How is my connection secured?
Black Warrior Riverkeeper takes security very seriously and desires to maintain a secure website. To accomplish this, we make use of best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security at Black Warrior Riverkeeper.

All browser connections to BWRK are secured and encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), both frequently referred to as “SSL”, are cryptographic protocols that provide communications security over a computer network. TLS refers to the process of securely transmitting data between an app or browser being used and the server being used. The term “SSL” continues to be used colloquially when referring to TLS and its function to protect transmitted data.

TLS attempts to accomplish the following: Encrypt and verify the integrity of traffic between your browser and Black Warrior Riverkeeper, & verify that you are communicating with Black Warrior Riverkeeper.

Black Warrior Riverkeeper forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL). We regularly audit the details of our implementation: the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We regularly perform penetration testing, network & vulnerability scans and code reviews.
