There is an effort underway by some of the larger Internet infrastructure companies to encrypt as much of the network as possible. Google has been working on this for several years, making HTTPS connections the default for many of its services, and CloudFlare has done a lot of work on this as well. This week CloudFlare role out three new major encryption services, TLS 1.3, opportunistic encryption, and automatic HTTPS rewrites. Dennis Fisher spoke with Nick Sullivan, CloudFlare’s head of crypto, about the changes and what they mean for the future of the web.
