How Vahana helps to avoid MIMA (Man in middle attack)

Is there a measure in place to prevent Man-in-the-Middle attacks in Vahana? If so, could you kindly provide the relevant information?

As a Low Code No Code developer, is it necessary for me to establish a separate setup to incorporate this security feature into my application, or is it automatically handled?

Let us first understand what is Man in the Middle attack is?
A Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack is a type of cybersecurity attack where an unauthorized third party intercepts and potentially alters the communication between two parties who believe they are directly communicating with each other. In this attack, the attacker positions themselves between the legitimate sender and receiver, effectively “sitting in the middle” of the communication channel.

How Vahana avoids it?
Vahana implements several layers of security to avoid MITM

  1. It communicates over HTTPs protocol for secure communication
  2. Every request / response is hashed and only the client or server can decrypt it.
