Security Certificate - SSL
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology secures your group Web site by encrypting information and providing authentication. An SSL Certificate consists of a public key and a private key. The public key is used to encrypt information and the private key is used to decipher it. When a browser points to a secured domain, a secure sockets layer handshake authenticates the server and the client and establishes an encryption method and a unique session key. They can begin a secure session that guarantees message privacy and message integrity. Service-Life.com uses SSL Certificates to offer secure communications by encrypting all data to and from the site. The lock symbol in your browser is a visible, real-time assurance of trust letting your homeschool Website visitors know in an instant that your site is protected by one of the most trusted digital certificate providers on the Web.
Authentication + Encryption + Certification Authority = Trust
Each time you access your organizational web site, you will be challenged with a login and a password, which protects that login. The login and password screen use a typical HTML form to process the username and password. Service-Life.com takes this one step further and combines this with ColdFusion session management to log you securely into your group website. ColdFusion advanced security functionality integrates a robust tool set to build secure Web applications.
Service-Life.com code was developed by seasoned, trusted professionals. We chose a group of Christian men who display integrity in their work ethic. They have programmed the code in such a way to ensure a secure web environment.

This gives each organization the control over who joins and views their website. Members request to join the site and the site administrator approves the membership before the member is given access to your online website.
User Login and Password
Each member determines their own login (username) and password. Only the member and the site administrator have access to this login and password. Each member can change their login and password as frequently as they desire. This adds another level of security and gives control to each member over their personal login and password.
