10 years of SSL in Opera

April 30, 2007

Opera’s Yngve Pettersen (who is one of the first Opera employees) just blogged about some of the technical aspects of implementing Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support in the Opera browser. SSL, in short, is the means which provide the secure communications over the Internet.

In addition to the history on Opera’s support of SSL, Yngve also explains the future of Opera’s SSL/Transport Layer Security (TLS) implementation.

    this forum/blog would work better with a proper *separate* sign-in…

    – easier to moderate
    – no chance of one person logging in under 1000’s of different names…. (and you can ‘ban’ the bad users!)

    – much better credibilty and trackability!
