How secure is secure?
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...security too secure

...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...Security Advice needed
I am writing a site where I would like users of the site to be charged to see some of the content - bespoke applications, word documents and such. However, Im not sure how to go about ensuring that files in certain directories in the application path cannot be accessed.
I have written a login section using asp.net authentication, but this does not cover the instance of a user typing the absolute path of a file. For example typing
in the browser would allow the user to download a file which I'd like to be kept un...How secure is AuthenticationTypes.Secure?
I understand that AuthenticationTypes.Secure requests secure authentication using Kerberos or NTLM (??). However, here is a scenario I am trying to understand. Let us say that I am having a regular ASP.NET site - with SSL certificates not installed on the web server. The login sends the request out to an AD server which also does not have certificates installed. However, I have set Secure flag to AuthenticationTypes.Secure. When the username and password data gets transmitted between the application and the LDAP server, how secure are the password and username info?

......... 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...A question about Web Service security / secured web service Testing
I created a web service and secure it using SoapExtention. I implemented code from this link.
Now if I create proxy class from my other webapplication and call any webmethod of my webservice, I must provide username password to access any of its webmethod, otherwise it is throwing SOAP Exception which works fine.
But now when I open this webservice locally using its URL, in Internet Explorer, like http://localhost/MyWebService/poservice.asmx, it shows me all webmethods and I can invoke any webmethod from here without using ...Security

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. :)

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.

Using Apache 1.3 on NW sp4, We need our website so that there is a secure,
password protected area as well. When, setting up the document folders, I
have a volume called web. Do I create a separate root folder for the secure
data, or can the directory be located under the public root folder?

IIRC it can be either way. You then configure uthentication for that

Hi!I was wondering... why is the Security namespace under the System.Web and not the System namespace? Almost all the features could also be used for Windows application and in fact work fine. If you create a Windows app and add a reference to the System.Web, you can use the Membership providers the same way with a web app, simply be adding some configuration settings in the app.config.So...
