Bryant Grove SSL Fix for Heartbleed Bug

Posted on Apr 11, 2014

Yes this is a website for Bryant Grove’s Edmond apartments and townhomes for rent. And we personally invite you to come by and see our apartment community on six and a half acres of park-like grounds with big shady trees and a nice swimming pool to enjoy during those hot summer months that are just around the corner.

And this is not a technology or security blog space. It’s supposed to be primarily about our rentals, our apartment community and the City of Edmond, Oklahoma, but sometimes we drift from that to focus on other points of light.

Since we have Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption enabled for every page and form here at the Bryant Grove website, and an error has recently been found in an important piece of the SSL software, it’s important we let you know what we’re doing about that security hole.

The short answer is, it’s already fixed for this website.

Posted on Jan 30, 2014

Bryant Grove is first among the thirty five Edmond, Oklahoma apartment communities to use SSL encryption for their website, and they have it enabled for all pages available at bryantgrove.com.

In today’s world of stolen credit card information, stolen identities, online theft and impersonation, Bryant Grove’s https (SSL) connection can help you feel at ease about sending personal information through their website contact forms.

Netscape developed the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol in 1994, and it has become the standard form of Internet security used today for establishing an encrypted link between website servers and a web browser. SSL encrypts the channel, applies integrity checking, and provides authentication while continuing to strengthen as it evolves and new versions are released.

Thanksgiving Day is coming later this week. It’s on Thursday this year. 🙂 Okay, it’s on Thursday every year, but it’s late in the month of November this year.

I guess just about everybody here in the U.S. knows the history of Thanksgiving Day: The Plymouth colonists (commonly called “pilgrims”), the Indians (specifically the Wampanoag Indians) and their feast together is how the story goes.

Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma’s largest single-site employer, is doing its part for the environment and has purchased eight new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) pickup trucks according to The Journal Record.
