The Sorry State of SSL

A session at PyCon 2014

Saturday 12th April, 2014

1:40pm to 2:25pm (EST)

Those web pages with shiny lock icons boasting that your data is safe because of “256 bit encryption”? They are lying. In times of mass surveillance and commercialized Internet crime you should know why that’s the case. This talk will give you an overview that will help you to assess your personal security more realistically and to make your applications as secure as possible against all odds.
