Protecting User from Firesheep and Sidejacking Attacks with SSL

Protecting User from Firesheep and Sidejacking Attacks with SSL

Cover

Unprotected HTTP connections are inherently insecure, and users who connect to websites on these networks expose their connections and allow attackers to monitor web sessions and access personal information.

This paper addresses the problems of unsecured Wi-Fi, including recent security concerns such as the Firesheep and sidejacking, and provides effective countermeasures to ward off against these attacks. Learn how public websites can provide security with TLS/SSL by not only harden against many attacks, but also assure users of that security.
