More information about configuring Cipher Suites can found by Web Server Configuration.

Pre-Processing is now a policy setting

The pre-processing settings are now part of the policy as well. This allows the configuration of different pre-processing settings per Policy Rule.

Please note, that this change implies, that changes to the global pre-processing settings will not have an effect until they are applied to existing policy rules.

Language Packages

Due to structural changes in the language packages, all supported server language packages will be updated automatically, customized language packages will be removed during the update process (a backup is done before). If more language packages are needed, it is required to download and install them again.

Re-designed download section

The download section in the Cryptshare User Interface has been redesigned in order to provide a user experience most users will be more familiar with and to better utilize larger screens on desktop browsers.

General Changes

  • The interface is now more email client oriented: The transfer subject, sender address and recipient addresses can now be seen on first sight in the head section when the download is shown and this information is now longer hidden in the 'Details' section of this page.
Transfer Subject
Please note, that the transfer subject is only shown here, if logging of the transfer subject has been activated. More information about administrative settings and their effect on the download section can be found here: Effects of Administrative Settings on the Download Page.
  • The layout for the single-file download buttons has changed.
  • The checksum download is now listed along with the single-file download items under 'Further download options'.
  • The viewport width has changed from 600px on desktop browsers to 1024px.

Reply Buttons

There are now 2 reply buttons in the download section, just like the ones most users will recognize from their email client. When clicked, these buttons will either initiate a new transfer replying to the sender of this transfer or initiate a transfer to the sender and all known recipients of the transfer.

Confidential Message

If a transfer contains a confidential message it doesn't need to be opened via the content viewer any more. The message is directly shown in the download screen: 72320017.png

Please note, that this preview still is restricted to the configured maximum size for the content-viewer in the download section. This means, that confidential messages which exceed this threshold will not be shown in the preview.


Transfer Details which may not be relevant for most users, still remain hidden under a 'Details' section. These are:

  • The transfer expiration date.
  • The tracking ID of the transfer.
  • The security mode used to send the transfer.
  • Whether the sender has requested a download confirmation notification.

The state of the details section (collapsed or expanded) is now stored in a cookie, allowing the users to keep their preferred state stored in the browser.

New QUICK features

New role for administrators: 'QUICK' Supporter

A new type of administrator has been introduced. This administrator is only allowed to generate QUICK activation codes. This allows to widen the range of authorized persons who will then be able to help out when a user requests a QUICK activation code while not being able to administer the server.

Client-Verification mode now QUICK compatible

Please note, that this information is only relevant for users of the Cryptshare Java API, the Cryptshare .NET API or the Robot as only for these products the verification mode can be changed.

Until now QUICK Technology could only be used if the sender verification mode was set up. Due to the nature of QUICK and the former way of how the client verification mode was operating, QUICK could not be used together with this verification mode.

CSV Import for Policy Rules

Policy Rules can now be managed using a CSV file. This allows easier administration for large amounts of rules.

Additional Changes

  • Resolved an issue where images in Cryptshare email notifications were not always shown.
  • Resolved an issue where archiving did not properly write files when the file name contained certain special characters.
  • Resolved an issue where the views for the outbound and inbound transfer volume were reversed.
  • Internal project libraries have been updated.
  • The Java Runtime Environment has been updated to v11.0.6
