HTTPS Enforcement For Firefox

Post by Tinman57 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 2:15 am

Mozilla Adding More Stringent HTTPS Enforcement to Firefox
Mozilla is adding an extra layer of security in its Firefox browser by implementing HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), a mechanism that will force some sites into establishing a secure, HTTPS connection with the browser if its presented with the right certificate.

From the article in Tinman's link:

"The feature is currently in Firefox Beta, yet given its usual release schedule, should see the light of day in a few weeks in Firefox 17."
