Encryption for Jira

Encryption for Jira Server

Encryption for Jira is the leading app for protecting your sensitive data in Jira. It provides an extra level of security by encrypting your attachments and custom fields within Jira, giving you peace of mind and helping you comply with data protection policies, regulations, and laws. Encryption for Jira uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) method of encryption.

Custom Fields

The encrypted Custom Field function in Encryption for Jira enables you to secure particular sections of sensitive text data. Encryption is performed before its value is stored in the database. This protects the custom field data values and prevents them from being retrieved by the database administrator.

Encryption Method: AES


Prevent the unwanted sharing of sensitive data in attachments, including PDFs, images, or text files. Encryption for Jira gives you the flexibility to encrypt attachments from selected projects or to encrypt all attachments at once.

Encryption Method: AES

It’s recommended that Jira is using the HTTPS protocol.

HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data between the user’s computer and the site. Users expect a secure and private online experience when using a website. We encourage you to adopt HTTPS in order to protect your users' connections to your website, regardless of the content on the site.

Before you can start encrypting your Jira data with Encryption for Jira, you need to generate your encryption keys.
