Devolutions Send Standalone

DevolutionsSendLogo

Devolutions Send Standalone features a secure method to generate a link to share secrets instead of using insecure email to send sensitive data.

Features

The in-app version of Devolutions Send is currently under development and will be progressively deployed in Remote Desktop Manager, Devolutions Server, and Devolutions Hub. More information will come in the future.

Despite sharing the same underlying architecture, slight differences exist between the feature set of the standalone and in-app versions of Devolutions Send.

  • Unique short-lived (24-hour) link encrypted on the client side.
  • Optional protection via a client-provided passphrase.
  • Users may be non-Devolutions users (not linked to a Devolutions Account).
  • Character limit of 10 kb.
  • A sender email is required and stored with the GUID as part of the “payload” stored in the database.

Technical details

The core tenant of Devolutions Send is that Devolutions itself cannot decrypt the user's secret. This is accomplished via client-side (browser) encryption through a Rust program compiled to WASM (WebAssembly) in-browser. Therefore, Devolutions does not hold the encryption key and cannot decrypt the data.
