FROM THE EDITOR: Have A Secure Summer Vacation

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
By Jim Rapoza

With summer now here officially, many of you are most likely planning vacations, and you probably want to be able to connect to the Internet during your vacation. But how do you do this securely?

When you are traveling on business, the answer is typically simple, if you are connecting through a hotel connection or public WiFi hotspot, you use the company VPN to provide added security to your connection.

But what about personal travel? Sometimes it isn?t allowed to use a company VPN for personal use. And for many reasons you may not want to do that anyways. Also, not every company has a VPN, and if you work for yourself you most likely don?t have one either.

So what to do to remain secure? The easiest solution is to use HTTPS enabled sites as much as possible. But not all sites have HTTPS or they only use it for logins and not subsequent traffic. Also, if the WiFi hotspot has been fully compromised by bad guys, there?s always the possibility of man in the middle attacks.
