RC4 no longer considered secure

The security of RC4 encryption algorithm has been questionable for many years. But despite well-founded concerns, this has remained a popular TLS/SSL cipher not only due to its speed, but also as a countermeasure against "BEAST" attack targeting block ciphers using CBC mode in SSL 3.0 and TLS…

Last month, Google Security Team disclosed POODLE Attack - a vulnerability in SSL 3.0 protocol that makes it possible for attackers to reveal encrypted data with relative ease. Fortunately, newer versions of the SSL 3.0 protocol (TLS 1.0 and higher) do not suffer from this, so if…

Rebex products are not affected by Heartbleed exploit

Rebex products are not affected by the critical OpenSSL bug known as "Heartbleed". A Heartbleed exploit makes it possible for an attacker to access sensitive data such private keys used by the servers to encrypt SSL traffic, usernames and passwords. This is not a design flaw in TLS/SSL protocol…
