In order to improve the experiences of our end users, the IF4IT has implemented Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) as a means of better securing, both, publicly available content and members-only content. SSL is a standard World-Wide-Web (WWW) security technology for securing web sites and their contents by establishing encrypted links between the site’s web server and an end user’s browser. This encrypted link ensures that all data being transferred or communicated between the web server and end user browsers is kept private.
The conversion was implemented and took effect in February of 2017.
