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

I wrote a custom authentication handler for PureFTPD, using a combination of

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

...Difference between asp.net security 2.0 & asp.net security 3.5 framework?
HI, What are the difference between asp.net security 2.0 & asp.net security 3.5 framework?
ASP.NET 3.5 security for me is almost the same as 2.0 as the former is built on top of the latter with the exceptions of framework specific libraries added to the newer framework. Most likely, your 2.0 applications will run well on 3.5 but not necessarily the other way around. The number of new classes added/improved from 2.0 to 3.5 is published and you may search them using your favorite search engine.

I'm jealous. No seriously. If Cigital is actually ran as depicted in the
book Software Security - Building Security In, I have to give kudos to Gary
and the gang for making an impressive environment for software security.
I'm a fan of Gary's writing. If you are a regular reader, you know I loved
both his books on Building Secure Software and Exploiting Software. This
latest book is, in my mind at least, a balancing act between the two
previous books on the topic. Gary calls it the "Ying and Yang". Which makes
total sense, since the book cover is of exactly that, ...F-Secure Readies Security Software For Linux

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.

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? In other words is this in...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...Security

If I were to use the login control, create user control, and and password recovery control, how secure would my site be? Is asp.net's built in security more secure than the classic session based security? Are there any articles that ouline this? I've got a dba who says he doesn't believe the built in security is secure enough, and invests too much into asp.net (not enough levels of seperation). Though, I personally think that's retarded. The built in security still uses sessions, and if I were building my own session based security I would be using asp.net to create the sessi...Password secure...is it secure?
