Data on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is stored utilizing Server Side Encryption (SSE). Essentially, AWS handles the key management and key protection for us. This utilizes one of the strongest block ciphers available, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), ensuring the highest level of protection.
There are two types of passwords that are stored on the system - customer account passwords which are passwords used to log into CodeGuard, and passwords for your credentials (FTP/SFTP, MySQL). Your passwords are stored using a one-way salted hash. These passwords are stored in Amazon’s Relational Database Service (RDS). Your server credential passwords are stored in RDS with RSA 2048-bit key encryption.
All file data is procured for the first backup using the GET command, over FTP or SFTP. Disk I/O is utilized as each file is fetched and transported to the servers. The CPU and memory needed for these processes are minimal. Subsequent backups differ in that they do not require transferring the entire content. This is accomplished by using the “ls – list” command and examining the relevant metadata stored for each file. These elements include: name, size, timestamp, file type, permissions, and last modified date. If any of these fields have been altered, or a new field has been created, CodeGuard will transfer the changed or added file to its servers. In case a file has been deleted, CodeGuard takes stock of this and accordingly adjusts its repository. Once again, since only the updated data files are transferred, the load on memory, CPU and other processes are minimal.
If you ever want to go back to a previous version of your website, CodeGuard will go through your website and ascertains what content is on it. Consequently, it will then push (or pull) the differences which were made to or from your site. This is useful in instances where you might experience a hack that may have affected only your .htaccess. Codeguard’s technology simply replaces the infected file, and leaves everything else unchanged.
