Loansome DOC Article Ordering Service - Security Alert


Question: Why am I seeing a security alert going to Loansome Doc?


Answer:

To protect your privacy, Loansome Doc uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) which encrypts data sent between your PC and the National Library of Medicine's server. NLM has been issued a web site certificate to provide 3rd party verification of its secure connection, however some older browsers may not recognize the certificate properly.

For more information about web site certificates, see Understanding Web Site Certificates (http://www.us-cert.gov/cas/tips/ST05-010.html).
