VeriSign Logo – VeriSign is a company that provides infrastructure services for telecommunications networks, including Internet. Its main activity in terms of turnover is the signature of certificates: Verisign allows users to identify interlocutors, thus limiting the possibilities of attacks such as “Attack of the middle man.”
In addition, VeriSign manages the databases that determine the interpretation of Internet addresses of the domains .com and .net . That is to say that when you are trying to reach www.example.com server Verisign will be more or less directly contacted to identify the IP address of the server you need to contact. In 2003, VeriSign has set up a controversial one that uses this unique position.
Verisign managed the .org until 2003 but abandoned it to continue to manage .com is the largest area. In 2011, his contract to manage. net was automatically renewed for 6 years. In April 2012, VeriSign has partnered with Symantec to create Norton™ brand Secured. This logo will help give users some assurance of safety and reliability of websites consulted.
