A little FAQ of why SSL/TLS is important for dental websites


What is SSL/TLS
Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), both frequently referred to as “SSL”, are cryptographic protocols that provide communications security over a computer network

This makes the website connection over to my blog: private, authenticated and reliable Wikipedia

Great! So why is this important for a small website like yours?
Well, the last thing that would like you to do when browsing my website is to get infected with malware and have your data syphoned by a third party interception. So to provider a better piece of mind I have decided to increase the security of the website to make sure that your browsing experience is both safe and reliable.
What do I have to do in order to make the most out of this?
The code and certificate will be supplied automatically by our website and I have forced everyone to use the https:// protocol. For you as an end user: you do not need to do anything other than to check the lock symbol to make sure that you are secured when viewing this website.

*Yes, I have checked various major independent dental websites including co-operates (not including health insurance websites) and they are ALL SSL/TLS unsecure as of 23/08/2016. This means that any middle-of-the-man attack people can actually steal your information as you type and submit into this website.


Have a happy and safe browsing!
