clan site secured

Wed, Jan 26, 2005

During development of CLAN, we were looking at various web server security companies, from which to source a CLAN secure certificate, as well as address the issue whereby SSL (and there HTTPS) requires a unique IP address for each virtual host.

Having sorted the virtual interfaces and obtained test certificates from various vendors, we decided to go with Thawte and have purchased a secure certificate for www.clan.uhi.ac.uk

This means users won’t be subjected to the browser warnings that appeared when logging in to CLAN, stating that the server’s certificate couldn’t be verified. Users will also notice the Thawte seal on the login page, which is there for all to be sure that CLAN passwords are now secure.
