Submission + - HTTP OR HTTPS? Which is best? (

bentraytech writes: We all might have seen the address bar with prefix either http or https, but what exactly does that mean. First let us be clear with its full form, HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol whereas HTTPS stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure. Now lets us get to the main point about the differences between these two
Both these are the protocols which are used to exchange the information of a site between a web browser and web server. Just the difference between these two is whether they can keep the information secure or not. HTTPS is secure because of its encrypted connection whereas http is not secure (normal) because of its insecure connection. In case of highly confidential online transactions like online payment while shopping through online sites like amazon and eBay, https is a must because no one wants their bank and card details to be known by everyone because it’s a personal property. It helps to keep information safe for hackers.
Though https is secure, most of the people use http because of its cheapness as compared to the other. The hypertext that are exchanges using http goes in form of plain text which anyone can read it easily if a hacker obstructs the exchange of data. Because of this reason only we need https because while the hypertext that are exchanged are encrypted in a secure way so that hackers cannot decrypt it. Another important difference between http and https is that http use the port 80 (which is default) and https uses the port (443).
HTTPS uses either SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) OR TLS (Transport Layer Security) secure protocol to encrypt the communication. Both the TLS and SSL protocols use what is known as an 'asymmetric' Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) system. An asymmetric system uses two 'keys' to encrypt communications, a 'public' key and a 'private' key. Anything encrypted with the public key can only be decrypted by the private key and vice-versa. The major benefits of a HTTPS certificate are:
        Customer information, like credit card numbers, is encrypted and cannot be intercepted
        Visitors can verify you are a registered business and that you own the domain
        Customers are more likely to trust and complete purchases from sites that use HTTPS
Firstly a Domain registration is required and we get http by default but if we want to add https then extra amount should be paid. Web hosting in Nepal is progressing a lot and even we can say that they provide reliable and secure services to the customers as compared to other countries too.

In this case, the Court decided that, contrary to the opinion of the Bush EPA, carbon dioxide and other GHGs qualified as âoepollutantsâ subject to regulation under the Clean Air Act.

Each app you install on your android device has a potential to slow down your device, either ram usage, background services usage, storage space, permissions, battery usage, notifications, auto updates, auto scan, auto backup, etc. Each new OS update you install will also has a potential to slow down your device, like iOS.

You can of course manually turn off/ block app functions to ensure your device work the way it should, however here is an easier way. You can stop apps from causing lags by trying to uninstall them first, with the most recently installed app first. If you have too many apps, you can factory wipe the device back to the initial factory state. Of course, you should backup before doing any of this.

If the factory wipe did not improve your device function, then it could be the bloatware from samsung. Try going to the installed app and look for names under samsung. If you can uninstall them, uninstall them. Otherwise, look and see if you can disable them. If you can, disable them.

Equifax Made Salary, Work History Available To Anyone With Your SSN and DOB ( 169

An anonymous reader quotes a report from KrebsOnSecurity: In May, KrebsOnSecurity broke a story about lax security at a payroll division of big-three credit bureau Equifax that let identity thieves access personal and financial data on an unknown number of Americans. Incredibly, this same division makes it simple to access detailed salary and employment history on a large portion of Americans using little more than someone's Social Security number and date of birth -- both data elements that were stolen in the recent breach at Equifax. At issue is a service provided by Equifax's TALX division called The Work Number. The service is designed to provide automated employment and income verification for prospective employers, and tens of thousands of companies report employee salary data to it. The Work Number also allows anyone whose employer uses the service to provide proof of their income when purchasing a home or applying for a loan.

The homepage for this Equifax service wants to assure visitors that "Your personal information is protected." "With your consent your personal data can be retrieved only by credentialed verifiers," Equifax assures us, referring mainly to banks and other entities that request salary data for purposes of setting credit limits. Sadly, this isn't anywhere near true because most employers who contribute data to The Work Number -- including Fortune 100 firms, government agencies and universities -- rely on horribly weak authentication for access to the information.
