AeroFS Security Overview
Security is at the heart of everything we do at AeroFS. This page briefly describes AeroFS's security and cryptography considerations and protocols.
Hybrid Cloud vs Private Cloud
We'd like to take a moment to make the differences between AeroFS's Hybrid Cloud and Private Cloud models as clear as possible before diving into the details.
In the Private Cloud deployment model, absolutely no data or communications should happen with AeroFS servers. Period.
In the Hybrid Cloud deployment model, we do not store any file data on our own servers and strive to reduce the overall amount of communication that happens with our servers, but some communication is still necessary (e.g. for account creation, email notification and so on). These communications are outlined below in detail.
