Over the past few months I have been working on and off to deploy SSL to Zebra Finch Forum.

I am please to say that today I have final ironed out the bugs so that the SSL certificate is now being signed by all web browsers.

What is SSL?

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) was the most widely deployed cryptographic protocol to provide security over internet communications before it was preceded by TLS (Transport Layer Security) in 1999. Despite the deprecation of the SSL protocol and the adoption of TLS in its place, most people still refer to this type of technology as ‘SSL’.

SSL provides a secure channel between two machines or devices operating over the internet or an internal network. One common example is when SSL is used to secure communication between a web browser and a web server. This turns a website's address from HTTP to HTTPS, the ‘S’ standing for ‘secure’.

How Do I Know a Website is Secure with SSL?

Technically, SSL is a transparent protocol which requires little interaction from the end user when establishing a secure session. In the case of a browser, you can tell if a site is using SSL when a padlock is displayed or the address bar shows the URL as HTTPS instead of HTTP.

Why Do I Need SSL?

With so much of our day to day transactions and communications happening online, there is very little reason for not using SSL. SSL supports the following information security principles:

Encryption: protect data transmissions (e.g. browser to server, server to server, application to server, etc.)

Authentication: ensure the server you’re connected to is actually the correct server.

Data integrity: ensure that the data that is requested or submitted is what is actually delivered.

I hope this gives you a small example of why we needed to move to HTTPS/SSL.

Hallo again everyone.  It's been a while since I managed to get to  the computer without my 'Mum' seeing me.  (I do have a 'Blog' on here but this is just a quick note)

This morning I got a good opportunity to get what I spied I would like after my 'Mum'  had let me out of my cage and she had gone to get something.  Fortunately for me she left the plate with 

the toast sitting near my cage and she had cut off the crust (think it was meant for Rabelou (the Chihuahua) but he gets plenty anyway so this was going to be mine- )

Good ! she's not back yet.

Now I'm getting a lecture about stealing, so I'm off!!

'Mum' can't reach up here -so! I'm going to have a nice breakfast too even although I've stolen it
I'll be back again sometime -that's if 'Mum' hasn't 'imprisoned me or sent me to a new home!
