Here should be a piece of good news to WiFi networks. Apparently, finding a solution to how hackers are able to use wireless access to do their dirty work has been a growing concern. For some reason, they are able to access vital information and computers and then create havoc as they wish. Apparently they have a modus operandi to which do-gooders often have something malicious in mind, mostly to do something foolish such as injecting viruses or even accessing another computer and perhaps deleting some files without them knowing it.
But now, the Perspective System is being groomed as a low cost that will answer these issues. Apparently the biggest targets are the websites and online businesses and security in transactions is definitely in question. One this system is installed, security for various issues that include domain names system software will hopefully be covered.
“It’s very, very, very easy for someone to convince you to go through their computer” when making connections through public WiFi, said David Andersen, assistant professor of computer science. A user who thinks he is linked to an airport or coffee shop “hot spot,” for instance, might actually be linked to a laptop of someone just a few seats away. “A lot of people wouldn’t even know they’ve been attacked,” he added.
The Perspectives system is designed to aid in authenticating Web sites for financial services, online retailers and other transactions needing secure communications. By independently querying the desired site, the system can double check whether each is receiving the correct authentication information, called a digital certificate.
