Why and How to Encrypt the Web

March 11, 2013 - 12:00pm
Stanford University

The EFF has been engaged in a series of projects to encrypt the entire Web, retiring the insecure HTTP protocol, and ensuring that "HTTPS" actually delivers what it promises. These projects include HTTPS Everywhere, the SSL Observatory, Sovereign Keys, and efforts to persuade major sites to deploy HTTPS. In this talk EFF's Technology Projects Director Peter Eckersley will give an overview of these projects, the significant progress they have made to date, and the work that remains to be done.

Further details available from the Stanford CISAC page for the event.
