More Reasons to Avoid PKI-Based Web Security and Authenticity Controls

Most of us spend more hours than we care to admit online, surfing webpages for everything from professional networking and email, to dinner recipes to back-to-school shopping, and yes, even guilty pleasure reasons such as celebrity gossip. But what happens when you find out the webpages you're visiting aren't secure — putting your personal privacy at risk? That's an issue that Google is facing today. News reports suggest that some security certificates given to Gmail users earlier this year, assuring visitors that the website was protected from hackers and spies, are in fact fake and inaccurate. Reportedly, the signatures issued from the certificate authority (CA), DigiNotar, are not authentic, nor are they supported by Google. The company is still investigating the issue, but in the meantime, we thought the topic was worth sharing, especially as this problem continues to occur with various CAs.

Privacy concerns exist in all forms and fashions...not just in electronic documents, but online interactions as well. Keyless integrity protection controls, such as AbsoluteProof, are crucial in our digital lives, as truth and ownership hinges solely upon authenticity. Make your online experience safe and secure, and protect your web content today.
