Security and Server Authentication
IATA has implemented multiple layers of strong security measures to protect our Memberís information. Data encryption is implemented using Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL"). The use of SSL provides data encryption and server authentication. We use 128-bit encryption and all data that is transmitted between the IATA Clearing House and the IATA Clearing House member is encrypted before being sent across the Internet.
Each IATA Clearing House web server contains a unique authentication certificate that is a digital document that is authorized by a third party. This ensures that you are communicating with IATA Clearing House Server.
Firewalls and Intrusion Detection
IATA uses firewalls as well as intrusion detection systems to protect our computer systems from unauthorized access.
The Clearing House System has implemented user authentication using usernames and passwords to further restrict access to the Clearing House System to only those IATA Clearing House Members who have been assigned a valid username and password.
