Description

Securing the transport layer of any application talking over the web is becoming an absolutely essential attribute of modern software. However, HTTPS is frequently not implemented due to perceived (rather than actual) barriers and when it is, it's often done poorly. Not only that, but many modern browser features that can help streamline secure communications (and actually make it more efficient and resilient) are rarely used. In this course, What Every Developer Must Know About HTTPS, you will learn all about why you need HTTPS. First, you'll learn the many positive things that HTTPS does. Next, you'll learn about what many people perceive as barriers to HTTP adoption. Finally, you'll spend some time exploring some topics that go outside of the the basics of HTTPS. By the end of this course, you'll have a fundamental knowledge to both implement HTTPS properly from the outset and retrofit it to existing applications.
