Topics Include:

Transport Layer Security (aka Secure Sockets Layer, TLS, and SSL) is among the most widely deployed and least understood networking protocols. It's a tiny but mighty part of most Internet applications, and must be deployed in ways that violate conventional sysadmin wisdom.

This talk takes you through:

How TLS works What TLS provides, and what it doesn't Assessing TLS configurations The Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol Using Let's Encrypt to automatically maintain TLS certificates Online Certificate Status Protocol Certificate Revocation CAA, HSTS, and Certificate Transparency Why you shouldn't run your own CA, and how to do it anyway Based on the new book "TLS Mastery."
