TopicHow to secure Google Drive from encryption?
Encryption process is used to encode a file with password key. A Google drive encryption software is used to encode files and folders stored in the drive. Google drive encryption process is simple and is completed in few steps.
First of all, a source file is taken. Content of this file is encrypted with AES 256 algorithm. The new encrypted file is then uploaded to the drive and the title remains the same with “syscloud” extension.
This file is now downloaded and decrypted and then it is verified to see if the content is decrypted properly and doesn’t have any corruptions.
Once the verification is completed, the decrypted file is retained after removing the source file.
