The most detailed and comprehensive form of UK vetting. It is required for sensitive jobs and tasks, which involve long-term, frequent or uncontrolled access to secret material. All of our Penetration Testers at SSL247® have undergone Developed Vetting, proving their ability to work with sensitive data.
A Digital ID is by definition the digital representation of a subject. A Digital ID certificate will enable you to digitally sign your emails, files or components and ensure the end user that your files are legitimate. It will protect your brand and your intellectual property. Learn more about Digital IDs
A digital signature is completely electronic and replaces traditional paper and ink signatures. SSL247 Digital IDs like PDF signatures have the same legal value as your conventional signature on a paper contract. Digital signatures can sign email, sign PDF documents, sign code and sign Office documents. Find out more about our identification solutions
A domain name is the name that identifies a website. For example, in the URL https://www.ssl247.co.uk/, the domain name is ssl247.co.uk. Every domain name has a suffix that indicates which top level domain it belongs to. For example: .gov (government agencies), .org (non-profit organizations), .com (commercial business), .ca (Canada)… A domain name is used to identify an IP address . Because the Internet is based on IP addresses, not domain names, every Web server requires a Domain Name System (DNS) to translate domain names into IP addresses.
Domain Name System (DNS)
Domain Name System (or Service or Sever) is an internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. For instance, the domain name www.examplessl247.com might translate to 126.96.36.199.
Domain spoofing is a manipulation of the domain name system to associate a legitimate web address with an imposter or otherwise malicious website. Used to perpetrate phishing and other types of attack, the user is sent to the imposter website with little or no warning.
Domain Validation (DV)
There are three types of SSL certificates, with differing validation methods. These are domain, organisation and extended validation certificates. DV is the quickest and simplest type suitable for testing, internal or non-sensitive information. Compare SSL validation types.
DSA or Digital Signature Algorithm is an alternative method to RSA encryption and will become available in November 2013. It offers the same level of encryption, but makes it easier to keep up with governmental requirements as it is FIPS-certified (Federal Information Processing Standard) and was created by NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology. You can combine RSA and DSA encryption to increase your ecosystems reach across your entire client base. For more information click here.
