Google Keeping Snoopers At Bay With A Pledge To Protect: Gmail super HTTPS encryption

Google was amongst the names mentioned in yesterday's announcement made by the Legal Advisor for the National Security Agency (NSA), Rajesh De, revealing that the Internet giants not only knew, but were legally bound, to give NSA access to collect data in what is now publicly known as the PRISM programme.

 

In a bid to ease the minds of users and stymie the NSA's watchful eyes, Google has rushed to reinforce its security and privacy measures. Translation: Gmail's encrypted HTTP has been upgraded to HTTP Secure (HTTPS), so the thousands of emails flying back and forth cannot be intercepted by unwanted foreign third parties.

 

In 2010, Gmail used encrypted HTTPS as a default browser, however, it was possible to remove the protection as an option. As of today, this option for protection removal is itself removed, and HTTPS will be Gmail's permanent browser setting.

In a blog post, Gmail Security Engineering Lead Nicolas Lidzborski comforted users stating, "Today's change means that no one can listen in on your messages as they go back and forth between you and Gmail's servers — no matter if you're using public Wi-Fi or logging in from your computer, phone or tablet."

 

The multifold security breaches conducted by the NSA has triggered active engagement and a push towards building stronger and tighter Web security systems.
