Thank to Andrej and his help, I have increase so called security of this blog of mine. If all is working well you should be browsing these pages only over secure connection https and you should see padlock icon in your browser.
It all started when you received new post notification with links over secure https. Those links didn’t work properly, mainly because the certificate which was in use has been created and signed by myself and therefore not trusted. As a first step, I needed to get real certificate. You may heard about initiative called Let’s encrypt. They provide simple way to get real certificate. It is not really any huge security, but get’s me certificate which is recognized by all up to date browsers. This means if your browser complains about certificate, you may need to update it.
Second step was not to have any links to unsecure http connection linked from my pages. This was and still is quite challenging. WordPress, the system which is backend of this blog, for what a crazy reasons, is not very good in keeping consistent use of absolute or relative paths. It mostly use hardcoded urls. Anyway I tried to find most of the situations. Now I would like to ask you for a help. If you come to situation when something is not loaded properly, image perhaps, or the padlock in browser disappears or gets crossed, let me know which page (URL) it is and I will try to fix it.
As a side effect Google should start rating these pages of mine higher, because they supposed to be seen as secured and trusted. On the other hand all this encryption require extra CPU power, which lack of may be seen by you as little longer time to download the page.
We shall see how all this will reflect, but one thing is clear internet is heading for this direction so I may as well.
Thank you for your kind help with reporting all the thing you may encounter in the following days.
