bitcoin: investors throw caution to the wind, lift bitcoin over 7 times so far i


despite advice for caution from global and domestic market experts, bitcoin touched another milestone on thursday by crossing the $7,000 mark for the first time ever. on friday, the virtual currency hovered around $7230 per unit, whereas in the domestic market, it traded at over rs 4,80,000. the currency has jumped more than seven-fold in value since the beginning of 2017. credit suisse chief executive tidjane thiam recently advised caution about the booming crypto-currency, saying the current interest in it could eventually subside, said a reuters report. crypto-currencies are digital currencies that use rules of cryptography for regulation and generation of currency units. back home, the indian government is not at all impressed with digital currencies. an rbi spokesperson recently said

some nations still have old notes, exchange unlikely


new delhi: the government is yet to take a decision on substantial quantities of demonetised indian currency floating around in countries like nepal, bhutan, bangladesh and zimbabwe, the finance ministry informed parliament's finance standing committee on thursday. economic affairs secretary subash garg is understood to have told the committee that some amounts of indian currency comprising the demonetised rs 500 and rs 1,000 notes were yet to be returned. some of india's neighbours where indian currency is in use have raised the matter with new delhi. the possibility of older high-value denominations — the government did not specify the likely value held in these nations — being accepted is remote as the centre has strongly opposed opening fresh windows even for ind...

tls - is it already the right time to say goodbye to tls1.1 support on web serve


let's put the question the other way: what do you gain by disabling tls 1.1?securityyou and your quote seem to be implying that you want to move to tls 1.2 because it's more secure than tls 1.1. that's not really the case.tls 1.2 did add new crypto, for example you can now use aes instead of 3des, or ecdhe instead of dhe. at the moment, there are no known attacks against those ciphers so you can't directly say that it's for security. 1.2 also replaces md5 and sha1. that is a security improvement, but for something as short-lived as a tls connection, it's unlikely to be a major weakness.so while tls 1.2 offers newer crypto algorithms, the old ones are still considered acceptable, so it's hard to make a straight security argument.performancebecause of the newer ciphers, you will get s...
