Encryption for Jira is the leading app for protecting your sensitive data in Jira. It provides an extra level of security by encrypting your attachments and custom fields within Jira giving you peace of mind and helping you comply with data protection policies, regulations, and laws. Encryption for Jira uses the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) method of encryption.
It's recommended that Jira is using the HTTPS protocol.
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data between the user's computer and the site. Users expect a secure and private online experience when using a website. We encourage you to adopt HTTPS in order to protect your users' connections to your website, regardless of the content on the site.
Before you can start encrypting your Jira data with Encryption for Jira, you need to generate your encryption keys.
