    i just ordered online tickets using ticketmaster...but i have a bit of a concern..i order online using my credit card using the school wireless connection...
    should i be worried?

    i heard it could be secure since it is https...as opposed to http....will i be okay? or should i have nething to worry bout?

    btw..im in canada and my university is a small school....there are not a lot of students...

    im worried someone will get my card information

    1. Is your wireless connection require some sort of authentication?
    2. https would use TLS or SSL to make a secure connection as well.

    the connection requires a certificate of authentication...then it brings u to a page where u have to log in ur username and password provided by the school...

    even though it seems secure..cant other students be hackers and get my card information...

    or am i safe?

    It sounds like WPA Enterprise. Once again Ticketmaster more likely used a SSL to encrypt your transaction.
