Key Shadowing is a patented secret sharing technology that permits a master key to be created, used to protect data in flight or at rest,“shadowed” into any number of parts, and then destroyed. The master key is never persistently stored. When the data needs to be accessed, a pre-defined number of the shadows (current options are 2, 3, or 4) must be used to regenerate the master key.
