Implementing Application Layer Encryption in Ruby on Rails applications with Asherah
The public cloud revolutionized the way we store and access data, but it also introduced new security challenges. This is because it involves sharing resources and infrastructure with multiple users, creating a risk of unauthorized access and data breaches. When we migrate our web services to the public cloud, in addition to storage layer data encryption and end-to-end encryption in transit, we implement application-layer encryption to protect customer-sensitive data like Personally Identifiable Information (PII). This article explores how the Asherah Application Encryption SDK works and how we encrypt PII data in our Ruby on Rails applications.
