Highlight Domain & Subdomain for SSL websites in Firefox

Post date: May 27, 2009, 22:05 Category: Security Views: 3518 Comments
Tutorial quote: When you visit a Secure website in Firefox chances are that the FavIcon for the website is replaced with a Green bar with the details of the company. This is because of the default properties in Firefox to display detailed information of the website from the Extended Validation Certificate on the website. However, if the website doesn’t host a Extended Validation certificate then the website URL (link) in the address bar is not highlighted or in otherwords shows as a normal website URL.

How To Set Up An SSL Vhost Under Apache2 On Ubuntu 9.10/Debian Lenny

Post date: January 21, 2010, 13:01 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3464 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article explains how you can set up an SSL vhost under Apache2 on Ubuntu 9.10 and Debian Lenny so that you can access the vhost over HTTPS (port 443). SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layer and is a cryptographic protocol that provides security for communications over networks by encrypting segments of network connections at the transport layer end-to-end. We use the mod_ssl Apache module here to provide strong cryptography for Apache2 via SSL by the help of the Open Source SSL toolkit OpenSSL.

How To Secure An SSL VPN With One-Time Passcodes And Mutual Authentication

Post date: June 30, 2007, 23:06 Category: Security Views: 3385 Comments
Tutorial quote: SSL-based VPNs were designed to eliminate the need for complex configurations on the user's PC. Unfortunately, that was before the dangers of public WiFi networks and tougher regulatory requirements came into being. Thanks to WiFi, many attacks that were difficult are now quite simple. In particular, a man-in-the-middle attack can intercept SSL-encrypted traffic, rendering SSL-based VPNs useless - even if it is protected by a typical one-time password system. The man-in-the-middle can easily feed the one-time password into the SSL-based VPN within the alloted time.
