Online Banking Secure Site Information

VeriSign™ Website Security

When NHPCU decided to offer the "Active WebSite" product, we wanted to make sure the site was secure for our users and their members. VeriSign is the recognized leader in Internet security, so we decided to purchase their programs.

If you double click on the "secure lock" in the status bar of your browser, you can see more information about the Secure Site Certificate.

PIN Security

Every member is responsible for protecting the secrecy of their PIN. You should never give this number to unauthorized persons.

Security Alert

Netscape Communicator version 4.05 or earlier includes a root CA certificate set to expire at the end of 1999. Users of these browsers will experience an additional dialog box when connecting securely with your site after January 1, 2000. (Root CA certificate expiration does not affect SSL encryption.) We encourage you to update your browser versions by December 31, 1999.

We strongly encourage you to use the following tools:

The Browser Security Update Tool opens a new browser window and automatically checks the security status of your visitors' browsers, offering upgrade and update instructions. The Tool walks browser users through the process of either updating the browser security feature only in approximately one minute (this installs a new root CA certificate in the user's browser, ensuring secure Web site connections), or to download the newest version of Netscape's browser.

Go to to download the Browser Security Update tool. The downloadable file includes instructions for installing and running the Tool on your site.

Update instructions on Security Center at Netscape Netcenter help users update or upgrade their browsers. Go to to see the Security Center Update Instructions.

About Cookies

The terminology "cookie" is used to describe a nugget of data that is stored on your hard drive as a file. Cookies make it easier, quicker, and more secure for you to log into and use the Active WebSite.

We use a temporary cookie to verify who you are while using the Active Website. Your privacy is not compromised by these cookies. The cookie placed on your hard drive can only be used by your credit union's Active WebSite. Cookies cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. In order to access our secure site, you must allow the temporary cookie. The temporary cookie is removed after you exit the secure site section.

About Encryption

Encryption is a technical term for scrambling meaningful text and numbers at one location and transmitting them across the Internet to another location. The encryption process uses complex algorithmic formulas to create a key that is used to translate the information back into useable content. There are billions of potential keys and a different key is used for each Active WebSite session. Likewise, our loan application form uses strong key encryption.

All confidential information sent to and requested by this site is encrypted. The credit union submits the account information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted network transmissions. The encryption we currently use is 40-bit encryption. This is extremely secure and the most compatible encryption for world wide use. It has been estimated that this level of encryption would take a 64-MIPS computer a year of dedicated processor time to break.
