SSL Encryption Safeguards Document Sharing

iWork.com supports automatic 128-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption which safeguards communication between you, viewers of your documents, and iWork.com. Encryption allows you to securely share your sensitive documents with confidence. Viewers benefit from 128-bit SSL encryption as it safeguards leaving comments and notes as well as downloading documents.

128-bit SSL is a data encryption standard used by many online merchants and banks to protect transmission of sensitive information between two computers. SSL technology is used to encrypt data sent between your computer and iWork.com so that third parties cannot easily intercept and read it.

To further protect your document, you can add a password to documents you share on iWork.com.
