Padlocked

stanhoe.org has gained a new security feature.

SSL padlock icon in Firefox

From today, you should see a padlock icon in the address bar of your browser when you visit stanhoe.org.

If you’re using Firefox or Chrome, the padlock will be green (and Chrome will also show the word “Secure”). In Apple’s Safari the padlock is grey or black.

What’s this all about? It’s just an effort to keep up with modern standards for security on the web. The padlock shows that the link between your device and the stahoe.org server is encrypted. That means a third party – a “man in the middle”, in security-speak – can’t alter or steal information while it’s in transit.

Since we don’t handle payments or other sensitive information, security of this kind is not really a big deal for stanhoe.org. But the number of websites that use encryption is growing rapidly, and we think it’s a trend worth following.

Our official address is now “https://stanhoe.org” (note that “s”). But if you type “http://stanhoe.org” or just “stanhoe.org” you’ll automatically be redirected to the secure version of the site.

On this or any other website, the padlock does not mean the people running the site are necessarily honest or trustworthy. And it doesn’t mean the oragnisation can’t be hacked in other ways, possibly leading to the theft of your sensitive details. The padlock is just a brick – a useful and important brick – in the security wall.
