comment What is the interest of Reverse Proxy?
What are you trying to ask? Why people use one? What does it offer? If so, it is pretty much a duplicate of this: security.stackexchange.com/q/9465/485

comment why CVSS give a score of 0.66 for a full impact on CIA?
Mely - 0.66 is the maximum. It doesn't matter what that maximum is - it could be 50. The important thing is that the output is a number which can be compared to output from other vulnerabilities to see if it is better or worse. You have the arithmetic wrong though - from your own link it is more complicated than that.

comment What is the interest of Reverse Proxy?
The answer below is a reasonable description of a reverse proxy, but this question is still offtopic here. Please read the FAQ for guidance as to what is on topic.

comment more justification for the impact scores used by the national vulnerability database
Mely - this is the same question. If you want more info, please do as Peanut suggested and let us know on the existing question what it is you need.

comment Is there a standard for printing a public key as a barcode?
Just checked - 160 bytes is perfectly feasible on a business card size, and it seems to be fine on the free QR reader my phone came with.

Of course there are risks with using a QR code for a URL, as per our blog post: security.blogoverflow.com/2012/05/…

comment What is preventing us from sniffing the mobile phone communication?
as per your bounty, what extra information are you looking for? The questions below fully answer part 2 of your question, so I'm guessing you want something else from the first part?

comment efficient 16 bit hash
Hi bob - the way this, and your associated question, are written don't seem very on-topic here, where we aim to look for the most appropriate security solution/process etc for a security professional. Implementation of a piece of code should probably be in SO. Can you clarify the question - we can then see if it should be migrated in order to get answers useful for you.

comment Using Python for security
@Ephexeve - usual practice is not to add a comment, but to upvote answers you like, and to click the check mark next to the answer which helps you most.
