With a necessary and relieving update, we’ve made things a whole lot more secure in Resurva using High-Grade SSL Encryption (Camellia-256, 256 bit keys) to protect your usage.
Seems like a bunch of mumbo jumbo so let me break it down a bit and reveal some of the benefits.
Basically, anytime you visit a web page, you are susceptible to session eavesdropping, where a “middle man” can see your session, and get access to what you’re doing. You may remember a while back, there was a scare because of a Firefox pluging called Firesheep. This caused for a lot of the big web based applications to start forcing SSL connections to their applications.
The Firesheep plugin was intense because it would allow you to see all of the sessions currently running on your network. So, if you were at Starbucks and a few people were on Facebook, you’d be able to boot up Firesheep, see someone’s FB session and then essentially post as them.
You can rest assured with Resurva as we now force SSL browsing at all times, so your interaction is hidden behind heavily encrypted code.
