Data security and confidential personal information

Abstract [en]

The subject of this master thesis is data security regarding dealing with confidential personal data. The basic idea is to store personal information in such a way that no one but the owner of the information can access the data. This can be achieved by using a personal key that is used for encryption of the data. It is of a great importance to consider the European Union standards regarding security, and electronic surveillance of employees by company managers. The idea is to give employees an opportunity to store their personal data in such a way that neither the director nor a system administrator at the company could see that information. Of course, the data file containing the information might be seen (visualized) by these unauthorized parties, but it shouldn’t be readable. There are three levels of secrecy: high, low and plain. The names are self-explaining and indicate that high means a highly secure encryption, low means a secure but simpler form of encryption and plain means no encryption and the data is in plain text and readable for everyone who is familiar with the language used.
