We here at Youth Radio like to explore the cutting edge of technology. Our Tech Department has built the Youth Radio web servers with the latest in web technologies to provide you with the best experience while browsing our site.
Security and Privacy: We take it seriously.
- Your connection is secured using SSL and hardened with a 4096-bit Diffie-Hellman key. This helps to prevent eavesdropping by third parties.
- Your connection is encrypted with SSL using Perfect Forward Secrecy. We have configured SSL to generate random public keys per session for the purposes of key agreement which are not based on any sort of deterministic algorithm. This helps to ensure that any spy capturing information from the internet will not be able to decrypt in the foreseeable future.
- Your connection has been configured to prevent against attacks from third parties by making use of HTTP Strict Transport Security. HSTS is a security protocol that forces the use of SSL in the communication between the web browser and our web servers.
- Your connection is accelerated through the latest version of SPDY – a technology that achieves reduced latency through compression, multiplexing, and prioritization.
- Your connection performance is accelerated through the use of OCSP stapling – a technology that reduces the amount bandwidth needed for OCSP validation and allows your browser to verify validity of our SSL Certificate without disclosing browsing behavior to a third party.
- Our content is accelerated by using the reverse proxy load balancing caching web accelerator NGINX – an open source web server.
- Our static content is accelerated by making use of a Content Delivery Network.
All of this effort has earned us the highest rating from Qualy’s SSL lab.
