Difference Between Domain Validation and Extended Validation SSL

suharto hm

Site security is one of the primary concerns for most websites. With an increase in internet usage, the number of hacking attempts, viruses and other online threats have increased too. Ever since Google announced that it would display a ‘Not Secure’ text in the address bar of Google Chrome for all websites not having an SSL certificate, there has been an increase in the number of site owners looking for them. A Certificate Authority (CA) is responsible for issuing an SSL Security Certificate and authenticating the website.

There are three types of SSL certificates available to websites:

  1. Domain validation
  2. Organization validation
  3. Extended validation

Each of these serves a specific purpose. Today, we are going to talk about domain and extended validation SSL certificates and highlight the differences between them.

Domain validation & Extended Validation

A Domain Validation (DV) certificate helps in validating the domain of your site. While this does Read More

The technology China uses to ‘audit’ its population

john rambo

Beijing’s state-of-the-art surveillance cameras, monitoring every millimeter; facial recognition algorithms and images captured on CCTV are just the beginning.

Technologically-advanced China and its Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership, are “committed to the production and use of technology that controls and surveils its population,” Chairman Robin Cleveland and Vice Chairman Carolyn Bartholomew of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, told Fox News in a joint statement this week. “The decision to use these tools of repression is politically motivated to sustain the Party.”

And what happens in China does not stay in China.

An online post by SinoPharm shows pictures of workers it says got vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine candidate and the words “Giving a helping hand in forging the sword of victory.” In the global race to make

Downed trees block a road in a Brooklyn neighborhood as Tropical Storm Isaias churns its way up the East Coast on August 04, 2020 in New York City.

Customers of both Verizon Fios and Optimum vented angrily Saturday on Twitter about phone calls left on hold, disconnected or ignored in the days since Tropical Storm Isaias knocked them off the internet. Others were simply waiting for their televisions to turn back on.

“My internet has been out for 5 days!” began one frustrated Optimum user in a typical tweet. “What are you doing? It took until today to get a live person to schedule someone to help.”

Others complained they were unable to work from home without internet access, while small businesses dependent on internet payments found

Editorial: SC education, economy depend on internet access, and we’ve got a long way to go | Editorials

john rambo

With $50 million in federal funding, S.C. officials have been moving quickly to provide students with internet service before classes resume and to expand high-speed service to unserved areas. So far, they’ve signed up 57,000 student households for free hot spot service through Dec. 31 at a cost of about $8 million.

That’s remarkable progress, considering that the state’s funding plan for the first three months of this year, which authorized the spending, was just signed into law June 25.

SC students will get Wi-Fi hot spots in time for school's start, but gaps will remain

On Tuesday, Nanette Edwards of the Office of Regulatory Staff told a legislative panel she expected about 150,000 Wi-Fi hot spots to be distributed by mid-fall and to still have about $4 million left over from the $20 million budgeted for student access. That money might be needed for filling gaps that arise before the end of 2020, the federal deadline for spending the money.

Giz AsksGiz AsksIn this Gizmodo series, we ask questions about everything and get answers from a variety of experts.

There are some things that belong in a computer. Wires, chips, whirring mechanical doodads—what most of us would think of, sensibly, as “hard drive stuff.” Absent from this list—absent from most lists, except those dealing with repugnant, six-legged disease vectors—are cockroaches. A cockroach in a hard drive? That is simply not where a cockroach is supposed to be. And yet there they are, defying the laws of hard drives, not to mention nature. What is responsible for this abomination? What is it in the twisted cockroach psyche that compels them over and over to commit this particular crime? For this week’s Giz Asks, we reached out to a number of experts to find out.

Every March, hundreds of employees and guests gather at the Service Recognition Luncheon, organized and hosted by the Office of Human Resources, to celebrate achieving service milestones and to learn who was selected as recipients of the President’s Achievement Award and the Donald Griffin ’23 Management Award.

However, this year, Jadwin Gymnasium sat empty on March 25, the scheduled date of the luncheon, while most of campus was directed to work remotely due to COVID-19.

“Clearly this year is like no other, and we were very disappointed that we had to cancel this year’s event,” said Lianne Sullivan-Crowley, vice president for human resources. “Even though we could not celebrate in person together, it does not diminish the appreciation that I have for each and every honoree.”
