Https

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to provide encrypted communication and secure identification of a network web server.

Ssl

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a cryptographic protocol that provides secure communications over the Internet



File accessible http

Example

"Server authentication for free https ssl doesn t only solve encryption but also server authentication so that the client can verify whether it s actually talking to the right service;guaranteed to work on the internet http https traffic is common on the internet so you won t run into routing problems or firewalls which are hard to traverse"

Others

Example

This still leaves the possibility of mitm attacks but performing an mitm attack on an ssl connection isn t entirely trivial so it s probably not an attack vector you need to be too concerned with;you can muck around with client-side hashing but in general posting the credentials over a secure https connection is considered sufficient

It s not difficult and ssl certificates aren t expensive startcom s free startssl certs might be sufficient for your purposes;if https is really too much work assuming you re using custom session-management code it s not too difficult to return a random mac key on login and sign future requests using the key and a sequence number to prevent replays

Another edit as pointed out in a comment below remember that ssl tls isn t the only solution to all your site s security needs there is still a lot of other considerations but it does solve a few security issues for the users and solves them well even though there are ways to do a man-in-the-middle even with ssl tls;it is highly recommended these days to run the entire site on tls https that is if possible

See the blog post all new sites on netlify are https by default and this issue on github issue #158 disabling forced ssl even for old sites the option to turn off https or to turn off the redirect to https is no longer available

However the wide availability of ssl tls stacks on various languages platforms os makes it rather convenient for many applications to protect the communication between the client and the server via https;not using https doesn t mean that your system is going to be insecure although it might require a bit of work to protect the data

from question

from question  

SSL slowness in EC2

After installing ssl and making all pages https by using htaccess i realised that my website actually cannot run with https because it has a lot of embeded code with http protocol which cannot be changed to https or removed but simply removing the rewrite rule which forces https does not work because google has indexed all pages with https so now most part of the google search traffic goes to https version of website and they see mixed content error. i tried to implement examples that i found in forums but when i apply this code the browser always redirects from to here is the full code from .htaccess file
