Show notes:

  • RC4 – a risk that we find just about anywhere SSL is used, but in most cases it’s pretty easy to take “off the menu.”
  • Self-signed certs are bad, especially for anything where a login is used.  Public SSL certs have come down in cost – especially wildcart certs – so use ‘em!
  • DNSSEC – I’ve yet to come across a domain I’ve audited that has DNSSEC enabled (Google doesn’t see many DNS requests that are DNSSEC-enabled), but now’s the time to read up on it.  I think it will become a hotter topic this year and next.
  • SPF records are easy to make, so use ‘em!
