I am concerned about using my bank account on the internet. What have you done regarding security?

While you should always be aware of fraud; using eCheck on the internet is no more insecure than handing your check to a waiter at a restaurant. Loudoun County uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) services provided by our VipNet webserver to encrypt all its transactions. SSL is a protocol which enables encrypted, authenticated communications across the internet. In communication between web browsers and web servers mostly SSL is used, but not exclusively. SSL provides privacy, authentication, and message integrity to prevent eavesdropping, forgery, and tampering.
