Notice the padlock next to the address bar? It means your connection to this website is securely encrypted using a special certificate called an SSL/TLS certificate, the same kind of certificate used to protect your information on almost every moden website today. The security behind your connection is so complex that not even the forum administrators can hack it. The certificate employs 2048-bit RSA encryption with an SHA256 algorithm. It is issued by Let's Encrypt, a free service for generating SSL/TLS certificates for websites. Only websites in good standing can use it.
2048-bit encryption is also used with the voting plugin Votifier to securely send new votes to servers without spoofing.
