We’re still a long way from fully understanding the impact of the web on society.
And the consequences are often far from obvious, and many web sites and their owners are left to fend for themselves.
So how do we ensure our site is safe for today’s web-enabled, mobile-driven society?
Here are 10 ways to keep the Web safe from malicious hackers, viruses and malicious actors.
Choose a secure connection.
If your site is running on a public network, make sure it is running at a secure location.
When you visit a site using a public link, the website’s server is responsible for providing security for all visitors, including yourself.
However, the site’s operator may decide that it does not want your data to be transmitted over the network.
You can also choose to use a secure link from your own site and store it in a safe place, such as your own email account or on a secure file sharing service.
This is especially important if you are a public figure and have a large audience.
Protect your privacy.
Make sure you’re not sharing your personal information with anyone.
If you share information with third parties, like Facebook or Twitter, make it clear that you don’t want this information shared.
Don’t use insecure or non-standard encryption.
Encryption technology is the best protection against eavesdropping and viruses.
Most modern encryption schemes, such a WPA2-Personal key pair, AES-256, AES256-CBC and AES-128 are secure, but there are also open source solutions like OpenSSL.
However you choose to encrypt your site, it’s important to choose the right ciphersuite.
AES-GCM is a secure encryption scheme and offers an average of 40% better performance than AES-NI.
However many encryption schemes require the use of key length more than 256 bits.
AES is one of the most secure and widely used encryption schemes and can be used to protect most web sites, including Facebook and Twitter.
If a site uses WPA-Enterprise encryption, the company is responsible to provide the public with a signed certificate that can be trusted.
Avoid insecure web applications.
Secure applications can be built using secure web technologies.
For example, Web apps can be developed using the Open Web Application Security Architecture, or OWASP, which is developed by security firm RSA.
OWASPs have proven to be effective in protecting web sites against the most sophisticated attackers.
They also provide more efficient implementations for many modern web browsers.
Use HTTPS Everywhere.
The World Wide Web Consortium, which operates the Internet, is responsible both for the security of web applications and for protecting the security and integrity of the Internet.
Use SSL Everywhere.
Use secure protocols when you need to.
It’s a good idea to install and use HTTPS everywhere on your site.
It is recommended that all websites use HTTPS when you visit their web pages.
This way, your visitors are not forced to rely on the site using an insecure connection, which could be compromised by a malicious attacker.
Avoid using multiple SSL certificates.
If multiple SSL-certified certificates are used on the same site, there is a risk of eavesdropping.
If one certificate is compromised, it could compromise the entire site.
Therefore, it is a good practice to use only one SSL certificate for every website you host.
Use a different encryption scheme for your HTTPS traffic.
If SSL is used for all websites, the same encryption scheme is used on all of your traffic.
However if you have a site that only uses HTTPS for external links, you should only use one of these two approaches: 1.
Use OpenSSL and AES.
OpenSSL is an open source, high performance cryptographic library that provides strong, highly-available, and reliable implementations of cryptography and is used by browsers and servers around the world.
AES encrypts data using a fixed-length key and is a popular choice for secure web applications as it is fast and secure.
2: Use RSA.
RSA encrypts and decrypts data with a symmetric key using a custom, public key.
RSA can be downloaded from the RSA website and is supported by all modern browsers.
3: Use an AES-CBC algorithm.
AES has strong, secure and secure-yet-unbreakable encryption capabilities, but its algorithm is not as fast or as secure as OpenSSL’s.
Therefore it is recommended to use AES-Cbc.
4: Use a custom ciphersuites for each HTTPS link.
There are a number of options available, including HMAC-SHA1, CBC-SHA256, HMAC HMAC, CBC (CBC-SHA-256), and Blowfish.
These can be selected by the site owner or by the security experts responsible for maintaining the site.
5: Use secure authentication.
If the website you are visiting does not use an HTTPS connection, make your site HTTPS-aware.
