15.2. Secure Connections#


This is an optional milestone.

In order for users to safely login to your site or to handle any kind of private or payment information browsers must be able to connect using HTTPS. Using HTTPS not only ensures that a site is who they claim to be but it also makes sure that an attacker cannot see the communication between the browser and the site.
