The CRID identifier is 8 characters long and is composed of alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers). It does not contain any spaces or any special characters.
To avoid confusion, it does not use the numbers 1 or 0, or the letters I, O or L.
This allows for 852,891,037,441 unique identifiers.
All personal data in the database is encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-128). It's also encrypted at-rest and in-transit. The sole purpose of CRID is to "promote data sharing and eliminate data silos". We will never share or sell your information. We don't use 3rd party website tracking cookies, like Google Analytics. The CRID system is installed on secure Amazon AWS servers located in Ireland (EU).
