Protecting users from Firesheep and other Sidejacking attacks with SSL

Eighteen former employees of the Digital UK AltaVista development team have set up an Internet company to develop and market a new Web-based application. Details of the new product are being kept under wraps until its official launch next month. Early indications suggest that the application will allow Net users to access their normal office applications from anywhere in the world using a standard Web browser. "This is a genuine Web-based application," said John Kell, R&D director for Peramon Technology, which began trading today. Peramon acquired the application after the completion of a technology transfer agreement from Compaq which bought out Digital last year. The Reading-based company is backed by Royal Bank Development Capital and it's expected to target sales through partners and resellers. ®
