Does KIV plan to add HTTPS/SSL

Postby curious1 on Sun Nov 07, 2010 8:25 am

Does KIV plan to add HTTPS/SSL given that is is not computationally expensive any more?

Sorry I made a bad assumption.

Firesheep has been in every newspaper and radio for the past week. It has been discussed at coffee at my work. I just assumed everone knew about it.

Firesheep is one click hyjacking of your sesion for specific web sites, but can be easily modified to steal your session on ony other non-HTTPS protected site.

The recommended defence is
"....signing into ..... or other websites that require user authentication, make sure the Web address starts with https ..."

Or just Google "Firesheep"

Edit to add
The Time Colonist article is wrong in the statement:
"... kid's new friend might be hacking into their personal networks and scooping up bank passwords in the next room...."

Firesheep cannot get to the bank passwords since that is protected by HTTPS.

Any reason why my gmail account has https bolded in red with a line through it and my bank account doesn't?

When I first checked earlier I wasn't given a warning the page just showed up like that. Now I am getting the warning page. I
