Whistleblowing – Infrastructure and Application Security
Reports and whistleblowers’ safety
- Asymmetric cryptography on textual contents and “attachements”. Encryption does not require specific actions by the anti-corruption supervisor or by the whistleblower or any interventions by system administrators. The cryptographic system guarantees that messages and their attachments can only be read by the sender and recipient through the pairing of the “public and private cryptographic key”.
- Transmission of the digital fingerprint of the message (hash) to the whistleblower e-mail, ensuring the unchangeability of the reports.
- Login with smart card.
- Two-factor authentication and login through biometric credentials (fingerprint, FaceID, etc).
Software safety and Infrastructure
Delivered by DigitalPA dedicated Servers: Maximum data security and protection at the highest levels, guaranteed by the DigitalPA ISO 27001/2014 certification and by the certified server farm infrastructure ISO 27001/2017;
Testing on the system vulnerability and safety through best practices;
All requests managed by the platform are protected by CSRF token;
Limited access to client’s IP addresses list. The platform can then be accessed from the internet or exclusively from the intranet;;
Whistleblowing is only accessible through HTTPS (Secure Sockets Layers);
Hardware and Software: each platform has an integrated firewall with very strict rules, which limit accesses and actions to the software. The firewalls integrate and enhance security;
User input validations
The platform is built with a user validation – based approach. Through extremely strict rules the user input is verified both at a client/server level;
IP / SSL Certificate
IP and SSL certificate: dedicated for each customer;
