HTTPS is a protocol for securing internet communication and consists of normal HTTP communication over connection encrypted by Transport Layer Security. The main motivation for HTTPS is authentication of the visited website and protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data.
Today, there is no such thing as non-sensitive web traffic, and public services should not depend on the benevolence of network operators. Every unencrypted HTTP request reveals information about a user’s behaviour, and the interception and tracking of unencrypted browsing have become commonplace.
When properly configured, HTTPS could improve the website's speed and provide a secure connection that offers the level of privacy and reliability that users should expect when browsing online. Thanks to LetsEncrypt it is also now completely free for anyone to get a certificate, and browsers will soon mark websites with HTTP as "Not Secure".
Therefore I ask, please, could ibiblio add support for HTTPS on ibiblio.com and other sites it's hosting?
