I have a login page, which is not in SSL. However, the script that processes this information is. While that information passes to the login page to the page that processes this information, is this information encrypted?



Thanks in advanced...

Hrmm... I would say it is your best bet to include the login page under the ssl link, just incase. But I think that the info would be encrypted...

I don't believe so, as you are viewing the page unencrypted. After you fill out the information, it will need to send it (over the wire) to the encrypted script. Even though it is encrypted after the script gets it, it's not encrypted between the "submit" button and the site receiving the information.

Ditto Unflux and bveditz

On that note, is there not a way to move your login script to a secure area?
