ABOUT SECURITY

Security refers to preventing unauthorized access to a computer system or network. NY TEAM Federal Credit Union uses several layers of technology to prevent unauthorized users from gaining access to the internal network. NY TEAM's security professionals manage a sophisticated networking architecture that includes screening routers, filtering routers, and firewalls.
NY TEAM Federal Credit Union uses software from the Microsoft Corporation that incorporate full data encryption to ensure the security and privacy of transactions. This encryption technology is so secure that it is classified by the U.S. Department of Defense. United States law forbids export of this technology to other countries. As a further security measure, NY TEAM Federal Credit Union utilizes its Internet server as a firewall, thereby preventing customer data from being directly accessed via the Internet.
The Home Banking section is automatically secured/encrypted, but the rest of the Web site can be accessed as either secure or unsecure. To see at a glance if a session is secure:
If using Netscape Navigator
  • Check the key icon at the lower-left corner of Netscape's screen. If it is intact and a blue line appears at the top of the screen, all messages are secure.
  • Check if there is an "s" after the "http" in the URL. The "s" after the "http" denotes that the page is secure.
If using Microsoft Internet Explorer, and the image of a lock is displayed, the lock indicates the site is secure.
WARNING: If the icon appears as a picture of a broken key or a broken lock, encryption is not in use and the current session is not secure.
To ensure security, we recommend the following:
Never reveal your password**.
**Password refers to your STAR (Special Teller Audio Response system,) password or the password that you selected in the change password function of the home banking system . If you have questions about which number to use to access Home Banking for the first time, contact the Credit Union.
IMPORTANT: Some browsers allow you to enable a function to require passwords for specific sites or certifications. In that instance, you should enter the password for the browser.
You can change your Home Banking password from the main menu at any time. It is recommended that you change your password every six months.
WARNING: Employee's at the Credit Union do not have access to your password. In the case of a forgotten or lost password, you must contact the Credit Union and request a new password be mailed to you.
Use the Sign Off icon to end a Home Banking session. This will expire all the cookies that were set in your session. Do not use the Back key.
IMPORTANT: If you do not exit the browser, the browser will allow you to use the Back key to get back into your Home Banking session should you wish to explore another site.
The amount of time you can remain inactive before being automatically logged out of Home Banking is 5 minuts.
WARNING:
It is recommended that you balance your account at least once a month so that any discrepancies can be reported in a timely manner.

ABOUT COOKIES

The Internet is a state-less machine. This means that once a user makes a request, and a response is sent back, all communication is severed. The server has no idea or concept of what the client* is doing when it severs the communication. Knowing what state a client is in is very important for Home Banking.
*The client is the end user's computer that is making a request of the host server.
One of the ways to know what state a client is in is to leave "cookies" with a client when a request is made. Cookies are bits of information that a Web site sends to a user's computer. The user's computer may then display the information back to the server on subsequent pages, actions, or visits.
Home Banking uses session cookies that expire once the session has ended. The use of cookies within Home Banking is necessary for security and is required to access the system. Our use of cookies is for user authentication only.
All our cookies have expiration dates, so they will not cache* to your computer at the end of the day.
Cache* is the computer's ability to store more information in a special location.
New browser versions have the ability to see what cookies are left behind, and whether they are willing to accept a cookie. All cookies must be accepted in order for the Home Banking software to operate. Each cookie is required to move you along in Home Banking. It does not allow you to input a URL to get inside the Home Banking session.
As there are a number of cookies within our secured site, you may want to turn off the cookie alert during your Home Banking session. It can always be enabled later. Slower computers may time out accepting multiple cookies.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR
AMERICA ONLINE USERS

America Online provides a browser within their software for connecting to the Internet. Depending on the version you are using, either Web Crawler or Microsoft Internet Explorer, use the following chart to determine if your software is compatible with Home Banking.
OPERATING
SYSTEM
BROWSER
VERSION
COMPATIBLE?
Windows 95
Windows 98
AOL 3.x (all) No
AOL 4.x (128-bit encryption) Yes
AOL 5.0 Preview 3 No
AOL 5.x (128-bit encryption) Yes
Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x No
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.x Yes
Netscape Navigator 3.x No
Netscape 4.51 or greater Yes
Windows 3.1 AOL (all) No
Macintosh AOL 3.0 (all) No
AOL 4.0 (all) No
AOL 5.0 Preview No
AOL 5.0 Yes

To access Home Banking you will need to be using AOL's 32-bit version software (with 128bit encryption). Currently we support the 32-bit AOL version 4.0 and 5.0 browsers.

The 16-bit version does not support JavaScriptTM and has no Java controls under preferences. The 32-bit version does support the newer JavaScriptTM and has Java controls under preferences. AXIS Online Banking uses JavaScriptTM to perform input validation and requires this capability. There should be no problems with the 32-bit version.

If you are a Windows 3.1 user, your operating system supports only the 16-bit version of the AOL software. Software versions using 16-bits software will not work with Home Banking and you will need to upgrade to a 32-bit version. If you are using an older computer, you may need to check with the manufacturer to see if you need to upgrade your system.

If you are using Windows 95 and above, you will be able to run the 32-bit version of the AOL software.

Macintosh information:

Currently the America Online For Macintosh Version 4.0 will work with Home Banking. The minimum system requirements recommended by AOL are as follows: 32 megs of ram, 7.5.3 operating system, 30 megs of disk space, a 14.4 modem, PowerPC or a 68040 processor. (This software will run on an IMAC using 8.3 operating system.)

To get past this problem:
  • Download Netscape Communicator 4.7 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 (these two browsers have the latest JavaScript engines and are Y2K compliant). Use either of these as your browser. AOL allows you to log on, minimize, and then open either of these browsers.

    or
  • Use another Internet service provider (besides AOL) that supports a browser that can use JavaScript TM.

AOL has released two versions of AOL 5.0 (AOL 5.0 Preview and the AOL 5.0 full version). The AOL 5.0 Preview Version is the beta version of AOL 5.0, and it installs the Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 browser with it. Because of difficulties found with this product while using the Home Banking platform, it is highly recommended to upgrade to the full version of AOL 5.0.

AOL 4.0 (128-bit encryption) uses Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0, and it works well with Home Banking. There may be some cases where a server error is received after completing a transfer. The complete message is:

"Server Error: This server has encountered an internal error which prevents it from fulfilling your request. The most likely cause is a misconfiguration. Please ask the administrator to look for messages in the server's error log."

This misconfiguration is caused by Microsoft Internet Explorer (4.0 or greater) when it is installed on a computer before AOL 4.0 software. When AOL 4.0 is installed, the files may become corrupt; however, most AOL 4.0 users will not experience this problem. If this error is experienced, download Netscape's most recent browser version. Upgrades can be found at Netscape's Web site, www.netscape.com.

If problems are encountered with AOL:
  • Download Netscape Communicator 4.51 or greater, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0, or any other browser that supports JavaScript TM, and use that as the browser. AOL allows the user to log on and then open a new browser.

    or
  • Use another Internet Service Provider (besides AOL) that supports a browser that can use JavaScript TM.
If your software is not compatible, perform the following steps:
  1. Upgrade to Windows 95 and AOL Browser 4.0 (128-bit encryption) or greater.

      If you are using an older computer, you may need to check with the manufacturer to see if you need to upgrade your system.

Incompatible browsers may cause the following problems:
  •  
A blank screen.
  •  
An alert to enable JavaScriptTM.
  •  
Repetitive requests for the password.
  •  
Problems retrieving previous history.
  •  
Problems with the download function.
IMPORTANT: It is suggested that you download an upgraded browser (Netscape 4.51 or greater, or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater). AOL provides download instructions or go directly to the Netscape or Microsoft Web site. Once the browser is downloaded, use it in conjunction with AOL.
