Recently, I was building a website with documentation for one of the projects I’m involved with. I wanted to protect access to that website to a specific set of people inside my company. Here’s how I did it.
Last month, I did a talk at GOTO Berlin where I explained the basics of Transport Layer Security. During the talk, the audience asked a few questions through the app. One of them was: “How does Beast work?” and I wasn’t able to answer that one on stage, unfortunately. Since it’s an interesting question, I’ll answer it here. Unfortunately, understanding BEAST is a bit harder than the talk itself… BEAST stands for Browser Exploit Against SSL/TLS.
