Google wants to http in all browsers unsafe mark




The Google Chrome Security Team wants all web browsers display a warning when someone visits a site through the “unsafe” http. In this way, the Internet giant to create awareness among users worldwide.

For now, it is a proposal and would everyone still have a say about be able to do, the team found. Nevertheless believes the Chrome Security Team that showing a warning when an unsecured connection to the security of Internet users benefit because they can then informed decision to proceed via HTTP.

The security team of Google thinks that there are three levels of security for sites that browsers can distinguish. Below the first level are sites all offered via https. The second is ‘iffy’ as a valid SSL certificate contains, for example TLS errors. Finally, there is the unsafe level, wherein a site is via http fully served if there is just an invalid certificate.

By showing the three levels in a browser, possibly by a certain color in the navigation bar, users can be better informed about safety. “The only situation in which Web browsers users are guaranteed not to warn, is exactly when they have no chance of safety, ie when the site via http is offered,” says the Chrome Security Team.

Google says team for next year to start with a plan to roll out such functionality in their browser, Chrome. The team encourages other browser makers to think and eventually come up with a similar solution.
