In Warsaw, on the 7th of December, 2010 there was held a second seminar in the series of Computerization of Cultural Institutions – Cultural Institutions on the Internet.

Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center Security Team conducted a set of comparative tests of Web browsers, addressing resilience to attacks on SSL/TLS encrypted tunnels.

Recently Europeana has crossed the level of 10 million objects. Because of this we have decided to calculate again some simple statistics regarding the participation of Polish resources in Europeana.

As you may remember, in similar statistics prepared by us on the 29 of March this year Poland was on the 6th place, with a share about 4,5%.
