Under certain circumstances, for example, automated batch processing, Atakama’s Key Shard Server (KSS) can be used instead of a mobile device to approve decryption events. The KSS can be deployed to approve requests based on pre-configured policies that are controlled by the administrator, thereby allowing intended operations to perform file decryptions. The KSS can also be deployed across an organization to allow end users to access encrypted files without the need to perform MofNops on their mobile devices.
The KSS instance and its profile are used to directly support its intended functionality, which is to perform decryptions. The KSS cannot be used to share encrypted files with end users.
Our suggested minimum server requirements for the KSS are 4 cores @2.5 GHz with 8GB RAM.
