What is a secure connection?
If you login at https://online.milieubarometer.nl, a secure connection is made between the Envirometer and your computer. In order to make this secure connection, a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is used. This is a security technology that ensures that all data exchanged between your computer and the Envirometer server are encrypted. As a result, the data exchanged are only recognized by the computer you are working on at that time and by the Envirometer server at Stimular’s. As soon as the SSL connection is made, your browser will show the picture of a closed padlock.

How can I check whether a connection is secure?
Click on the icon of the ‘closed padlock’ or the ‘key’ in your browser. The data of the secure connection are shown. Check whether the following address is showing: https://online.milieubarometer.nl.
