    Best encrypted way to make handnotes on a tablet

    by Anonymous ·

    Hi everyone,

    I can still see a lot of people taking meeting notes on paper . However, this bears the risk of data breaches when losing the paper or the whole bag.

    I had the idea to replace the paper with encrypted tablets. Important for me is that the notes have a strong encryption (maybe even MFA), that it is possible to take hand notes with a digital pen and that there is no online backup of the notes. Means the notes are taken, encrypted and saved only locally on the tablet and nowhere else. The tablet also needs to work without network connection.

    Has anyone an idea with which hardware – software combination this could work best (e.g. remarkable 2 tablet, or iPad Pro, etc.).

    Many thanks in advance!

      Any tablet would do, provided you can download an app that does what you want or write it yourself. So for the hardware there is no “best”, there’s only “yes” or “no”.
      For the app, there might be more, than you choose the one you find “best”.

        Many thanks for your answer. I am looking more for an existing solution, which is as easy as possible and can be rolled out in our company. A development wouldn’t make sense economically because of the limited amount of users (ca. 30-50). Hence, best would be a tablet with a proper UX like the remarable 2. However, there I’m unsure about the strength of the encryption. Also with the iPad, I did not find proper apps, which would do the job security wise.

      Both iOS and Android encrypt files on the device. Recovery is doubtful on such devices today.

      The only reason I can think of why you are searching for such is you haven’t heard how iOS and Android work today with local storage.

        Many thanks for your answer rproffitt. I agree that iOS ecryption can be made quite strong with an alphanumeric password and an enforced respective password policy. However, I would need to go one step further security wise.

        Software: I am looking for an app (may it be iOS or Android), which additionally encrypts the notes, while not backing it up online. Some companies I worked with in the past had self-developed apps with a hardware key for this purpose.

        Hardware: The hand writing experience of a remarkable 2 with the encryption of a iOS/Android tablet would be amazing. I have seen iPad Pro’s with a hand writing foil, which were already pretty ok but still not amazing.

        Do you have a proper idea of a device and an app, which would suit this purpose?

          “The tablet also needs to work without network connection.”

          Since iOS and Android encryption is good enough to have the FBI and other three letter agencies give up I can’t imagine why you need to add yet another encryption. It’s as if you are assuming these two OSes (current versions mind you) are weak.

          On top of that, we choose what to sync to the cloud. But that’s NOT AN ISSUE HERE because you lead with the above requirement.

          -> Next you write that iPad hand writing isn’t amazing. I can only guess you want something as good as you see in movies and TV series?

          Current tablets do what you ask. However it appears you need to spend more time getting to know how these OSes deal with files today when it comes to what’s store in the device’s memory/storage.

      PS. While it doesn’t meet your no network connection ask.
