E-Commerce on the Internet
Main Security Issues
Data can be intercepted and read while being transmitted between parties.
Web service, site, or organization can be impersonated and traffic redirected. Known as "spoofing."
No standard solution for identification verification, so it is easy to impersonate another.
Exploitable program errors
Programs have bugs or holes that allow outsiders unauthorized access.
Weakest point in security
Although your firm may have good security, since you are linked to others, their weak security can allow unauthorized access into your system.
