SSL - Secure Socket Layer - Information Security

Recommended Posts

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a website and a browser.

For years, Google has been actively seeking ways to encourage website owners to implement SSL certificates. SSL allows websites to be accessed over HTTPS, which encrypts information sent between the visitor and web server. 

Google is moving from a reward system to a punitive one. Websites using SSL continue to get an SEO boost since it became a confirmed ranking signal in 2014, but we noticed a few months ago that Google was blacklisting non-HTTPS websites that allowed password fields and credit card forms to be filled.

In the near future Websites with any kind of text input will require an SSL certificate if they want to avoid a “Not Secure” warning in the address bar.

On any website that you enter a password into be sure you take a quick look unto the address bar...

If you do not see the little lock (Like we have) DO NOT SIGN IN, if the page is on http:// and not https:// DO NOT SIGN IN

And please PLEASE never insert any credit card information or email addresses on any unsecured website YOU ARE AT RISK

You can view our security certificate by clicking on the lock

Today Google Chrome announced that it will show a prominent “Not Secure” message in the browser bar starting in October 2018. Consider this your final warning. After October 2018 Chrome and likely all other Chrome based browsers like Vivaldi will display enhanced security warnings that may create higher bounce rates for your site and concomitantly lower sales and conversions.

Currently Google is displaying a green icon to indicate that a website is secure. Google reports that because so many sites are now secure, they will begin to flag the insecure sites with a prominent red warning.

Additionally Chrome will stop displaying the green icon for secure websites. The reasoning behind this decision is that HTTPS should be considered the default state of a website, particularly now that so many websites are secure. User expectations should be that a site is secure. Thus it makes sense that a warning should be reserved for a dangerous situation, not for a safe situation.

Did you have to run them through a proxy? I ran into that issue when folks were embedding YouTube videos on ours.
