Encryption Protocol Support in Capture


QAID # 17914 Published

Question / Problem:

Which supported encryption can be used with Kofax Capture?

Answer / Solution:

You can use various encryptions with the different installation types of Kofax Capture:

Central Site/Remote Site

The connection between the Central Site and Remote Site(s) is realized over a HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). You can also switch to HyperText  Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) on the Central Site configuration.


The data on a Client/Server environment is transferred over the network. You can use IPsec to encrypt the data between the Server and Client.

Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) is a technology protocol suite for securing Internet Protocol (IP) communications by authenticating and encrypting each IP packet of a communication session. IPsec also includes protocols for establishing mutual authentication between agents at the beginning of the session and negotiation of cryptographic keys to be used during the session.

General encryption

The following encryption is possible for all Kofax Capture installations:

The Encrypting File System (EFS) on Microsoft Windows is a feature introduced in version 3.0 of NTFS that provides file system-level encryption. The technology enables files to be transparently encrypted to protect confidential data from attackers with physical access to the computer.

EFS is available in all versions of Windows developed for business environments from Windows 2000 onwards. By default, no files are encrypted, but encryption can be enabled by users on a per-file, per- directory, or per-drive basis. Some EFS settings can also be mandated via Group Policy in Windows domain environments.
