SSL isn't good enough. Your website can be hacked.
Help solve the problem by advocating these RFCs:

TLSA (formerly DANE for DNS) Fixes the hackable CA problem

TLS-OBC: Fixes TLS, and the Related Domain Cookie Attack


About me
I have no relation to the above sites; I am just an advocate

Why "makerofthings7"? It's a challenge to "make seven things in my life of significant quality and value". Who knows if those things will take the form of software, art, or people. (I'm not married, no kids yet)

comment Is it an acceptable practice to Get a property, that involve parsing binary, that might throw an exception?
From your casing I infer you're using Java. Does this advice apply to C# as well? I'm porting this code from Java and see many API approaches I would have done differently.

Is Bitcoin considered a DHT like BitTorrent? I'm more familiar with Bitcoin internals than BT. Any suggested starting points for learning BT? (keywords, etc). My main language is C#

Oh, I'm inferring that since hierarchical relationships exist in some databases... it may exist in MSFT SQL? I'll look into it

comment What database structure is suitable for tracking File audits?
@RobertHarvey The image in that linked post gives me ideas. What if instead of numbering the nodes algebraically, I wonder if other math could be applied (fractals, Elliptical Curves, etc) to define the relationship between entities with even more properties. Would you rule out (or rule in) any such property?

comment What is a cross-platform way to expose an Array[][] over a webservice? Any JSON nuances to be aware of?
@DougM I'm doing crypto work on X objects (int, string, image, anything) and they need to match byte-for-byte on both the client and server. Just because it's an array doesn't mean it's internal in my case, it's just the C++ data to be encrypted or validated. Of course there will be checks pre encryption/decryption
