The vault by Samsung encrypts all data before making it inaccessible to any other program or service.
The Knox processor will protect important and personal data like as PINs, credit card numbers, fingerprints, and other sensitive information.
The data will subsequently be transferred to Knox Vault storage via the Samsung Knox Vault protocol.
