September 23rd, 2014

Tips on improving the SSL security on Nginx and Laravel Forge.

A interesting set of statistics and analysis for SSL standards across the web is reported by SSL Pulse. This shows that of the top 150,000 SSL enabled web sites examined 30.6% have SSL configured correctly.

This means that an amazing 69.4% of the top sites do not have SSL configured correctly!

They mention that the default SSL setup on Forge gives an A- rating which is better than 70% of those sites, and then show changes you can make to get to an A rating.
