Surely not too much to ask to have the server running with SSL

 

Let's Encrypt

Sure, we exchange lots of sensitive information, I wonder why exactly noone thought of this basic protection.

clear, there is coming a more impressive Standard as only ssl...
why not use the coming Standard, if we are already thinking about...
then let'z make it right !

Buy a Computer parts with hard and real Money, build it up, buy a Safe,
put it in, drill 3 hole's, stream, Monitor and Network.. and close the Safe ..

and don't let a NSA-Employee in the Room !

(who see the fail ?! )

best regards
Blacky

I'll 2nd this but.....I really dont think we need it. The most sensitive info we exchange with the server would be our passwords, not much else. I totally understand SSL being mandatory on say, a banking website, but here not so much. As for reboot.pro having a valid cert....doesn't it already have one?

 

I say, if the NSA wants our booting methods, let them have it.I see no harm in them using GRUB4DOS to power up their supercomputers.

@Blackcrack,

 

Good luck to your security customers...

 

But I suppose there is really nothing here that is of interest, but to very few

A couple of reasons I can think of...

 

1. Chrome now displays a 'not secure' flag on all http:// sites

2. Google ranks http sites lower than https in their search engine results

 

If it is easy to do, I would think it would be worth doing?

Well, most probably more people would care if the request was actually motivated, at least Steve6375 has given a couple (whether relevant or not being of course up to debate) possible reasons why :good: , you didn't yet.

Example:
Idea  :lightbulb: 
Why not encrypting all attachments with PGP and putting up a server for providing the keys to members only, after 2FA? :dubbio:

in this options do you have right !
easy coming in and tell "hey, why not ssl" without justifications ,
feels like a children ..  "mama, i want eat...waheeaaaa"

You obviously have experience of needing to justify each & every action.

But some actions do not need justification

 

It would be valid suggestion if asking to change the forum colour scheme, but NOT to use SSL in 2019

Guys, I am more than happy to help here.

 

Nowadays, it is possible to get a secured while free cert.

It may also be that our hosting platform provides such a service (to be checked).

 

And, yes, I care :)

 

I'll have a word with Nuno and see if this is something to add on the migration to come.

I too think that SSL would be useful.
