Security & Privacy

Data Privacy

Private by design

When logging into the Forest Admin UI in your browser, you will connect to:
  1. 1.
    The Forest Admin servers to retrieve the Forest Admin UI.
  2. 2.
    The agent to retrieve your data and populate the Forest Admin UI with it.
As your data transits directly from the agent hosted on your end and the user browser, it never transits through our servers.

No 3rd-party Tracking

The Forest Admin UI has an option to completely disable any 3rd-party provider that could track data available from your browser to guarantee the respect of data privacy.



The connection to both servers to the agent and the Forest Admin Servers are protected using 2 different JWT signed by 2 different keys:
  1. 1.
    FOREST_ENV_SECRET to authenticate all requests made to the Forest Admin Servers
  2. 2.
    FOREST_AUTH_SECRET to authenticate all requests made to the agent
FOREST_ENV_SECRET is provided by Forest Admin and ensures your agent interacts with the relevant environment configuration on our end**.**
FOREST_AUTH_SECRET is chosen freely by you and is never disclosed to anyone**.**
The JWT Data Token contains all the details of the requesting user. On any authenticated request to your agent, you can access them with the variable req.user.
req.user content example
"id": "172",
"email": "[email protected]",
"firstName": "Angelica",
"lastName": "Bengtsson",
"team": "Pole Vault",
"role": "Manager",
"tags": [{ key: "country", value: "Canada" }],
"renderingId": "4998",
"iat": 1569913709,
"exp": 1571123309

IP Whitelisting

The IP whitelisting ↗ feature allows you to create a list of trusted IP addresses or IP ranges from which your admin users can both access to the Forest Admin UI and interact with your agent.


You're free to host your agent in the cloud architecture you want to be compliant with your security infrastructure (DMZ, VPN, etc.).
