Google+ and Diaspora: Secure Connection (HTTPS) per default

Posted: July 19th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: random, security | Tags: , , , , , | No Comments »

I recently got invited to Google+ and had a curious first look. Google+ seems to be enforcing HTTPS on all pages. Given the current Facebook security issue with HTTPS this is good news. Also had a look at diaspora*, which has some active development. First public community supported diaspora* pods, such as diasp.org or diasp.eu also seem to enforce HTTPS on all pages.

Bottomline

Regarding network security, there are now two good alternatives to Facebook:

https://plus.google.com/ (Open to everyone)

https://joindiaspora.com/ (Open to everyone)
