HTTPS originally used the SSL protocol which eventually evolved into TLS, the current version defined in RFC in May That is why. When connecting to a server over HTTPS, it’s important to check the hostname you intended to contact against the hostnames (CN and subjectAltNames) in the . To protect the user data from third party attacks on the communication channel side, we should use a secure method like HTTPS [12] for data communication.

The Internet Engineering Task Force. In Maya research paper by researchers from Microsoft Research and Indiana University discovered that detailed sensitive user data can be inferred from side channels such as packet sizes. To do this, the site administrator typically creates a certificate for each user, a certificate that is loaded into their browser.

Traffic analysis attacks are a type of side-channel attack that relies on variations in the timing and size of traffic in order to infer properties about the encrypted traffic itself. I don’t know whether this specifically is a good call by Google or not, but they’re not violating an “official” standard, and sometimes it’s better to drop support for old deprecated things rather than carry on maintaining legacy support stuff that could have security flaws hiding in it but no longer has enough users to help flush them out, officially unofficial documents about what’s “mandatory” notwithstanding.


Normally, that contains the name and e-mail 8218 of the authorized user and is automatically checked by the server on each reconnect to verify the user’s identity, potentially without even entering a password.
