Form Encryption: Matrix field not decrypting completely

    Asked on May 12, 2016 at 05:20 PM

    If I am connecting to the site via SSL why not let me see the unencrypted data you storing? I'm connecting to your server via SSL so "technically" safe. Makes no sense to encrypt at the browser just for me to upload my private key  and allow the browser to decrypt.  This might be ok for archive type purposes but is useless with reports and csv downloads. 

    Speaking of CSV... I want a CSV which your system can't handle for some reason. Just spit out a fully encrypted file that I can use openssl and my private key to decrypt!   Better yet, send me a email with the encrypted data.  I can then parse the data using my private key. 

    Why do you send my data over the internet in the clear but can't handle CSV and reports. Sending me an email that isn't encrypted is NOT SECURE!

    Why not encrypt my email using my public key using s/mime or similar technology?

    Since my private key doesn't get uploaded to the sever I assume this is using javascript to read and decrypt. Seems like you can make a button to paste data into clipboard as well.


    After uploading my private key and viewing the submission the matrix widget doesn't decrypt. Why?

    Can you please be more specific which files you're unable to see?

    Regarding the data we store, all submitted data on our server is secure. Data transferred from your browser to our server will also be secure when you use SSL/secure form URL to accept a submission. We support high-grade 256-bit encryption.

    More about Encrypted forms you can find on this link.


    Question about CSV I moved to the new thread since it is a separate issue. We'll follow up in this thread.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks for quick response. 

    See image.  The submission page shows both encrypted and unencrypted data.

    Why is matrix not unencrypted?  Bug?
