How do I know GarnetGaming.net is safe/secure?
GarnetGaming.net utilizes SSL/TLS as well as CloudFlare to secure our members. You can verify the presence of SSL by checking for 'https://' in the URL and a padlock icon in the address bar.

 

SSL/TLS implementation on our website employs the latest cryptographic standards and ciphers. We prioritize Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) to ensure that even if a private key is compromised, past communications remain secure. Our TLS configuration adheres to the latest best practices, including the disabling of outdated and vulnerable cipher suites, supporting only those with robust security profiles.

 

Furthermore, we employ HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) headers to instruct web browsers to only connect to our server via secure, encrypted channels, mitigating the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks. We also implement OCSP stapling to enhance the efficiency of certificate validation, reducing latency by bundling the OCSP response with our SSL/TLS handshake.

Our SSL certificate management follows industry standards, including regular updates and adherence to certificate transparency requirements. We leverage Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) stapling to minimize latency in certificate validation, enhancing the overall performance of secure connections.

 

Turning our attention to CloudFlare, our utilization extends beyond DDoS protection and into the realm of advanced web security. CloudFlare's WAF (Web Application Firewall) employs a rule-based engine, constantly updated to mitigate emerging threats. It inspects HTTP traffic at the application layer, detecting and blocking malicious requests, SQL injection attempts, and various other application-layer attacks.

 

Additionally, CloudFlare's Anycast network architecture ensures efficient and reliable content delivery. With strategically placed edge locations worldwide, it optimizes latency and load times for users across the globe. The content delivery network (CDN) not only accelerates static content delivery but also acts as a distributed shield, absorbing and mitigating traffic during potential volumetric attacks.
