    Moving AP to https (secure) due to Apple, Google et. al.

    This year Apple, Google (Chrome), and other major players are going to enforce a requirement https (secure http) on sites like AusPhotography.

    Any site requiring a logon or connection via an app (eg. Tapatalk) will be required to have encrypted service. This also applies to sub-sites like the shop.

    What does this mean for AusPhotography and our members?


    1. We will need to purchase and install a wild-card SSL certificate for the site and it's sub domains (you can make a donation to help )
    2. You may in the interim see warnings from browsers like Chrome saying we are not encrypted
    3. You will need to change your bookmarks (although we will have auto redirection for the old format)


    Once this is implemented you should not see any significant performance difference or change to site content.

    Google blog note: https://security.googleblog.com/2016...ecure-web.html (read if you want to know more)

    To help users browse the web safely, Chrome indicates connection security with an icon in the address bar. Historically, Chrome has not explicitly labelled HTTP connections as non-secure. Beginning in January 2017 (Chrome 56), we’ll mark HTTP pages that collect passwords or credit cards as non-secure, as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure.

    What sort of a donation would be required? I am happy to add some do-re-mi to assist. Maybe a request from the regular members would be a good idea. I have no idea of the cost involved, but if it is $1,000 and we have 50 regular members then we only need to chip in $20 which is very reasonable given the service we get.

    You mean it's not secure? (Joke Joyce). Just as well I didn't buy anything.
    On a serious note does this mean that all these new addresses will be secure ie free from hacking/ spam. We already have secure sites when banking/purchasing goods online. Cheers
