Inspired by many discussions on Internet security and application development I began to protect some of my domains with SSL certificates and https: // in the last few days.
I started with download.tschoessow.org, which is the subdomain for to download my software. I setup a redirect to https: // even if only http: // was requested. This makes it transparent for potential “downloaders” without changing all my links to https://. In the near future other domains will follow.
In addition, I started again to sign my software or setups by Authenticode. I had done this a few years ago already for a long time, but I stopped some years ago due to lack of affordable sources for certificates.
