Today I spent a little bit of time doing something that benefits everybody. I know a lot of people probably won't know what I'm talking about since I've always had SSL on all my sites for your protection, but I'm talking about the TLS version I'm running. Over the years there have been many versions of encryption methods to secure your communications and what you are doing on the internet from ISP's and other spying eyes, but they all eventually succumb to attacks or just become weak to powerful computers hardware.
Today I moved all internet-facing sites over to TLSv1.3, the latest and greatest and one that hasn't been compromised yet, or at least that anybody knows or admits to. While its all very complex and really I won't even begin to pretend I know what I'm talking about here, what it boils down to is that more bits are encrypted with bigger hashing algorithms and so on to provide an even more secure communication than previously was had with TLSv1.2.
Now there are still browsers and such out there that don't support v1.3 and that's fine as I still provide v1.2, someday I'll disable that though to keep myself and all my sites secure, after all, we don't want the bad guys stealing our memes do we?
I thought I'd take the time to let you know, if you care, for now, though that's all! Take care and keep coding!
