Google wants to start in 2016 warning of any non-HTTPS site in Chrome show




Google is working to make Chrome standard to indicate which sites offer encrypted connection. At sites without https connection, the browser displays a warning red cross next to the URL. Early this year, the function must be in the browser.

In a presentation at the Usenix Enigma security conference in San Francisco sent Chris Palmer, security engineer at Google, a picture of the New York Times Web site, where the red cross next to see the URL was, with the promise of more to come is. His colleague Parisa Tabriz let them know: “Http, we’re working to show what you are: not safe.” By default, Chrome shows a blank page at http sites, but Google wants to get rid of this “neutral” icon.

The plan to sites that do not support HTTPS connection as ‘not safe’ to indicate in Chrome is not new: it was the end of 2014 already announced, with the promise that there would be a transition plan in 2015. Then it was quiet until the end of 2015 Palmer announced that the aim was to the early 2016 run, with a reference to a blog post that is that eventually there should remain two statements about: safe and not safe. Last week it was the aim set out in the list of issues Chromium, which indicates that the warning is indeed on its way to integration into the browser.

Moreover, the functionality to enable more than half a year manually in Chrome by via chrome: // flags select “Unsecured start point mark not to be safe.”
