Protecting your website with an SSL/TLS certificate is no longer optional. HTTPS is used by Google as an SEO ranking signal, and web browsers actively alert users to insecure websites. Even if your website doesn’t handle sensitive customer information like credit card numbers, you can’t afford not to authenticate your website’s identity and encrypt the data traveling to and from users’ web browsers.
However, it can be difficult to wrap your head around all of the configuration options when setting up SSL/TLS. SSL.com’s new guide provides an overview of basic SSL/TLS Best Practices for 2019, including:
- Choosing a certificate authority (CA)
- Key generation
- Server configuration
- Web application design
- Diagnostic tools
After reading the guide, you will feel more confident about making the right decisions when securing your website!
