Fix for HTTP to HTTPS Redirect

      No Comments on Fix for HTTP to HTTPS Redirect


I have had to fix HTTP redirect issues that was preventing non-encrypted traffic from automatically escalating to HTTPS.

DIAU.NET and its services are intended to be  used with HTTPS + SSL certificates in order to keep any potential data collection out of the hands of hackers, government, law enforcement agency’s, spammers, advertisers and data miners, HTTP traffic is vulnerable as it sends all data INCLUDING PASSWORDS/USERNAMES in PLAIN TEXT. HTTPS + SSL prevents this by encrypting the traffic both ways, to and from the servers/clients.

Any traffic directed to the HTTP end will now forcefully upgrade to HTTPS.

Due to a specific vulnerability in the HTTP to HTTPS redirects it is possible that a upgrade redirect can get man in the middle attacked, it is highly recommended to never use the auto redirect in the future by always using — HTTPS://DIAU.NET — instead of – HTTP://DIAU.NET –

  • HTTPS://DIAU.NET is the correct way to visit this site in the future, please update your bookmarks to this.
  • HTTP://DIAU.NET Is NOT TO BE USED, PERIOD! NEVER, it sends data in plain text and is not appropriate for any use on our systems. HTTP traffic will now automatically upgrade to HTTPS if attempted but please don’t rely on this as it is vulnerable to upgrade attacks via a man in the middle attack.

New Server – New Things – New Security

Major system design changes have been made.

I have initiated a series of upgrades to our core infrastructure, ( Founders ) will now receive real time messages via Text to their mobile number on file should any sort of incident occur with the new system. There have been an array of changes all the way through Email to the servers themselves. Below I will list some core systems that have been changed:

  • DNS ( brought in house )

There is no longer 3rd party resolution of any of our domains we hold.

  • FTP ( brought this back online )

There is now proper security implemented and I was able to safely bring up the FTP system again.

  • HTTP ( HTTP Forwards to HTTPS )

To protect our assets HTTP requests for DIAU.NET & InductiveSoul.US redirect to HTTPS and use a [DV] SSL Certification to encrypt the traffic.

  • SSH ( Private keys are now used )

No password authentication is now allowed, this greatly increases the security of this service.

  • E-Mail ( New E-Mail system )

I have implemented some core changes to the software’s and security practices of our E-Mail system, we should now comply with the ( Can Spam Act ), not that we intentionally spam. In fact I hate E-Mail so much I don’t like even using it. I keep E-Mail on deck so we can support 3rd party services that require an email address ( dirty little devils ).

  • Brute Force Protection ( Now all services are monitored )

If a Brute force attack occurs we now have a monitor to ban & or blacklist IP’s of the offender(s).

  • Text Alerts ( Founders get Text Alerts )

With our new system Text Alerts are sent to the registered phone numbers of the ( Founders ) group, if you haven’t got one yet i’m sure its just a matter of time before someone/thing triggers an alert, this is to help with the communication of the group and to keep us on the same page better.

— and quite a few minor things not worth mentioning here.

 

Alright well that’s it for this update and report. Good luck to everyone.
