VUC526 – MoreCrypto Series: Moving the Web to HTTPS

Event: Friday January 30th, 2015 at 12 Noon EST (5pm UK)

All audio versions are here



DanielAppelquistDaniel Appelquist, who describes himself as an “open web advocate”, joins us to talk about TLS on the web: some good reasons for using it and the common objections to it. As someone with a very wide experience in IP and network communications, a session with Dan and our VUC regulars should be excellent!

Dan is also a co-chair of the W3C Technical Architecture Group (W3C TAG). The TAG is a special working group within the W3C, chartered (under the W3C Process Document) with stewardship of the Web architecture.
