The information age has shrunk the world by ushering in an era of connection. Today, almost anyone can effortlessly and instantaneously share files across the globe. Every other day, we hear about data breaches and user information being compromised. The importance of a secure channel for file-sharing cannot be understated. The Secure File Access app is made up of two parties: the administrator and the user. The admin can use this application to upload and manage files in the application’s database. AES is an encryption algorithm, the file is encrypted using AES, so the file cannot be opened by anyone unless it is decrypted back using the same Key. The file is uploaded to the server then.
The administrator can control who has access to the files. The user can only see or download the file if the admin allows it. Furthermore, the administrator may keep track of which users have accessed the files. The application supports a variety of file types, including jpg, word documents, and PDFs. The admin can use this application to upload and manage files in the application’s database.
This system is a comprehensive bundle of Secure File Access. There are two users in this project, one is an administrator and the other is a user. The administrator can manage users, files, reports, etc. the file is encrypted using AES and the user may only download the file if he or she has access to it. Admin has the ability to grant and remove file access permissions. The file structure list is based on the Directory. The file may be accessible in PDF, Word, jpg, or any other format that the admin has submitted. The user may view the file information after selecting it.
Filename, size, description, and encryption time are examples of such information. All users’ Checked and Downloaded files are visible to Admin. The system displays a graph and a list of the files’ encryption times. The user can alter their profile and change their password.
- Admin has only access to maintain files & store them in the database.
- The file is encrypted using AES, so the file cannot be opened by anyone unless it is decrypted back using the same Key.
- User can only Check or Download the file if he/she has access.
