Internet Insecure Without TLS

The latest shoe to drop for Internet security?

http://lgms.nl/blog-2   Luc Gommans, a student at Roermond, Netherlands.

Although he is also working at HBO Software Engineering and
Cyber Security.

 

Has put together a test for the most basic connection of the Internet…  a TCP handshake test.

He goes on to explain a Man in the middle attack which he calls a Faking the TCP handshake.

True Luc, Internet technology is not secure by default.  One has to use secure encryption technologies (like TLS)

 

And for some it may not work correctly:

As you notice in the following:

“Your connection to www.chase.com is encrypted with obsolete technology”

from an old blog post:

And as you may know from our

ssl_certificate_hacked

Standard SSL is no longer compliant and can be relatively easy to hack.

 

So…  even encryption does not ensure security – so the technologies you use must be tested.
