Privacy and security policy

Version Française

This website was made by Mathers. I pride myself in making very secure websites, using the latest internet standards and all the protection methods at my disposal. You will find hereafter a short description of the set of security measures that I try to implement on all the websites I manage. Due to technical limitations, these measures may not be active at all times on all the websites I operate.

Security

We take the security of your - and our - information very seriously. Here are a non-exhaustive set of measures we implement to make sure your data is safe.

  • Strong HTTPS

    Every single communication between your web browser and our website is encrypted. Our server will not respond to any unencrypted queries, except by telling your browser to try again on an encrypted connexion. Not all HTTPS encryptions are the same. We only use the highest grade of encrpytion. You can check that on https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/, that gives us a grade of "A+". We use certificate issued by the most trusted certificate authorities, with short validity periods (in case they get compromised).

  • HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)

    When you type the name of our website in your browser, it may try to use an unencrypted channel before being redirected to HTTPS. If your connection is compromised, HTTPS alone is not enough in this case. To prevent this, our websites use HSTS. Thanks to this, even the first time you visit our website, your browser defaults to a secure connection.

  • DNSSEC

    When you type our website's address, your browser asks a DNS server the IP address of our server. If your connection is compromised, your browser may try to contact the wrong server. If the HSTS preloading failed for any reason (not all browsers come with a preload list), you may get redirected to a malicious website. To avoid this, the DNS server serves our IP in a secure manner. You can check the chain of trust with tools such as http://dnsviz.net.

  • DANE/TLSA

    By default, your browser will trust hundreds of certificate authorities (CA). However, we know exactly which CA is used for our websites. We use the DNSSEC chain of trust to give your browser information about which certificate to access. This chain of trust is stronger than the HTTPS chain of trust, because only one authority can give DNSSEC trust to a domain name. You can check our DANE/TLSA validity using DNSSEC/TLSA validator (extension for Firefox).

  • Content-Security-Policy

    Even if a malicious party was able to inject code in our website, it wouldn't be able to make your browser communicate with any unauthorized server. This way, your privacy is safer. This is done by sending a special header to your browser each time you make a request, with the list of websited your browser is allowed to contact. You can check this using https://securityheaders.io/.

  • X-Frame-Options

    Even if a malicious party was able to inject code in our website, it wouldn't be able to make your browser communicate with any unauthorized server using frames. This is very similar to Content-Security-Policy.

  • X-Content-Type-Options

    This stops your browser from trying to MIME-sniff the content type and forces it to stick with the declared content-type.

Privacy policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which this website collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") of the website ("Site").
