    Jessica Gardner: SSL- What It Is, How To Do It, and Why You Should Care

    WordCamp Chicago 2017Speaker: Jessica Gardner

    August 31, 2017 — Did you know that data entered into a website form is often passed across the Internet in plain text? Sensitive information such as addresses, credit card numbers, or other personal data is vulnerable to being intercepted by clever yet malicious trolls. SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is a security technology that encrypts data passed between a web server and a browser, rendering sensitive data into a garbled hodgepodge of meaningless character strings. Using SSL to serve up your content can give you (and your users) peace of mind. It can also greatly impact how Google ranks your site. This presentation will go over the fundamentals of SSL and demonstrate real-world methods for its implementation on WordPress installations.

  • Nancy Thanki: Let’s Encrypt! Wait. How? Why?

    Nancy Thanki: Let’s Encrypt! Wait. How? Why?

    WordCamp Pune 2017Speaker: Nancy Thanki

    May 7, 2017 — On December 3rd, 2015 a service called Let’s Encrypt entered its public beta. Backed by several major sponsors, the service caught on quickly. As of summer 2016, more than 5 million SSL certificates had been issued by Let’s Encrypt, nearly four million of which were active and unexpired.

    If you are not familiar, Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, open certificate authority that allows users to encrypt the data flowing to and from their websites easily and for free. The goal of Let’s Encrypt is to make data transfer over the internet secure by default. Towards that end, they have invested a considerable amount of time and energy in making it easy for users of all stripes to secure the data flowing in and out of their websites.

    You may have already considered encrypting your website before — perhaps to perform better in search engines, or to gain the ability to accept payments on your website. Regardless of whether you’ve considered enabling SSL on your website or not, the goal of this talk is to demonstrate why encryption on your website matters. We will look at some practical examples and live demos of what data can be stolen from your website, even if you are using an encrypted wifi connection. Likewise, we’ll talk about how encryption of all websites — whether they’re dealing with sensitive information or not — makes the web a safer place for all of us.

    Last, of course, we will look at how you can get started with Let’s Encrypt on your website. We’ll review the options available to you on common hosting providers, as well as walk through the steps for how you can set this up for yourself, if you have administrative access to your server.

    If you already have Let’s Encrypt enabled on your site, this talk may be basic for you (although we’ll do a few cool demos that make for great party tricks, so feel free to stop by).

    If you’ve never accessed your hosting provider’s website admin area (CPanel, Plesk, etc), this talk might be a bit hard for you to follow (although you should totally come and ask questions both during the presentation and after).

    If you have a website and you’ve thought about enabling SSL on it but you just haven’t gotten around to it yet, this talk will be perfect for you. By the end of this presentation, you should not only know how to enable encryption on your website, but you will understand why it’s so important that you do.

    It sounds like an intimidating topic, but we can do this. Come on and let’s encrypt!
