We’re just in the process of ordering so cannot comment yet on ease of management etc. However, Chris Page of GlobalSign has been more than helpful. Our situation was slightly unusual in that we were taking over a piece of software from another supplier and needed to start signing it with a different cert. Chris made it all simple and is even managing the timing of the switchover for us. Very satisfied at this point.
Select the type of address bar you want to use and click the “OK” button at the bottom of the page to save your changes. Most web browsers give you the options of the major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, etc.). Choose the option that works best for your personal needs.
Clean up your WordPress website’s HTTPS insecure content and mixed content warnings. Installing the SSL Insecure Content Fixer plugin will solve most insecure content warnings with little or no effort. The remainder can be diagnosed with a few simple tools.
Some browsers address bars can be used to detect web feeds that can be used to subscribe to pages. The detection of a feed is normally indicated by the RSS icon “”. A variety of other icons may also be present in the address bar if included with a browser extension.
Partial mitigations; disabling fallback to SSL 3.0, TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV, disabling cipher suites with CBC mode of operation. If the server also supports TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV, the POODLE attack will fail against this combination of server and browser, but connections where the server does not support TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV and does support SSL 3.0 will still be vulnerable. If disabling cipher suites with CBC mode of operation in SSL 3.0, only cipher suites with RC4 are available, RC4 attacks become easier.
We really value that you have top-notch tech staff, and are staying abreast of evolving CA/B and other standards, e.g. Stapling services, embedding SCTs, CAA-checking, etc, etc. The other strong point you have going for you is maintaining your trustworthiness as an organization when so many other long-standing CAs haven’t managed to do so. Please keep it up 🙂
That’s correct, my server administrator have just informed me about that but now everything should be fine with certificate. Nonetheless, there’s still problem with mixed content. Google Chrome console says that because of the hero image.
On our website we’re running into the very situation you mention above: end users can compose html content inside a text editor on our secure site, but if they paste html from an insecure site into the editor, the mixed content prompt appears. In our case, it doesn’t make any difference whether the user chooses to block the insecure content or not, so ideally we would like to be able to tell IE to just block the content automatically and not confuse users with the security warning. Is there any way we can configure the site to do this?
Around the world, data espionage is a serious problem for both international authorities and consumers. Internet security is occupying an increasingly central role for both businesses and individuals. Without a doubt, the Information Age has substantially affected the way we interact with one another on both a private and professional basis. In-house communication, customer data, and other sensitive information build up some of the most vital nuts and bolts of this infrastructure, and protocols like SSL and HTTPS are vital for ensuring their secure management. But what exactly do these terms mean and how does one go about implementing security protocols for a web presence?
You can enable these features for a page by including the Content-Security-Policy or Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only header in the response sent from your server. Additionally you can set Content-Security-Policy (but not Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only) using a tag in thesection of your page. See examples in the following sections.
The same applies if they use any kind of form where users will be submitting information, documents, or images. It is surprising how much information is collected about a site’s visitors, so it’s worth keeping it safe.
“Unfortunately, it’s not trivial,” says Schechter, “which is why it hasn’t happened automatically. Google has a site with specific instructions about how to switch to HTTPS by obtaining a security certificate.
Technically this is something you can create yourself (called a ‘self-signed cert’), but all popular browsers check with “Certificate Authorities” (CA’s) which also have a copy of that long password and can vouch for you. In order to be recognized by these authorities, you must purchase a certificate through them.
The “s” stands for “secure” in “Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure”. Traffic (information) sent over this protocol will be encrypted and therefore, naughty people won’t be able to see the information shared over that connection.
When you visit a secure web page (i.e., using HTTPS), your connection is encrypted with SSL. If the HTTPS page also includes content retrieved through a regular HTTP connection, the connection is only partially encrypted. This is called a web page with mixed content.
My experience with GlobalSign was great. The user interface is very easy to use and the directions are easy to follow. Additionally, if I had any questions, there is plenty of support and FAQs available at any given time.
But the browser gives warnings for webpages served via HTTPS that include HTTP assets, like scripts, forms, and images. To avoid these browser warning messages, you need to make sure that you don’t serve any HTTP assets on an HTTPS page. Browser warning messages may put some of your site visitors on high alert, causing them to not complete that shopping cart order or that contact form.
RFC 2817, also documents a method to implement name-based virtual hosting by upgrading HTTP to TLS via an HTTP/1.1 Upgrade header. Normally this is to securely implement HTTP over TLS within the main “http” URI scheme (which avoids forking the URI space and reduces the number of used ports), however, few implementations currently support this.
For sites using EV certificates, the Site Identity button displays both a green padlock and the legal company or organization name and location of the owner of the website, so you know who is operating it. For example, it shows that mozilla.org is owned by the Mozilla Foundation.
Manually finding mixed content can be time consuming, depending on the number of issues you have. The process described in this document uses the Chrome browser; however most modern browsers provide similar tools to help with this process.
Usually, it’s an expired certificate, sometimes it’s a server misconfiguration, sometimes it’s user error (Ask Leo!, above, is not available over https). It could also be a clock problem; certificates are time and date based, so if the clock on your PC is wrong, then the validation of the certificate could fail.
I am developing an intranet site for a client using struts2 and I am running into Mixed Content Warning in IE8. I have run your “Script Free” tool and it is pointed the mixed content to about:
When a website is accessible over http://, loading other insecure resources does not generate any sort of warning, and so websites operating over plain HTTP often accumulate many of these sub-resources.

The primary benefit of HTTPS comes from encryption. Observers can’t see the content of the information as it moves between the application and the web server. So, it’s a basic layer of privacy between your data and the outside world.
Complete mitigations; disabling SSL 3.0 itself, “anti-POODLE record splitting”. “Anti-POODLE record splitting” is effective only with client-side implementation and valid according to the SSL 3.0 specification, however, it may also cause compatibility issues due to problems in server-side implementations.
The manual steps above work well for smaller websites; but for large websites or sites with many separate development teams, it can be tough to keep track of all the content being loaded. To help with this task, you can use content security policy to instruct the browser to notify you about mixed content and ensure that your pages never unexpectedly load insecure resources.
my address bar disappeared, and when i right-click on the web search bar it shows the address bar already checked, and I need my address bar because it takes me directly to the site, unlike the search bar which doesn’t. So I am not going to use the search bar until I have my address bar back right now! Because I have very important software to download from another site and I need my address bar NOW!!! got the picture! Thank You, and have nice day
If you click on the circle i icon, it will give you information about that site. In the case of Adobe it says “Connection is not secure” (and some information about special permissions). This means it’s not an encrypted connection. It has nothing to do with the site being legitimate or trusted. Many legitimate website don’t opt for secure (encrypted) connections. Some experts believe they should, and there is a good argument for it, but it is not required.
There are generally 3 different levels of vetting that most all SSL Certificates are build on. DV (Domain Validated), OV (Organization Validated), and EV (Extended Validation). The major difference in these certificates revolves around what information the Certificate Authority, GlobalSign, confirms in order to issue a certificate. Then different information is displayed in the certificate and browser bar. EV for example turns the browser bar green and displays organization information right in the browser bar.
