How’s it going, world?
Since last time, we’ve done some modifications as all you out there could see, and the most important one is that we’ve migrated our connection to a secured one. See that green lock in front of “https://” from the url adress bar ? Yep, that’s it.
Ok, what does that mean, some of you ask maybe. Well, let us tell you…
The Advantages Of HTTPS
Obviously, the major benefit of encrypting connections to and from a site is that they can’t read by any third-party. It will no longer be possible for anyone to snag data flowing between the website and the users from the air. But, a number of other benefits come along with SSL.
A certificate guarantees the information a browser is receiving originates at the expected domain. It’s a guarantee that when a user sends sensitive data, it’s being sent to the right place, and not to a malicious third-party.
If data is sent in the clear, it’s possible for a third-party to sit between the server and the browser and read everything, But, even worse, if they can read it, they can change it. By hijacking a connection, a hacker can see what the browser is requesting and the site is sending; they can intercept the data sent by the site and alter it before sending it on to the browser — the user would never know.
HTTPS connections make this sort of man-in-the-middle attack much more difficult to pull off.
Finally, that green padlock indicates that we take security seriously and helps give users confidence.
