The Importance of Securing Your Websites Connection

HTTP NOT SECUREToday we are going to be talking about securing the connection to your website, and why it is important that you do so as soon as possible. I recently caused a bit of a stir, in the information security community, with my opinion on https and the recent push being initiated by Google, which will be followed by other browsers soon.

While my opinion remained, I did change my thoughts on the importance of HTTPS and even took two minutes to move forward with securing my own website connection. That's right it took about two minutes maybe less, it was literally 3 clicks from cPanel.

SSL/TLS Pushers Strike Back


In an earlier blog I spoke of my disapproval for the way Google will be flagging websites that are not on SSL/TLS connections. In summary, any website that uses "http" instead of "https" will be flagged and marked with a notice that states the websites connection is not secure. Well that post got some attention on Twitter. 

Before I get into all of the good stuff.. Let me make some things clear. I am not an expert in information security. I am not an expert in web security. I know a little more than the basics, but I am by no means an expert. I specialize in branding and design. I did make some statements in my previous blog that are not 100% accurate, and after this post, I will correct them. However the purpose of my blog was not to educate, it was to voice an opinion. That opinion has not changed. I do believe the way Google is pushing this https issue is misleading. Now here is what went down...

It started with Wordpress Medic, (give him a follow, he's a pretty smart guy) retweeting my twitter post about all of this ssl https stuff and tagged Troy Hunt, an Australian web security expert, with connections to Microsoft, he is well known in the information security industry with over 107,000 twitter followers..  I have to mention Scott Helme, he was an integral part of my flash education. There was a few others, I definitely can't name them all... But back to Mr. Medic, he posted another link to my twitter post suggesting I check it out. The link made many claims about https, that I believed to be untrue. Apparently I was wrong(we'll get to that). Mr. Medic and I go back and forth a few times, and then comes the explosion of notifications...

Google Chrome will start marking most websites insecure come July

UPDATE 7-1-18: After quite an uprising on my Twitter post. I have come to realize some of these statemnts are not 100% accurate. I will be marking this page up accordingly to reflect and correct those wrongs. My opinion that this push for HTTPS is misleading, still remains.

Google, in an effort to force websites to obtain SSL certificates, will be marking website connections without them as "insecure" on the Google Chrome browser. But is this true? Are websites without SSL certificates insecure?

What is an SSL Certificate?


In plain terms, an SSL certificate is basically software on a server that encrypts data that is being entered into a website by a user and protects  the websites data as it bounces through the internet.
