Re: How can I secure my site?

Hi Ali,

Providing more detail would be helpfull - is there a DB-backend used? If so, thats where protection should start 
(dedicated access).
Is the PHP code clean and does it properly filter user inputs? Has it been reviewed? 
Simply using a HTTPS connection could protect against an MITM attack but imho. thats all - nothing more.


Best regards,
Adam Pal

P.S. 
For a full security consultation concerning the page you might try to contract someone, the mailing list can surely 
help but not replace a full-service.

Betreff: How can I secure my site?

Hi
I have written a php website. In this site I sell some license and
serial number. I need to protect serial numbers and user names and
passwords against sniffers and crackers. Now I want to secure this
site and encrypt sessions using https.
What do i have to do?
