6. How Is The Data Exchange Between The Client Terminal and ICM Brokers Secure?
Data exchange between the Terminal and the server is performed by encryption based on 128-bit keys. This is sufficient to ensure security of trading. However, besides this system, terminal allows to use one more system: Advanced Security system based on digital signature algorithm of RSA. It is an asymmetric encryption algorithm that implies presence of a public and a private key. Public key can be freely distributed and used for checking the authenticity of a message signed with a private key. Knowing of the public key is guaranteed not to be possible basis for decoding the private one within an acceptable period of time. Decoding of the private key on the basis of the public one will take tens or hundreds of years even with modern powerful computers.
