The Data Encryption module in Kaspersky Total Security is designed for protecting confidential information against unauthorized access and data leakage.

To protect your personal data, the mechanism of Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) is used. It means that data is stored in an encrypted form in a special container. Vault is an encrypted container created by the user with the Data encryption component.

Vaults are encrypted with the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) block cipher with the effective key length of 56 bit.

A password is required to access the data stored in the vault. An installed copy of Kaspersky Total Security is necessary to access the data.

When you access the protected container, data stored in the container are automatically decrypted in RAM. When you complete the session, they are automatically encrypted.
