SSL isn't good enough. Your website can be hacked.
Help solve the problem by advocating these RFCs:

TLSA (formerly DANE for DNS) Fixes the hackable CA problem

TLS-OBC: Fixes TLS, and the Related Domain Cookie Attack


About me
I have no relation to the above sites; I am just an advocate

Why "makerofthings7"? It's a challenge to "make seven things in my life of significant quality and value". Who knows if those things will take the form of software, art, or people. (I'm not married, no kids yet)

comment Do all captive portal solutions work the same way? (cookie, vs MAC address, vs other?)
@MichaelHampton I've been in the IT Ops, Engineering industry for 20+ years. Worked at MSFT, HP, ADP and many other large orgs as a Sr. Engineer. How can this be considered a non professional question? Regardless, asking how something works, at a technical level, is pretty clear to me. The rationale and culture of this site still eludes me.

@Closer / downvoter- yet another reason I get quickly tired of this site. What part of this question makes it seem to not be "professional"? Must I give you the corporate scenario that we're using this for? Irrelevant, and the downvoter is one of the detractors of the site. Do you work for Quora?

comment What interaction is required for a Windows server and Cisco router to setup and destroy a Multicast session?
I have a broadcast that may be of interest to many nodes on the Internet. If I sign my packets using keys they trust, or sign the application layer data, will that prevent hijacking of that group data by an unknown attacker who wants to flood the channel with garbage?

Is packet shaping / inspection possible for these types of messages? e.g. If the entire packet met certain requirements and/or cryptographic signatures they will be accepted?

comment How can I delegate “Attributes 1-15” in Exchange / AD?
@HopelessN00b Of course we're using them (I don't want to waste people's time). Are they actually AD attributes? Exchange Schema Reference does actually add them. If we're both right (AD attributes + Exchange attributes) then that complicates the situation. How are we using them? Ping Identity server is mapping incoming SAML requests to users.
