About Secure Registration
How does secure submission work?
When we say your data is being "submitted securely" we mean
we're using SSL-encryption, an industry standard protocol for
safely exchanging information. The important part here is that
your information is encrypted so that only your computer and
TheNet can see or understand it.
That's great, but what exactly is SSL-encryption?
That's a very good question. Our security team likes to describe how
SSL-encryption secures your data using the following analogy:
Imagine you are passing a note from the back row of a full concert
hall to your friend in the front row. You send it on its way and hope
no one between you and your friend decides to open your note and read the
message. This is very similar to the way most information travels on the
Internet. Now imagine placing your note in a locked case, that only you
and your friend have keys for, and passing this case to your friend.
No one can open the case and read your note except you and your friend.
SSL-encryption is the electronic equivalent of a locked case and only your
computer and TheNet have the keys.
