- Montreal 2014
While embarking on a year long project to deploy SSL to 100% of Twitter users, our team worked through many challenges and performance issues.
In this talk, I'll discuss those challenges and issues involved deploying SSL to 200 million+ users.
I will also discuss the current risks facing administrations (NSA/Prism, Key management, CRIME, BEAST, and BREACH) when implementing SSL at any scale, and mitigations (HSTS, cipher selection,etc.).
