Vote "No Confidence" In SSL

Written by Erich Heintz

Continued from page 1

My second concern wasrepparttar high emphasis onrepparttar 143557 use of SSL, more commonly known as “the little lock in your web browser”. The Federal Trade Commission lists it first in their “Shop Online Safely” bulletin which, in my opinion, overemphasizes its weight.

Once upon a time, SSL certificates were expensive and there was a relevant vetting process involved in having one issued. This has created a false belief that an SSL certificates contribute to a website’s legitimacy. In reality, a SSL certificate can be had for as little as five dollars by anybody who has a telephone number. An expensive Thawte or a Verisign issued certificate provides no more or less security than their cheaper counterparts. In fact, they don’t provide any more security than a “bad” certificate either. An expired or un-trusted certificate is equally effective at encrypting data as a premium cert. Many security and IT professionals work with these “bad” certificates everyday with full confidence that they are servingrepparttar 143558 purpose they need them to. SSL Encrypts Online Web Communications


Forrepparttar 143559 most part, SSL serves one function only; it secures repparttar 143560 communication between your web browser andrepparttar 143561 vendor’s web server atrepparttar 143562 time your data is transmitted. In reality, even this isn’t necessarily true. I’ve recently become aware that some SSL implementations haverepparttar 143563 option to setrepparttar 143564 encryption cipher as “plain text”, meaning that in spite of repparttar 143565 presence ofrepparttar 143566 lock, no encryption actually takes place.



In a nutshell, technology is not a substitute for due diligence. The presence of SSL should never be a weighing factor in deciding to purchase from a vendor, althoughrepparttar 143567 lack of it should be an immediate red flag to take your business elsewhere.
