What is Machina?

Machina is an authorization engine with key management services that allow any developer to add high-value data security to their application with a few lines of code. With no background in cryptography, you can quickly and confidently add data access policy and management to your application that provides:

  • Granular, real-time access control to protected data, using a consistent policy framework across all of your applications
  • Data encryption using AES-256 CTR or GCM
  • Visibility into all successful and unsuccessful access to protected data, including the full context (requesting user, device, location, application, date and time of day)

Getting to Know Machina

Machina provides a highly scalable architecture for protecting and managing access to sensitive data. The platform consists of four API collections that a developer should understand when writing a Machina application:

  • Key Management: create and request symmetric keys for the protection of sensitive data (Machina currently supports AES-256 CTR or GCM symmetric encryption by default)
  • Data Markings: create and modify attributes for policy comparison
  • User & Policy Management: maintaining users, groups and data access policies through SCIM and XACML compliant protocols
  • Analytics: access to detailed logs about the creation and consumption of Machina-protected data

Using RESTful APIs and SDKs in Machina Tools, developers can easily add data security capabilities to applications that run on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android devices using a variety of common programming languages.
