System Security

  • If anyone claims their system is invulnerable, they were probably also involved in the design of the Titanic. Security, like animal care and control, is a cat and mouse game. We continually strive to have a better mouse.

  • AnimalShelterNet's software can be configured to use SSL (secure sockets layer) which encrypts all communication between any and all clients (local, remote, and/or wireless) and the server using industry standard 128 bit encryption. This is the same method used to secure billions of credit card transactions over the Internet. SSL technology is even considered non-exportable by our Department of Defense.

  • It is important to note that SSL Encryption can be used in addition to IPSec, VPN, and other network security measures.

  • AnimalShelterNet also utilizes username/password security that conventional windows applications use.
