QUIK Software Package ensures integrity and privacy of the transferred data, by providing secure connection between the workstation and the server. The information transferred between the server and client is encrypted, and can be decrypted only with an access key which is unique for each user. An access key is created by each user and is stored separately from the application, on a removable medium, e.g. a flash card. Therefore, multiple users can work on the same computer with QUIK system installed, each having an individual and confidential access to the data. To avoid unauthorised use of the access key, it is additionally protected with a password.
In addition, QUIK has support for
- public/private key authentication;
- various two-factor authorisation mechanisms (RSA SecurID or RADIUS authentication, Windows domain authentication) with a PIN code sent to the user via email or, if the Alert dispatch module is installed, to the user's mobile device via an SMS/push message;
- logging of all transactions and text messages of the users;
- fixed IP-range available for connection to a specific terminal;
- individual security settings for each user, selective approach;
- transactions signed with a digital signature using certified cryptographic tools such as Message-PRO / Signal-COM, CryptoPro CSP, Validata CSP or Bicrypt.
External Cryptographic Tools
Security capabilities can be enhanced by using external certified cryptographic tools for creating digital signatures (sold separately).
* — for the companies that intend to use QUIK server on managed service basis to connect to the Ukrainian exchanges, integration with solutions that use digital signature of certified Ukrainian providers is impossible due to the reasons that lie in the Russian and Ukrainian legislation.
- PIN, a number known only to the user,
- token-key, a number that the token shows on its display.
The user must always keep his token secure. If the token is lost, the person who finds it cannot use it since the PIN is unknown. Similarly, if someone learns the PIN, he will not be able to use it without the token. Moreover, the owner of the token can block it at any time. The token-key can be used only once for authentication. This precludes the possibility of re-using the key in case authentication details have been stolen by an intruder.
