SSL progress for www.oppedahl.com

We at OPLF should have done it a long time ago … but finally today we have implemented SSL (“https”) for our main web site www.oppedahl.com.   In addition we have configured the SSL on https://www.oppedahl.com so that it uses PFS (perfect forward secrecy).  The domain name itself has for several years now been protected by DNSSEC.

One reason that a webmaster should implement SSL is that Google and the other search engines give a small boost in page ranking to a web site that supports SSL.

But the more important reason to implement SSL is simply to make web connections more secure.  Among other things SSL eliminates eavesdropping on a web connection.

If you haven’t already done so, you should implement SSL (and PFS, and DNSSEC) on the web sites that you operate.
