Techdesigno in West Orange, NJ Wants You to Know That HTTPS Everywhere is Here
Techdesigno in West Orange, NJ wants website owners to know about HTTPS Everywhere initiative. What is HTTPS Everywhere you may ask? Well it’s a free and open-source browser extension that is used for popular browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Firefox for Android, which is developed collaboratively by The Tor Project and also the Electronic Frontier Foundation or (EFF). By doing this, it will make websites more secure by using the HTTPS connection instead of the traditional HTTP protocol. The goal is to make all website secure and safe for the transmission of private and confidential data when traversing over the Internet.
The development of the HTTPS Everywhere is very important. The HTTPS Everywhere was truly inspired by Google’s increased use of the HTTPS, and even the design to force the usage of HTTPS automatically whenever possible. It is said that the code, in part, is based on the NoSccript’s HTTP Strict Transport Security implementation.
When it comes to the SSL Observatory, it is a feature in the HTTPS Everywhere that was introduced in the version 2.0.1 that helps analyzes the public key certificate to determine if the certificate authorities haven been compromised, and if the user is vulnerable to the man-in-the-middle attacks.
