Ways To Increase Security

Postby elitecodex » Wed Jul 10, 2002 5:26 am

I am new to PHP, and somewhat new to web programming (not client side programming) in general. I was wondering on some simple ways to increase security in a website. Im not looking for any extravagent (like obtaining a digital certificate or using https://) but just some simple things that I can do to increase the confidence when people leave me information such as their name, email address, location, etc. Links to some sites on this topic would be great. Thanks for any advice

my suggestion . You should say to your clients that all forms are not trasmitted via email (brrrrr) , but stored on a temporary server directory and encrypted.
