TLS…? Yes!

By Kevin Meynell Content and Resource Manager

TLS badgeWe’re currently making an effort to build out our TLS for Applications resources, and we’re pleased to announce some updates.

First up, we’ve added a TLS Basics page which answers some of the questions about what TLS is, how it works, and why you should deploy it. If you need more detail, it’s worth checking out the SSL/TLS: What’s Under the Hood? paper from the SANS Institute.

We’ve also added links to a couple of other research papers from UC Berkeley on some TLS related issues, which can be found on our new TLS Reports page.

There are several tools available for checking a server’s TLS protocol support, and those that we’re aware of can be found on our TLS Tools page. We’re always happy to add other useful tools if you let us know about them.

And in case we haven’t mentioned it before ;-), Let’s Encrypt is offering free digital certificates with the view to increasing overall deployment of TLS. So there’s now even fewer excuses for not make the Internet more secure!

Finally, we’re also interested to hear from anyone who has implemented TLS and can share their experience as a case study, or who’d be willing to share other configuration and/or deployment information that others might find useful. If so, don’t hesitate to contact us.
