The HTTP 2.0 protocol will almost certainly default encryption enabled, but there are several possibilities raised to describe. Uri ‘s The preference seems to be given to the use of https in the uri, because it is a well known reference to encryption.

http Last summer sounds that sounded the HTTP 2.0 specification in addition https encryption should also be able to offer , making encrypted web pages ‘http’ can be invoked. using the protocol identifier There are two options proposed: “http uri’s server without authentication, also known as’ tls-relaxed”, or an implementation where the server is controlled via a certificate. Others proposed an implementation for which can be used for addresses beginning with https://, which are URIs that begin with “http://” only used for http 1.x. Http 2.0 only

According to an email from Chairman Mark Nottingham to members of the http working group it is clear from a tour include browser builders, logically closely involved in the development of the standard and strong advocates of a broader encryption use, they prefer a implementation with https. This allows sites that use HTTP 2.0 to offer with encryption so only uri’s with https.

This proposed method could be. According Nottingham without any changes made to the current protocol description Browser Builders are indeed not “required” to implement. 2.0 for http http uri’s Nevertheless, it remains possible to be served via HTTP 2.0 and HTTP URIs, web content, but will not have encryption enabled.

Nottingham mentions a number of outstanding security issues to be before the full HTTP 2.0 specification draft may be presented discussed. For example, there are new P2P caching options are discussed for proxy caching and whether or not to implement secure TLS implementations, such as perfect forward secrecy.
