Currently we use django-aesfield to provide encryption on key fields. We’d recommend more levels of database encryption or file system encryption.

The encryption uses AES to do this.

Encrypted fields:

  • buyers email
  • sellers secret
  • bango signature

The keys per field are mapped in settings. See Setup for more.

Hashed fields

Fields are

  • buyers pin
  • buyers new pin


All requests use OAuth 1.1 which signs the header using a secret key. Requests must be signed with that key or be rejected.
