The Trusted sites zone
is a security zone for
sites that you think are safe to visit. You believe that the site is designed
with security in mind and that it can be trusted not to contain malicious
content. To add or remove sites from this zone, you can click the Sites button.
This will open a secondary window listing the sites that you trust and
permitting you to add or remove them. You may also require that only verified
sites (HTTPS) can be included in this zone. This gives you greater assurance
that the site you are visiting is the site that it claims to be.
The US-CERT recommends setting the
security level for the Trusted sites zone to Medium-high (or Medium for
Internet Explorer 6 and earlier).
