VeriSign™ Website Security
When NHPCU decided to offer the "Active WebSite" product, we wanted to make sure the site was secure for our users and their members. VeriSign is the recognized leader in Internet security, so we decided to purchase their programs.
If you double click on the "secure lock" in the status bar of your browser, you can see more information about the Secure Site Certificate.
Every member is responsible for protecting the secrecy of their PIN. You should never give this number to unauthorized persons.
Netscape Communicator version 4.05 or earlier includes a root CA certificate set to expire at the end of 1999. Users of these browsers will experience an additional dialog box when connecting securely with your site after January 1, 2000. (Root CA certificate expiration does not affect SSL encryption.) We encourage you to update your browser versions by December 31, 1999.
We strongly encourage you to use the following tools:
The Browser Security Update Tool opens a new browser window and automatically checks the security status of your visitors' browsers, offering upgrade and update instructions. The Tool walks browser users through the process of either updating the browser security feature only in approximately one minute (this installs a new root CA certificate in the user's browser, ensuring secure Web site connections), or to download the newest version of Netscape's browser.
Go to http://www.verisign.com/server/cus/rootcert/webmaster.html to download the Browser Security Update tool. The downloadable file includes instructions for installing and running the Tool on your site.
