    HTTPS will be rolled out to NBR and other TechTarget sites this year. I have no more specific information than that.
    If I could push it through instantly, believe me, I'd have done so already.

    With the recent discovery of a vulnerability in WPA2-encrypted Wi-Fi networks, a properly-configured HTTPS website is all the more necessary. Mods, please hurry this along; I access NBR from my phone in public wireless networks fairly frequently.

    Really starting to run out of year here.... o_O
    Hope nobody is re-using a password here because they're still flying over the air un-encrypted.

    Frankly, somebody needs a rocket fired up them because an insecure login was professionally embarrassing 4 years ago. Now it's just downright dangerous and not to mention illegal in many western countries (many countries have privacy provisions which pertain to "reasonably" securing people's data). I'm not even going to delve into the potential of data leakage

    How goes the progress toward enabling HTTPS? :)

    Time flies, when you're chewing knackwurst.
