The Kitchen Appliance Store uses the strongest SSL

At The Kitchen Appliance Store, we are committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of your personal information by providing you with a safe and secure transaction environment when booking online.

The Kitchen Appliance Store uses the industrys strongest 2048 bit (256 bytes) SSL Encryption

Thawte is a SSL Certificate Authority with over 14,000 registered clients. Thawtes SSL certificate provides validation that the domain name, "www.thekitchenappliancestores.co.uk" is registered and that Cameo Management have authorizedthe purchase of the certificate. Through SSL encryption, the certificate assures that information is kept private between our web server and your web browser.

2048 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption is the de facto cryptographic standard that we use for securing data communication between the browser and our website. Digital certificate technology is used to ensure transaction privacy, message integrity and server-side authentication. This also serves as an assurance that the website runs legitimately under the care of Cameo Management.
SSL is the industry-standard method developed by Netscape Communications Corporation for protecting web communications.

The SSL security protocol provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity, and optional client authentication for a TCP/IP connection. Typically SSL comes in three strengths, 320 bits, 1024 bits and 2048 bits, which refer to the length of the "session key" generated by every encrypted transaction. The longer the key, the more difficult it is to break the encryption code. Any software with encryption features having key lengths over 320 bits is considered strong encryption by the U.S. Government.

Low-level encryption, 320 bit, is acceptable for sites with low-value information. However, a hacker with the time, tools and motivation can crack the code in a matter of minutes. High-level encryption, at 1024 bits, can calculate 288 times as many combinations as 320 bit encryption. That is over a trillion times a trillion times stronger. That same hacker with the same tools would require a trillion years to break into a session protected by a thawte 1024 bit certificate.

Cameo uses Thawtes 2048 bit encryption to encrypt sensitive data on this site.
