Does your entire web site require HTTPS? If it doesn't now, it better soon. Browser vendors have been pushing us in that direction for a while, requiring HTTPS to use new features like HTTP/2 and service workers. Recently Chrome also decided to mark pages as "not secure" if they have a form field on a page with HTTP. Discover the many benefits of using HTTPS beyond just confidentiality. Learn about the misconceptions around HTTPS, and that it isn't as hard to implement as you think.

You will learn:

  • Common misconceptions about HTTPS
  • The major benefits of a web site that complete uses HTTPS
  • Techniques for converting your existing web site
