Security is important when you are letting people log onto your system
via Opensim. It is also very important to know that the code you are running
is safe too. DreamGrid is the only Opensim server code that is digitally
signed using Microsoft
Authenticode so that any modifications can be automatically detected and
stopped. I compile all the code personally, and sign it on one trusted
machine that is virus scanned by a top-rated scanner.
The Outworldz web site is also digitally secured by Digicert, a top-notch Certificate Authority, so you are guaranteed you are getting the code from the real Outworldz web site and that it meets the highest standards for security. Outworldz gets an A rating from a well-known SSL test suite.
Both of the Dynamic DNS systems, the primary one at ns1.outworldz.com, and the backup ns2.outworldz.net in Europe, have been tested as meeting all modern DNS standards.
This work would not be possible without all the thousands of contributions of the Opensim community.
