Secure Server Certificate Authority Information

For your security, the verification process happens in the background every time you use RedLightViolations.com site. You can click on the VeriSign logo below to verify that redlightviolations.com is a VeriSign secure site. (When you click on the Verisign logo, a Verisign Web page will open in a separate browser window.)


ABOUT SSL CERTIFICATES

Once your browser has verified our site using the digital certificate, it begins communicating with our server in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format using a security technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Extended Validation SSL Certificates give high-security Web browsers information to clearly identify a Web site’s organizational identity. For example, if you use Microsoft® Internet Explorer 7 to go to redlightviolations.com site secured with an SSL Certificate that meets the Extended Validation Standard, IE7 will cause the URL address bar to turn green. A display next to the green bar will toggle between the organization name listed in the certificate and the Certificate Authority (VeriSign, for example). Older browsers will display Extended Validation SSL Certificates with the same security symbols as existing SSL Certificates.

Note: Your browser's security icon, usually located in the bottom status bar of your browser window, reflects the security condition of the outer-most frame displayed in your browser window. If that frame was generated by a non-SSL site, the browser security icon will indicate non-secured data transmission, even though the inner frame where your personal information is being displayed is communicating over a secured link.

Security Alert Message

If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer and are receiving a Security Alert message stating that the certificate is expired or is not yet valid, your browser probably does not have the latest root certificates installed. To ensure that you have the latest root certificates installed follow the steps below:

Verify that your computer's date and time are correct. On most Microsoft Windows computers, you can verify the date and time by clicking Start, Settings, Control Panel, and then double-clicking on Date/Time.

If your computer's date and time are incorrect, update them, close your browser, and re-try your redlightviolations.com payment.

If you are still receiving the Security Alert message, you probably need to update your browser's root certificates. Follow the steps below:

  1. Go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com and click the Product Update link.
  2. The Product Updates - Select Software page should open, and it should contain a Root Certificates Update package (usually under the heading Recommended Updates). Select the Root Certificates Update package and click Download.
  3. Follow the prompts to proceed with the download. If you have questions or issues with the download process, click the Support Information link on the Microsoft website.
  4. When the download is complete, restart your computer and re-try your redlightviolations.com payment.
