EFF on HTTPS

by Chandler on October 31, 2011

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published a report on the State of HTTPS Security that promises to be the first in a series and is well worth reading on its own.

The TL;DR version:  HTTPS adoption is growing rapidly, but the current system, especially the Certificate Authorities, has much room for improvement before it actually delivers the level of security that HTTPS implies.

Also, if you’re on Firefox and don’t already use it, EFF’s HTTPS Everywhere Plug-In is now officially 1.0.
