Security of our on-line services
Measures taken by the Ministry
The Ministère uses
the SSL security protocol as it ensures confidentiality and the integrity of
the documents transmitted between your computer and the Revenu Québec
During transmission, this protocol transforms your data into an encrypted
code that is impossible to read (128-bit encryption). Your data thus
encrypted are then transformed back into readable data once at their
destination. Encryption is a process that converts information into a secure
format for transmission.
The SSL protocol can also check the identity of the parties (user and Revenu
Québec) who are communicating via the Internet.
The Ministère has
servers that securely store user data.
