Security

Security is our Priority! BeAnywhere is a service that aims to provide the utmost security to its users. With all online security issues nowadays, many computers connected to the Internet are vulnerable even if they do not have a Remote access solution installed. At BeAnywhere we share that concern. This is why security is, and will always be our priority. In all the stages for design and development of the BeAnywhere technology, security was the main concern and we sometimes sacrificed features and speed to uphold the Security in our system.

The BeAnywhere Service developed its security system on 3 different layers or security levels. It will not be possible to use the service unless all three layers of security are 100% fulfilled.

LEVEL 1 – USER SECURITY

Right at the beginning of the initial set up, BeAnywhere asks the user to create a password of his/her own to access the service. This password has to be compulsorily constituted by 8 alphanumeric characters, which means that it has to be combined by letters and numbers, or special characters (like, +*- etc.). Apart from this password to access the service, you need to set a second password – the Master Password. The Master Password is created by the user for each computer at the moment of the BeAnywhere Server installation, and can only be changed if the user is physically at his/her computer The Master Password is never known at any time by the BeAnywhere service. It is the user’s exclusive knowledge, so that if by chance it is forgotten the only possibility will be to create a new Master Password, which means the physical presence of the user at his/her computer.

LEVEL 2 – COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY

The BeAnywhere Service ensures that all communications between both computers have a digital signature, this way not allowing communications to be intercepted and/or changed by a third person. All the keyboard commands or the mouse clicks are encrypted and a digital signature is applied to each one, which enables that when the arrival computer receives that information, it is guaranteed essential inviolability.

LEVEL 3 – SYSTEM SECURITY

BeAnywhere uses a RC4 standard 256 bits compatible cipher with a 2048 bit key for encryption between the two computers. This is the same security level used in security communication protocols, like for example the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol which is used for example by the "Internet Banking", or to internet pages dedicated to processing online payments.
