      Simply configure your web server to use SSL.

I wasn't going to suggest that, however you are very correct. Reason I wasn't going to suggest that is depending on his web environment it may not be an option. For instance hosting companies usually (well... that is less true these days) charge a premium for SSL enabled hosting. In a corporate environment SSL usually incurs a cost that some management won't approve.

    That might be true, but I don't think one can expect to come up with a self-made solution that comes near to SSL in terms of security, and that doesn't cost much more in total, if you include cost for development and maintenance of the custom solution.

[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
[Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
[marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
