TLS 1.3 support is coming this spring

While March brings NCAA Madness, this year it also brought TLS 1.3, which will be coming to all Akamai customers soon!  Let's give some background.

Good News from Singapore

The IETF had its 100th meeting the week of November 13. It was held in Singapore. I want to report on two pieces of good news.

TLS 1.3 FTW

In common slang, FTW is an acronym "for the win" and while that's appropriate here, I think a better expansion is "for the world."

We're pleased to announce that we have sponsored the development of TLS 1.3 in OpenSSL. As it is one of the most widely-used TLS libraries, it is a good investment for the overall health and security of the Internet, so that everyone is able to deploy TLS 1.3 as soon as possible.
