  1. Microsoft Edge to add automatic HTTPS option for all domains Microsoft Edge will automatically redirect users to a secure HTTPS connection when visiting websites using the HTTP protocol, starting with version 92, coming in late July. By default, this new option will allow Edge users to switch from HTTP to HTTPS on websites that are likely to support the more secure protocol. However, users will also be able to configure the browser to upgrade all connections to HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) as the default internet communication protocol fo
  2. Maybe you were once advised to “look for the padlock” as a means of telling legitimate e-commerce sites from phishing or malware traps. Unfortunately, this has never been more useless advice. New research indicates that half of all phishing scams are now hosted on Web sites whose Internet address includes the padlock and begins with “https://”. A live Paypal phishing site that uses https:// (has the green padlock). Recent data from anti-phishing company PhishLabs shows that 49 percent of all phishing sites in the third quarter of 2018 bore the padlock securi
  3. Google plans to test DNS over HTTPS in Chrome 78 Google revealed plans to test the company's implementation of DNS over HTTPS (DoH) in Chrome 78. DNS over HTTPS aims to improve security and privacy of DNS requests by utilizing HTTPS. The current stable version of Chrome is 77 released on September 10, 2019. Google notes that DoH prevents other WiFi users from seeing visited websites; common attacks such as spoofing or pharming could potentially be prevented by using DoH. Google decided to test the DoH implementation in a different way than Mozilla. Mo
  4. Mozilla plans to roll out DNS over HTTPS to US users in late September 2019 Starting in late September 2019, DNS over HTTPS (DoH) is going to be rolled out to Firefox users in the United States. DNS over HTTPS encrypts DNS requests to improve security and privacy of these requests. Most DNS requests happen in the open currently; anyone listening to the traffic gets records of site and IP addresses that were looked up while using an Internet connection among other things. DoH encrypts the traffic and while that looks good on first glance, it needs to b
  5. Cloudflare aims to make HTTPS certificates safe from BGP hijacking attacks Free service prevents BGP hijackers from fraudulently obtaining browser-trusted certs. Enlarge nternet1.jpg by Rock1997 modified. Content delivery network Cloudflare is introducing a free service designed to make it harder for browser-trusted HTTPS certificates to fall into the hands of bad guys who exploit Internet weaknesses at the time the certificates are issued. The attacks were described in a paper published last year tit
  6. Bon anniversaire, Let’s Encrypt! The free-to-use nonprofit was founded in 2014 in part by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and is backed by Akamai, Google, Facebook, Mozilla and more. Three years ago Friday, it issued its first certificate. Since then, the numbers have exploded. To date, more than 380 million certificates have been issued on 129 million unique domains. That also makes it the largest certificate issuer in the world, by far. Now, 75 percent of all Firefox traffic is HTTPS, according to public Firefox data — in part thanks to Let’s Encry
  7. What is this?# I've been writing about Google's efforts to deprecate HTTP, the protocol of the web. This is a summary of why I am opposed to it. DW Their pitch# Advocates of deprecating HTTP make three main points: Something bad could happen to my pages in transit from a server to the user's web browser. It's not hard to convert to HTTPS and it doesn't cost a lot. Google is going to warn people about my site being "not secure." So if I don't want people
  8. Linux documentation switches to HTTPS to boost security Several commits have been made to the Linux kernel in recent days and weeks which switch links in the kernel’s documentation from HTTP to the more secure HTTPS protocol. According to commit logs made by Alexander Klimov, the switch to HTTPS should reduce the likelihood of man-in-the-middle attacks against kernel developers. To ensure that links do not break when switched to the more secure protocol, tests were run to ensure pages loaded in the same manner. While it’s a welcome change which sho
  9. Microsoft will integrate DNS over HTTPS in Windows 10 Microsoft revealed plans to integrate native support for DNS over HTTPS in the company's Windows 10 operating system in November 2019. The announcement was made on Microsoft's Networking blog on November 17, 2019. DNS over HTTPS is designed to improve privacy, security and the reliability by encrypting DNS queries that are handled in plaintext currently. DNS over HTTPS has been on the rise lately. Mozilla, Google, Opera as as well as several public DNS providers announced support for the standard.
  10. Firefox 76 gets optional HTTPS-only mode Mozilla plans to introduce an optional HTTPS-only mode in Firefox 76 which only allows connections to HTTPS sites. Most Internet sites use HTTPS already to improve the security of connections. HTTPS encrypts the connection which protects against manipulation and also blocks the logging of activity. Firefox users may soon enable an option in the web browser to allow only HTTPS connections; this sounds very similar to how HTTPS Everywhere operates. The browser extension tries to upgrade unencrypted resources to e
  11. Firefox 80: HTTPS-only Mode in Settings Mozilla added an optional HTTPS-only mode to Firefox 76 Nightly back in March 2020. The organization's engineers have now added the mode to the settings of Firefox 80 Nightly, and it is likely that users of other Firefox channel versions, e.g. Firefox Stable, will be able to configure the mode once their version of the browser is updated to Firefox 80. HTTPS-Only Mode is designed to enforce HTTPS on sites. It works similarly to HTTPS Everywhere and other HTTPS upgrade extensions for browsers in that it attempts to upgrade HTTP co
  12. Mozilla revamps Firefox's HTTPS address bar information Mozilla plans to make changes to the information that the organization's Firefox browser displays in its address bar when it connects to sites. Firefox displays an i-icon and a lock symbol currently when connecting to sites. The i-icon displays information about the security of the connection, content blocking, and permissions, the lock icon indicates the security state of the connection visually. A green lock indicates a secure connection and if a site has an Extended Validation certificate, the name of the compa
