HTTPS isn’t what it used to be. It’s faster, more secure, and used by more websites than ever before.
SSL enables HTTP/2, which has the potential to make websites up to two times faster with no changes to existing codebases.
Modern TLS also includes performance-oriented features like session resumption, OCSP stapling, and elliptic curve cryptography that uses smaller keys (resulting in a faster handshake).
TLS 1.3 reduces latency even further and removes insecure features of TLS making HTTPS more secure and performant than any previous version of TLS and its non-secure counterpart, HTTP.
