Security Firm: Clinton Didn't Encrypt Emails For 3 Months

Hillary Clinton did not encrypt her private email service with a digital certificate for the first three months of her tenure as secretary of State, according to a security research firm

After scanning Clinton’s domain,, the security firm Venafi found that from January to March 2009, the domain had no digital certificate issued by an authority, which shows a site is secured.

“This means that during the first three months of Secretary Clinton’s term in office, web browser, smartphone and tablet communications would not have been encrypted,” said Kevin Bocek, vice president of security strategy and threat intelligence at Venafi, in a blog post.

According to Clinton’s travel records, she went to China, Egypt, Israel, Japan and South Korea, among other countries, during that time.

“Attackers could have eavesdropped on communications,” Bocek said. “As well, the server would not have been uniquely identified as being and therefore could have been spoofed — allowing attackers to more easily trick an unsuspecting user of the site to hand over their username and password or other sensitive information.”

Clinton insisted Tuesday that “there were no security breaches” of her email and that the system had “numerous safeguards” in place.

She followed every rule!

Just like she will in the White House!

No way does she have the integrity for the job....not that the current resident does. We don't need more affirmative action!

Just as Clinton could not send encrypted mail nobody could it to her either. This means many of our enemies were privy to her electronic discussions wether that be nuclear discussions with Iran or tactical coordination with Bengaza. Bibbi knows more of what is coming down with Iran than Obama does.
