comment It is safe to buy a domain if I get this message in Firefox?
@paan, are you half as careful in 3D world with your credit card, and who you hand it to, as you are online? Credit cards are inherently a non-secure mechanism, and the only reason online systems are more vulnerable is the mass-theft aspect. Which doesnt really make a difference for you...

@Lispninjutsu in addition to @Thomas' comment about not trusting them with your credit card, you wouldnt want to be trusting your entire domain to a security-incompetent registrar.

In addition to @nealmcb's and @nhnb's comment, session cookies (that are not marked secure) can also be exposed.

comment Comprehensive book to study about wireless technology
as I said, here you can ask for security books. Btw, do you really mean "wireless", or did you actually mean more specifically "wifi"?

comment Biometric authentication in the real world
Voice authentication, of course. "High reliability" is relative, and while I dont think it hits 99%, it can give better results (depending on tuning, crossover, etc) than other common mechanisms. That said, I do agree that it's not quite "there" yet.

comment How to tell if Firefox Home (iOS) is using Data Protection API?
I'm not clear on this. Are you asking about FF for iPhone/iPad? Otherwise, what did you mean by iOS? And if so, is there DPAPI for iOS??

@Eugene, that is no longer the case - I've seen very good implementation of voice, and I'm working with a startup on typing patterns, which already works superbly.

@Rory, I think he covers those with "etc."... ;)
