EXOP - White House Offices

Website Security

The registration process for this website is not secure. This should be a secure website. Userids and passwords should not be transmitted in the clear. There is a high probability that some government employees may register using a password that is also valid on a government system and then that system could be hacked. My suggestion is that whitehouse.gov, as the agency running this idea process should secure the website and not have registrants passwords and userids be going thru the clear. At a minimum, you are exposing the email addresses and passwords of DOD, CIA, Treasury and all the other ids of the people who submit ideas for this program. This is a high security risk that could lead to system breaches.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
