Secure Transmission of Data (Filelocker)
Given the fact that Purdue’s email is not encrypted, it has been a challenge to securely transmit electronically-stored protected health information. Responding to this need, Purdue has developed an open source program, Filelocker, for use by Purdue’s faculty and staff to conveniently and securely share files with other people both on and off campus. In order to access the Filelocker application, the user must login in with their Purdue Career Account and password.
Instructions on how to use this utility are provided for sharing files with both Purdue and non-Purdue users.
