How To Set Up Two-Factor Authentication in cPanel

What is 2FA
Two-Factor Authentication (or 2FA as it often referred to) is an extra layer of security that is used to provide users an additional level of protection when securing access to an account.
Employing a 2FA mechanism is a vast improvement in security over the Singe-Factor Authentication method of simply employing a username and password. Using this method, accounts that have 2FA enabled, require the user to enter a one-time passcode that is generated by an external application. The 2FA passcode (usually a six-digit number) is required to be input into the passcode field before access is granted. The 2FA input is usually required directly after the username and password are entered by the client.

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

SafeMoon Clone | Create A DeFi Token Like SafeMoon | DeFi token like SafeMoon

SafeMoon is a decentralized finance (DeFi) token. This token consists of RFI tokenomics and auto-liquidity generating protocol. A DeFi token like SafeMoon has reached the mainstream standards under the Binance Smart Chain. Its success and popularity have been immense, thus, making the majority of the business firms adopt this style of cryptocurrency as an alternative.

A DeFi token like SafeMoon is almost similar to the other crypto-token, but the only difference being that it charges a 10% transaction fee from the users who sell their tokens, in which 5% of the fee is distributed to the remaining SafeMoon owners. This feature rewards the owners for holding onto their tokens.

Web Security: Sessions, and Tokens

Web security has turned into a major topic, it plays an important role in building applications that are secure, and don’t suffer external attacks like XSS. Over the years, web security has evolved drastically. It began with sessions, and is now based on tokens. In this post, you will read about the transition, and how web security is handled nowadays.

Cookies are small pieces of data, shared by a server with a client, who is accessing or logging into a service offered by the server over the web. The server uses “set-cookie” tag for inserting the cookie into the response.

Once the user has successfully logged into the server, every request sent to the server from the client will have either the session id, or a token, which is saved in the cookie.

Properties of a Cookie:

  1. These are “string” type data structures.
  2. Cookies are stored in the client side.
  3. Cookies are never safe, mainly because they are not encrypted, and can be read easily.
  4. Cookies are small pieces of information, less than 4kB in size.

An Analog to Cookies

You can imagine Cookies as an Employee ID card. When you join a company, you will receive the ID card, with an Employee ID. Every time you wish to enter the company, the ID needs to be presented at the security gate. And, when you leave the company for good, you will no longer be related to the ID.

In the beginning, the server used Session ID to authenticate every client, logging into the server. Once the authentication is done, the Session ID is shared by the client with the server, for authorization. Both authentication, and authorization are different use cases for the Session ID.

Properties of a Session

  1. Maintained at the server
  2. Sessions are encrypted, and stored safely in the server. They are stored only in a single server at a time.
  3. Sessions have an “Object” data structure.
  4. The lifetime of a session depends on the server coding.
  5. Sessions are generally an overhead. They are expensive to create, and store.

An Analog to Session

Looping into our previous example, the Employee Data and the ID generated is managed by the company. Details about the employee are linked to the ID, and they are stored securely. The overall duration of the link, and the way the link is destroyed depends on the company’s policies. As long as an employee works for the company, it would translate into a Session.
