Secure Forms


secure form icon Chris Shiflett, the author of Essential PHP Security posted a cool idea on his blog about secure forms. His idea was to have browsers show visually that a form action is secure (going to a HTTPS page). A good idea, I hope to see that implemented.

Chris used to be a ColdFusion developer, and I had a great deal of respect for him before I knew he wrote for O'Reilly. I was completely blown away by him when he explained a MSIE security hole to me several years ago when I met him on a consulting detail. He also writes for the 2600 Hacker's Quarterly.
