This means that now, for the first time, the majority of announced IPv6 address space is secured with RPKI. […]

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) serves as the foundation of data communication for the […]
Internet Security – Are You Up To Date?
Many popular Internet applications like e-mail and web browsers use Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure traffic against eavesdropping and against data being tampered with while in transit between clients and servers. Over time, flaws in early versions of TLS have been identified leading to substantial improvements to the protocol. The documents defining version 1.0 and […]
