Important Update Notes

Introduction of 'Security Modes'


Until now users could decide between QUICK or the One-Time-Password mode in order to protect a Cryptshare Transfer. This update unifies these modes under the term 'Security Mode' and introduces the new mode 'Electronic Identity (eID)'.

Under Security Modes → Default Preset new controls have been introduced for specifying the Security Mode preset for new policy rules.

User Interface


The former controls for switching between One-Time-Password and QUICK have been replaced by new toggle buttons.

New security mode 'Electronic Identity' (eID)


The new security mode 'Electronic Identity (eID)' has been introduced. It allows protection of a Cryptshare transfer by verifying the identity of the recipients and guarantees a full audit trail by also verifying the identity of the sender. Please find detailed information about this security mode in the chapter Electronic Identity (eID).

Prerequisites for Electronic Identity

  • Electronic Identity is only activated for Enterprise Plus Licences. If you already have an Enterprise Licence, but the feature is not available yet, please get in contact with your Cryptshare sales representative in order to request a new licence file.
  • Electronic Identity at the moment only supports the Identity Provider 'Swedish BankID'. Users need to have a Swedish BankID account and a corresponding personal identity number.

Hostname needs to be able to be resolved

Due to internal changes, starting with this update the hostname of the OS the Cryptshare server is running on needs to be able to be resolved. Usually this is already the case, but if you customized the hostname e.g. on a Linux machine, please ensure the following works:


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.

Delta-File for changed passages

In case your language packages have been modified, the attached delta-file  delta_english_lp_4.10.0_to_5.0.0.txt can help you to locate the changes in this update and re-apply the modifications.
