Cracking RC4. On paper, TLS supports a variety of strong encryption algorithms. In practice, about half of all TLS traffic is secured with the creaky old RC4 cipher. And this should worry you –

Michael Mann

Wow there’s def a couple of websites I thought were secure, but I wasn’t thinking about my own access being exploited

SSL has some interesting implications for HTTP/2, specifically how we serve assets on WordPress sites.

@AdamThomson I believe PayPal has its own.

Adam Thomson

Oh sorry

Adam Thomson

I have a client who sells a lot online, but they leave to Paypal to make the transaction. I use WordFence inc. firewall. Do they need SSL?

Kevin Hoffman

Jason Tucker

“The reason this doesn’t work in IE6 is that the server is using SNI to deduce what certificate to return. XP (and thus IE6) doesn’t support SNI in the HTTPS stack. See for details.”

David Bell

@JeffHester Yeah, that is probably it.

Jeff Hester

@Cape_Dave I have a pro account… maybe only at that level and above?

Bridget Willard

@AdamThomson Totally!

David Bell

@JeffHester SSL? I have a personal account with them and SSL is not included.

Adam Thomson

Dustin Meza said the best thing about WP security at WCOC. “Its bad (plugin) code thats not secure, Its people who dont update thats not secure, but WordPress core is VERY secure”. I’m going to use that for everyone that asks me about WP security from now on.

Adam Thomson

There’s the stigma out there…

David Margowsky

Cool shirts yo.

Jeff Hester

It’s included free with wpengine

Jonathan Denwood

Wasn’t Google planning to force people to use Https ? However they seem to have backed off from this position.

Bridget Willard

Kevin Hoffman
