|Thank you for visiting ShopBJPENN.COM!
In providing this Security Statement, we want you to be better informed about the security measures which we have implemented here at ShopBJPENN.COM in order to protect your personal data.
All personal data transactions on ShopBJPENN.COM are handled with 128-bit SSL encryption.
What is SSL?
- The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, originally developed by Netscape, has become the universal standard on the Web for authenticating Web sites to Web browser users, and for encrypting communications between browser users and Web servers. Because SSL is built into all major browsers and Web servers, simply installing a digital certificate, or Server ID, enables SSL capabilities.
- An encrypted SSL connection requires all information sent between a client and a server to be encrypted by the sending software and decrypted by the receiving software, protecting private information from interception over the Internet. In addition, all data sent over an encrypted SSL connection is protected with a mechanism for detecting tampering - that is, for automatically determining whether the data has been altered in transit. This means that users can confidently send private data, such as credit card numbers, to a Web site, trusting that SSL keeps it private and confidential.
- SSL comes in two strengths, 40-bit and 128-bit, which refer to the length of the "session key" generated by every encrypted transaction. The longer the key, the more difficult it is to break the encryption code. 128-bit SSL encryption is the world's strongest: according to RSA Labs, it would take a trillion-trillion years to crack using today's technology. Many banks require 128-bit encryption for online banking because 40-bit encryption is considered to be relatively weak. 128-bits is about 309 septillion times (309,485,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) larger than 40-bits.
- Equated to the real world, sending information without encryption is like sending a postcard through the mail - the contents are visible to practically anyone who wants to see it. Using this analogy, 40-bit encryption is like sending the information in an plain white envelope. 56-bits could then be equated to using a security envelope that is printed to prevent it from being see-through.
- Relative to these strengths, 128-bit encryption could be compared to encasing your data in a lead-lined, 12-inch thick titanium safe that is being transported by an armored tank with a convoy of a hundred of the best Mixed Martial Artists.
Some of the recommended steps you can take are:
- Verify that your browser uses SSL (Security Socket Layer) to authenticate the Kite Network via server-side authentication. SSL will also encrypt the wireless communications between Wi-Fi devices and Kite Network logon servers. To confirm that your browser is using SSL:
- Look for the "https://..." in the URL address
- Look for a closed padlock icon usually located in the bottom right-hand corner of most browsers.
- Pay attention to security warnings from your browser in order to understand when you may be entering or leaving SSL areas of this site.
- Inspect the Web site address in your browser's URL field to ensure you are communicating with the correct, secure Web site
