I've been reading through the Opera Faq about encryption and security features. I need some help learning more about it, so I can fully understand how it (or any other mobile web service) can be truly secure.
FAQ info: http://www.operamini.com/help/faq/#encyption
1. I think the piece that I'm most fuzzy on is the Opera Mini Server itself.
True or false: We as users must trust that they will not store any secure information. But, they could. So, in the end it's up to us?
2. With the Advanced version (not Basic) of Opera Mini 3.0 the Complete End-To-End connection is secure and encrypted.
Just double-checked the downloaded file I installed for the Pearl as being the Advanced version for (MIDP 2)
3. Since they keep track of cookies set by the remote web servers, it would be up to us to be sure that we didn't choose "remember me" and such during loggins for banking and other sensitive sites? Mainly to avoid problems if we ever lost our phones. Even though we can clear all history using the menu/tools/history/clear all.
Any advice, or guidance would be appreciated. Even just a link so I can read up on it myself. I've been reading everything I can find on proxy servers as well. Just trying to learn so I can make educated decisions.
