The concern about security has been increased for the last several years. This makes a lot of companies unite into groups to increase the level of their corporate security. That was the reason when such companies as Cisco, Mozilla, Akamai as well as IdenTrust took the decision to develop a new security service known as Let’s Encrypt. As the result of this union, the Internet Security Research Group was developed. The main mission of this group is to make the web traffic more secure for companies as well as for individuals. This group is for encryption of all the insecure internet connections.
The service is created for website developers and they will get the encryption of the domain with just a click. This project is non-profitable and its launch is scheduled for the second half of 2015. The new encryption will be more advanced than SSL encryption is. The name for this new encryption is TLS. The greatest benefit of this project is that any domain owner will have a chance to get TLS encryption for free. Nowadays, a domain owner needs to pay $30-$100 per each domain.
The problem is that people should trust this project and to make each person be sure to use it for prevention of any hack attacks. This type of encryption will be available for anyone as every browser or server will support it. Besides, a domain owner will not need to spend a lot of time on setting up this encryption as it could be done within just one click. As a result people who are visiting online shops with this type of encryption may be certain that their credit card information will not be stolen and will remain confident. This new encryption will also be available for mobile operating systems and any mobile user will not be afraid of someone tracing his or her conversations.
