
- Your exams are stored in an encrypted ZIP archive
- The encrypted images are loaded from the server and are decrypted in your browser
- The password is only known to you
- Using latest technologies it is impossible to break the encryption
- The password is never transfered to our server (but remains in your browser)
- You can audit us
More arguments for EasyRadiology
A cryptography professional says…
“Encryption is the single best hope for fighting surveillance of any kind. If all our data, including our communications, were enciphered in this fashion, from end to end…then no government – no entity conceivable under our current knowledge of physics, for that matter – would be able to understand them.”
The keys only belong to you!
easyRadiology does not have or store the encryption keys to your uploaded medical exams. For radiologies special server software is used, which runs easyRadiology on hospital servers. The encryption keys for the exams are issued in a document, which is easy to read and understand for the patients.
easyRadiology uses industry standards for its file format and for encryption, which help to greatly reduce the likelihood of flaws in the code and security breaches. The file format is a standard ZIP and the encryption is performed with AES (256 bits).
No chance for intruders
Even if a hospital server with a local easyRadiology installation is compromised, the intruders will find that patient’s radiology exams are all encrypted and unreadable.
State-of-the-art encryption technology
In an age, where hospital servers are intertwined with the internet, there is always the threat of data security issues such as patient data being leaked out to the open. In our company easyRadiology, we take data protection very seriously, as we recognize that every single radiology “DICOM” file can carry sensitive patient records.
Our company has a track record of security knowledge, particularly with encryption software. Dr. Weihrauch started developing encryption tools during his medical school (“Crypt”, C++) and improved upon his skills with the open source project “NoSSL, JS/PHP”. Recently, he developed a cryptography project specifically for easyRadiology (Net-Core-JS-Encryption-Decryption, .NET Core / JS).
Pay us an unscheduled visit and audit us!
It’s not easy to trust some company on the internet. Therefore, we offer anyone to visit us unscheduled (or scheduled, if you prefer) to have a look at our servers and internet operations. Please bring a laptop and a radiology exam. Then, you can upload the radiology exam’s files from your laptop through easyRadiology while we take you through your radiology exam being processed on our servers! You will be able to track each of the processes and see for yourself that your radiology exam is fully encrypted with none of the patient data stored in our database or on our servers. This is why it is impossible – even for EasyRadiology employees – to access the patient data stored in a radiology exam.
The only thing we ask in return is that you publish your visit and the results online and we can link to it. Then, we can spread the word about our data-conscious processes!
