You might have noticed the site URL no longer comes with a warning of ‘Not Secure!” and instead shows a little padlock before the domain name.

Oh yeah! We are now “certified”. 🙂

SSL Certified

With a growing number of browsers no longer letting people access http sites, I went out and updated SockDiva.com to https. What that means – and for those who like tech talk:

“Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser, or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook).

SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text – leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server, they can see and use that information.

More specifically, SSL is a security protocol. Protocols describe how algorithms should be used. In this case, the SSL protocol determines variables of the encryption for both the link and the data being transmitted.

All browsers have the capability to interact with secured web servers using the SSL protocol. However, the browser and the server need what is called an SSL Certificate to be able to establish a secure connection.

SSL secures millions of peoples’ data on the Internet every day, especially during online transactions or when transmitting confidential information. Internet users have come to associate their online security with the lock icon that comes with an SSL-secured website or green address bar that comes with an Extended Validation SSL-secured website. SSL-secured websites also begin with https rather than http.”

It is February and I missed January all together. The last Month has been a little hectic with parties and doctors and new eating plans etc… apparently my intermittent fasting has been working well. My pharmacist said he has noticed a difference in me.  Can say I feel quite appreciative.

Knitting and crochet has been a little on the back foot as I begin Muninn again. This time no beads but in black and possibly blood moon. I am making sure to write every step down this time and I’m charging up the GoPro  so I can take some choice pics of the different steps I do just to make it clear.

Yesterday, I also sent some of Raxor’s super springy to the U.S. so Bizzy Crochet can do some test knitting for me. I have to also thank the lovely Yvonne for doing some knitting for me also. This being said, if you are interested in doing some test knitting for me, drop me a line… here at sockdiva.
