Google Security Protocols & What it Means for your website

By | 11th January 2017

The time is now upon us and google has now started to roll version 56 dubbed the SSL version. Why is this important to you as a company? Well simply put it means your site will be indicated as not secure by google.

For the time being, however, this is only affecting members based websites and E-commerce, however, google plans to roll this out later in 2017 to all websites.

Chrome currently indicates HTTP connections with a neutral indicator,” writes Emily Schechter of the Chrome Security team. “This doesn’t reflect the true lack of security for HTTP connections. When you load a website over HTTP, someone else on the network can look at or modify the site before it gets to you.” That weakness can be used to inject malware seamlessly into unencrypted web traffic, commonly known as an injection attack.

A 2015 survey found roughly a third of web requests were served over HTTPS, and that percentage has certainly grown in the months since the survey was conducted. Google has also pushed for encryption on its own products, and as of March, roughly three-quarters of requests from Google products used HTTPS.
