These tests are performed by peer websites to test configuration, speed, vulnerabilities and other common and technical specifications of our applications, servers, networks and routers. These grades allow us to be able to securely and comfortably declare that our applications, systems and websits all confirm to modern standards, modern encoding methods, the latest security patches and technologies and information passed to and from our sites is safe so that people can use our systems knowing that we have kept their security, privacy and the protection of their data and content in mind when developing our platforms.
Nucleus Core and the Nucleus Business Network confirms to the highest standards, security protocols and encoding methods available to mankind and we are comfortable to release our South African developed systems knowing that every loop hole and configuration has been hand adjusted, maintained and managed to ensure that all our websites and systems confirm and integrate into the global internet with security at the core of its heart.
Automated security analysis for ASP.NET sites
The purpose of ASafaWeb is to scan and report on common configuration vulnerabilities in live ASP.NET websites. It will report on anything it can find which is remotely detectable. from the test results we are able to see that all of our configuration and scripting has been locked down.
67.37% of websites on the internet have basic configuration vulnerabilities which means they are open to attack and can result in data, personal information or content being altered or stolen. OUr websites are not among them!
Application Code & Scripting Vulnerability Tests
Websecurify is an average scanner that is available on almost all the available platforms including desktop and mobile platforms. It detects all of the major vulnerabilities and also a list of false vulnerabilities. Almost all popular vulnerabilities can be detected with the help of this security tool. SQLI, XSS and CSRF are among the main vulnerabilities exploited by hackers.
DNSSEC [Verisign Grading]:
DNS Protected Domains
To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn't have one global Internet. When typing a name, that name must be first translated into a number by a system before the connection can be established. That system is called the Domain Name System (DNS) and it translates names like www.nucleusnetwork.org into the numbers – called Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. ICANN coordinates the addressing system to ensure all the addresses are unique.
Recently vulnerabilities in the DNS were discovered that allow an attacker to hijack this process of looking some one up or looking a site up on the Internet using their name. The purpose of the attack is to take control of the session to, for example, send the user to the hijacker's own deceptive web site for account and password collection.These vulnerabilities have increased interest in introducing a technology called DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) to secure this part of the Internet's infrastructure.DNSSEC is a set of extensions to DNS which provide DNS clients (resolvers) with source authentication, data integrity and authenticated denial of existence. DNSSEC utilizes a series of public/private key combinations to sign information resources, and provide a mechanism for the end user to verify the integrity of the DNS response.
SPF/DMARC/DKIM [MX Toolbox Grading]:
Email Spam Protection
DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) is the industry standard for email authentication, enabling domain owners to establish which services are authorized to send email using their domain names and to control the disposition of email that fails authentication.
SPF (Sender Policy Framework) is a standards-based component of today's email infrastructure, enabling domain name owners to specify in DNS which systems are authorized to send email.
External Risk Assessment [UpGuard]:
A complete Cyber Audit and internal and external risk assessment
The UpGuard external cyber audit uses publicly available information to grade your cyber risk posture. External scans are convenient and non-invasive but require an internal scan to assess the majority of risk factors.
Broken Links/Blacklist Scan [Siteguarding]
SSL [Qualsys Grading]:
Website Communication Security
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and cannot be intercepted and read by anyone else
