NGINX 101: Web Traffic Encryption with SSL/TLS and NGINX


85% of all web traffic is encrypted. This now standard practice helps ensure that data (sensitive or not) sent over the internet remains private and out of the hands of eavesdroppers and hackers. But how do you encrypt traffic? The answer is with SSL/TLS—an encryption protocol that protects Internet communication.

Join this NGINX 101 foundational webinar to learn more about the importance of and best practices for encrypting your web, application, and API traffic. Our presenters will show you how to create or procure a certificate to ensure transactions are authenticated as well as demo how straightforward it is to encrypt and secure your web traffic using NGINX. We’ll also answer your NGINX and encryption-related questions.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

How SSL/TLS encryption works and why it’s so crucial to securing web traffic hitting apps and APIs

How to procure and/or generate a certificate and what to do with it once you have it

Best practices for configuring NGINX to secure your web traffic with encryption and certificate authentication in a live demo

Answers to your encryption, certificate, and NGINX-related questions
