Thanks to this group and all the high tech individuals who frequent it I
have learned how to protect my PC from the inside out. But what about
security risks to my info 'before' it gets to my computer? Like my mail
box on the server. Could someone hack into that and thumb through my
If so, how would I ever know?
(The short story)
We have a rogue employee at my work who one day decided to run the web
site, she got in tight with the ISP, got tools to set and delete
passwords on a protected directory on the server. Who knows if she has
telnet access to other things, li...when is secure, secure?
I wrote a custom authentication handler for PureFTPD, using a combination of
authentication methods, for about 4 different types of users.
So far, from testing it, it does look to work properly, and does it's job
pretty well (and fast). I use #!/usr/bin/perl -W as well as use Strict, and
use warnings, and the code returns no errors or warnings when run.
I am right to presume that this basically only really tells me the my syntax
and structure of the application is right? What's a good way to see whether
it is actually SECURE... There is a couple of lines of...Issue related with secure AuthenticationType i.e. AuthenticationTypes.Secure
So when i use
DirectoryEntry MyDirectoryObject = new DirectoryEntry(LDAPServerString, UserName,Password, AuthenticationTypes.Serverbind);
I can work with LDAP no problem, create new users etc..
But when I use
DirectoryEntry MyDirectoryObject = new DirectoryEntry(LDAPServerString, UserName,Password,AuthenticationTypes.Secure);
I get 2 types of errors
1] Unknown error
2] Invalid dn syntax has been specified.
The user details are correct and they are the user details of the directory manager.
What is going wrong here ?...Security with Active Directory
I am currently authenticating with Windows and that is going fine but I was wondering how I can set up the system to then determine what pages a person can see once they are into the system based on what they have in active directory.
Example: John Doe should have access to the home page and his site specfic page instead of all pages.
Any suggestions would be great or any place that I read up on this subject would also be helpful.
What you are talking about is authorization, rather than authentication. You need some kind of store that will record what authorization John...Active Directory Security

I have implemented ldap authentication in our application
using the sample given in "LDAP using EAServer and
Powerbuilder" document. It is succefully implemented. But
the network people has asked me to connect on secure port
(ldaps) now. My problem is i don't know what i kind of
setting i should do now on EAServer box and what i should do
on the clients. I assume there is nothing to be done on the
client because the call to ldap check is initiated from the
EAServer Server to LDAP server using EJB (calling JNDI API).
We are runnig EAServer on JDK 1.3. Can someone g...Secure connections: how secure are they?
......... both useful and malicious information can be transmitted via network
connections. Standard solutions protect computers against threats present in
standard network connections, but aren't able to counter threats present in
secure connections. Verifying the contents of a secure connection is
impossible by virtue of its secure nature, as demonstrated by the different
types of protection listed above. As a result, malicious data within secure
channels can cause a significant amount of damage, and sometimes more than if
it were to be transmitted via a standard, non-s...form security against security
i have a form in my website which is to be filled by user and that form stores in database(sql server 2005).
but someone told me that anyone can run script in textboxes in that form and can damage database,
so how to avoid such security lack.
it is common practice to use parameterized sql statements or stored procs to insure you are protected from sql injections attacks.
if you concatenate user input directly into a sql statement, then you are at risk.Mike Banavige~~~~~~~~~~~~Need a site code sample in a different language? Try converting it with: http://converte...Password secure...is it secure?
Yes I just got this baby and I LOVE it! Its great. I have stored all my
passwords inside of it (and yes made a few backups from them in secure
locations) How secure is this program really? It uses blowfish to encrypt
the database but how strong blowfish? 128bits? 256? 448?
Anything else I should think about it? I have putted it and its databases
inside PGPdisk just to play it safe...but then again Im a paranoid. :)

********...How secure is secure enough?
July 28, 2008 (Computerworld) This story originally appeared in
Computerworld's print edition.
If there is a Holy Grail in the information security industry, it surely is
the answer to the question, "How secure is secure enough?"
It's a question that many security managers have either avoided answering
altogether or tried to quickly sidestep by throwing a fistful of mainly
pointless operational metrics at anyone who cared to ask.
