Crossfire utilizes some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today. When you access our site using Netscape Navigator 4.5 or Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.0 or higher, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects your information using both server authentication and data encryption, ensuring that your data is safe, secure, and available only to registered Users in your department.
Crossfire provides each User in your organization with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a User logs on. Crossfire issues a session "cookie" only to record encrypted authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session "cookie" does not include either the username or password of the user. Crossfire does not use "cookies" to store other confidential user and session information, but instead implements more advanced security methods based on dynamic data and encoded session IDs.
In addition, Crossfire is hosted in a secure server environment
that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference
or access from outside intruders.
