SSL certificate
« on: January 03, 2018, 06:24:31 am »
The site now has a SSL certificate. With some (most?) browsers soon marking non-HTTPS sites as not secure, I figured this would ease people’s minds. Mind you, there’s nothing we do here that really requires this.

Just use https://www.metalcrypt.com (note the “s” after http). I’ll see about redirecting automatically from http to https later this week. ;)

The message board still has some images and links that are not secure (despite me changing the configuration), so if you don't see the lock icon in the address bar, that's all that is. I'll try to fix this when I get a chance. One hour yesterday didn't do the trick and I figured watching paint dry would be more fun.

I noticed Firefox doesn't freak out anymore when I log into the message boards telling me the site I'm trying to access isn't secure. I wouldn't want someone to hack my Metal Crypt ID, maybe they would write better reviews than me and make me look bad  :naughty:
