SSL is everywhere – we use it to secure the transport of all our applications. And we need to keep pace with an ever-growing number of application connections, both B2C and B2B, across different platforms.

But what is changing? The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) said we must all move to a 2048-bit key length. Then came Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) certificates and NIST advised we should move to those. Now quantum computing is around the corner. Is elliptic or larger keys still the way to go, considering the progress made in quantum-resistant cryptography?

In this session, you'll learn how SSL/TLS should be approached to secure your applications. We'll discuss:

  • Best practices for deploying and managing SSL/TLS
  • How HTTP/3 impacts the use of TLS
  • What quantum computing means to the future of SSL
  • Securing your certificates
  • Passing security audits
