How does HTTPS work? What's a CA? What's a self-signed Certificate?
Is HTTPS really that difficult? Do I need to know crypto theory and a lot of math to understand it? You don't! This video explains how HTTPS works in very simple terms. It will touch upon encryption and digital signatures, as well as explaining what a trusted Certificate Authority is and what a self-signed certificate is.
We will build upon this knowledge in upcoming videos, when we plan to issue a self-signed certificate to secure a microservice app in a testing environment.
You no longer have an excuse to say HTTPS is too complex. Because this video simplifies all the concepts in less than 12 minutes.
