In this course, we're going to look at requiring HTTPS and ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core web applications. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how HTTPS works and the related protocols, requiring HTTPS for website users, and using HSTS to further protect your website. By the end of this course, you'll know how to set up your ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core websites to require users to interact over HTTPS.
