The WeSendit Masternodes compress the data after upload using the gzip compression algorithm. Once the compression is complete, the file is divided into ten parts.

This is done using the Linux tool 'split', which has the ability to break a file into several parts of a specified size. This division allows the file to be distributed across various nodes, thereby increasing redundancy and the reliability of storage.

In the next step, each part of the file is encrypted individually using the AES-256 encryption algorithm. The key for the encryption is generated from a unique password that is specifically created for this purpose. The encryption ensures that the data remains protected even in the event of potential access by third parties, thus preserving the user's privacy.
