How to Secure Your Streaming Barcodes
Security is an important concern on the internet, not only for companies that have E-Commerce and websites intended to engage and interact with users but also for web surfers who seek out the community or other valuable content online. If a website is not properly secured, then any data that is communicated between the website and the visitor can be intercepted by anyone who has the means to eavesdrop.
When considering which facets of your website to make secure, think about the role that barcodes play. For example, many E-Commerce checkouts include barcode images on the order form. In many cases, the data encoded therein consists of names, addresses, and possibly even credit card numbers. Many membership-based websites require private information like social security numbers, addresses, or other personal data that may be stored in a barcode for easy, error-free entry into a database. If the information in these barcodes is not encrypted and secure, then your data may be on display for anyone who wants it.
