New Video: Digital Privacy: An Introduction to HTTPS
We post and discuss about digital privacy often on infoDOCKET especially as it relates to libraries and believe a basic understanding of key privacy issues and technology is essential for librarians.
One topic that we’ve mentioned a lot in the past year has been HTTPS, a popular type of encryption that helps secure data as it moves across the Internet.
Recently, 18F, the digital design and development inside the General Services Administration (US Fed. Government), conducted a webinar that provided an introduction to HTTPS.
We’ve embedded the 66 minute video below and also recommend taking reviewing “What Every Librarian Needs to Know About HTTPS” from the Electronic Frontier Foundation
