Here's Why Your Static Website Needs HTTPS

It was Jan last year that I suggested HTTPS adoption had passed the "tipping point" , that is, it had passed the moment of critical mass and as I said at the time, "will very shortly become the norm". Since that time, the percentage of web pages loaded over a secure connection has rocketed from 52% to 71% whilst …

Pwned Passwords V3 is Now Live!

Over recent weeks, I've begun planning the release of the 3rd version of Pwned Passwords. If you cast your mind back, version 1 came along in August last year and contained 320M passwords. I made all the data downloadable as SHA-1 hashes (for reasons explained in that post) and stood up a basic API to enable anyone …

Weekly Update 93

Geez it's nice to be home! I took a ride on the jet ski today which was just one of those typically perfect Gold Coast winters days at a balmy 24C. I cruised around the ocean with a pod of dolphins (probably a dozen of them), grabbed some prawns for lunch (not those "shrimp" you get other places, proper big prawns ), …

HTTPS Is Easy!

HTTPS is easy! In fact, it's so easy I decided to create 4 short videos around 5 minutes each to show people how to enable HTTPS on their site and get all traffic redirecting securely, optimise their HTTPS configuration to get it rating higher than most banks, fix any insecure references in a few clicks and finally, …

In this video, we discuss some of what we were planning to cover in that talk, namely HTTPS anti-vaxxers as Scott wrote about earlier in the week . And how did it go? Apparently, exceptionall…

An exciting weekly update - I got an award! I did write about it earlier this morning, but I talk about it more in this week's update and explain why it means a lot. In other news, I'm heading back to Europe in a few days from now so am doing the last-minute rush tying up loose ends here, finishing presentations and …
