Historic City News takes your Internet safety seriously


275-GREEN-SECURITY-KEYWhen you interact with others over the Internet, do you always know who you are talking to and who else might be eavesdropping? Is it possible you’ve connected to a cleverly built imposter’s website that is asking you to provide them with your vital, personally identifiable information?

Our parent, Historic City Companies, Inc., has successfully added a new level of high-speed validation to all of our Internet communications through HistoricCity.com. You are visually reassured that you are communicating with us in a safe, encrypted environment, every time you see the prominent green address bar, now displayed on all Historic City News web pages.

“Historic City News holds a website identity assurance warranty of $1.75 million,” editor Michael Gold disclosed in a press release published today. “Our domain on the Internet must remain a safe harbor for our steadily growing subscriber base. As a leader in Internet publishing, we are continuing to further our investment in the technology that allows us to achieve this outstanding assurance for our local readers.”

In issuing the credentials for the “extended verification certificate” installed on our Apache web server, COMODO CA LTD assures our global audience of the authenticity and reliability of the transactions being conducted. This means that you are insured for up to $1,750,000 when relying on the information provided by IdAuthority on our website.

COMODO introduced the extended validation secure socket layer protocol (EV-SSL) in 2005. It was the first SSL certificate to be based on a standardized validation process offering a highly conspicuous visual trust indicator — the green HTTPS address bar. Today, COMODO is one of the two largest issuers of EV-SSL Certificates in the market.
