Can you edit your question to include all this background?

comment Pattern extraction
I'm not sure that this question is suited for this forum. This is not a security question, but a simple programming/scripting one.

comment Kohnfelder Certificate
Kohnfelder wrote a thesis in 1978 from which we have standards like x.509. Your question supposes that his thesis is a standard that can be compared.

comment Kohnfelder Certificate
Is Kohnfelder a 'standard' or a concept? I can find no reference to it being implemented on its own but through standards like x.509.

comment Can you write OS-related virus using high level languages like Python
I think you need to challenge a lot of assumptions there about programming languages and kernels.

comment I believe my Domain has been hijacked I am not receiving in sales in shopping cart
Did you register your site with siteground? I see that it's your FTP destination. If so, it simply looks like they offer their DNS services for the domain they host for you. I'm not seeing a problem here.

comment Snort reading pcap
Are you sure the alert rules are configured correctly? Can you manually copy a couple alertable packets with a couple non-alertable packets into a test pcap file and run the commands?

comment I believe my Domain has been hijacked I am not receiving in sales in shopping cart
Did you start having problems with your shopping cart after you denied the siteground IPs, or before?

This is totally the wrong forum for this question.

I edited your question and voted for reopen, but my link above might answer it.

Read heartbleed.com "Does TLS client certificate authentication mitigate this?"

comment Heartbleed and Client Certificates
This question is very difficult to understand. Can you re-write or rephrase? What exactly is the problem?

comment I have discovered a botnet during testing
As for shutting it down, my advice still applies. If you had the power to shut it down, what else could you have done? It's a little like having your fingerprints on a murder weapon, even if you were securing the weapon to prevent further harm.

comment How do I store a user's secret key on a server?
So, users can only read the encrypted files if, and only if, they have an active connection to your server? Why, then, store the files locally? Why not store the files themselves on the server where you have much better control over the protection?

comment Are there any security protocols that are redundant?
Too broad of a question. 'Defense in depth' is the concept you are looking for.

comment Do Linux distros have VPN DNS leaks?
@EnriqueA. Always cite your sources. Where did that definition come from? Also, a simple Google search reveals hits for "DNS leak linux". Assuming you performed a Google search, how do those results not apply to your question?

comment How did the OpenSSL project start?
Not sure what mystery you see. Source code since 1998 is available on www.openssl.org/source/ and the core team is listed on their site. They also have a dev mailing list that people can subscribe to. The facts of the story are there.

comment Can a smart card with PKI certificate be used to protect a document?
Also, do you mean to ask "can I use a smart card as a secure data storage device?"

comment Can a smart card with PKI certificate be used to protect a document?
Why cards? Why not digitally sign the file with the issuer's certificate? Why not store the rights file in a central location? How do you propose to revoke rights if the file only exists on a physical card? I feel like you're only telling half the story.
