SSL/TLS enforcer extensions – HTTPS all the way over the Internet
If you ever wanted to use SSL/TLS automatically with any website that provides this security feature, then some Google Chrome extensions can help you with this.
You can test “KB SSL Enforcer” with my blog. Install the first two extensions, then click on the KB button and then push the “Whitelist” button. You should see a warning because my certificate is signed by the FrenchDev CA which is certainly unknown to your Web browser. Just accept it, and you’re done.
Never miss the point that untrusted self signed certificates are insecure and could eventually be owned by an attacker in man-in-the-middle between you and the distant Web server. So, make sure that the traffic between you and the website is not filtered before you accept it, to make sure the certificate was not altered and can be trusted.
