Service and Support

  • Are the images encrypted in any way?
    • At the lowest level, the image data is not encrypted. The scanning system relies on the security layers of the network.
  • What additional security features are in place?
    • Another security feature of the S2000 Series Scanners is the encryption of the data encoded in the barcode of the EasySetup sheets. We have taken steps to ensure that the setup data that is encoded in this barcode cannot be extracted


      The s2000w Scanners include a “Single User Mode” that will allow only one host PC to access a scanner over a network connection. If the scanner is set up for Single User Mode, the first PC to connect with the S2000w scanner over a network becomes the single “network owner” of the scanner. From that point on, network ownership of the scanner cannot be cleared or charged without resetting the scanner to factory defaults which requires physical access to the scanner.

  • What is the data encryption used to exchange commands, image header data, and images when scanning?
    • When communicating with the scanner using TWAIN/ISIS/WIA drivers, the S2000w Scanners do not apply additional encryption beyond that which is provided by the host PC. The Alaris network scanners support several wireless standard encryption protocols (WEP/WPA/WPA2 personal) and two enterprise level protocols (MSCHAPv2/EAP-TLS) that require certificates.

      When communicating with the scanner using the RESTful API (web) interface, scans are encrypted via wired and wireless protocol during transport using SSL encryption via the HTTPS protocol.

  • What is the data encryption used to exchange commands, image header and images when scanning? (wired and wireless)
    • When communicating with the scanner via the traditional TWAIN/ISIS/WIA drivers the S2000w Series scanners do not apply addition encryption beyond that which is provided by the host PC that is being used. The Alaris network scanners support several wireless standard encryption protocols (WEP/WPA/WPA2 personal) as well as two enterprise level protocols (MSCHAPv2/EAP-TLS) that require certificates. 

      When communicating with the scanner via the RESTful API interface, scans are additionally encrypted via wired and wireless protocol during transport using SSL encryption via the HTTPS protocol.
