You can open mos.ru
in any supporting browser by connecting in either of two ways: open or secure connection.
Here's how it works with secure connection:
1. The user opens mos.ru
; it is SSL certificate secured.
2. The user's browser sends a request to mos.ru
sends back a copy of the certificate, the browser verifies the certificate (checks with the relevant issuing certification authority). If the certificate is valid, the website and the browser secretly agree on a unique secret encryption key.
From this point on, all information exchange between the browser and mos.ru is protected from outsiders.
Traditionally, websites use certificates issued by foreign certification authorities for security. mos.ru
will support certificates issued by Russian certification authorities and use domestic encryption algorithms for protection. The secret key converts the transmitted information using an encryption algorithm approved by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (GOST R 34.10-2012, elliptic curve cryptography).
To use GOST encryption, the user needs to download one of the browsers supporting Russian encryption: Yandex.Browser or Sputnik
