Description

SSL is the security standard for securing communications over the web. Because it is largely configurable and comes in a wide variety of flavors, it can be very confusing. 

SSL Simplified provides fundamental topics of SSL, Certificate Authorities, self-signed certificates, a demo of how to communicate with HTTPS web services, and a demo of how to integrate SSL into your own web services. 

This course is meant for beginners to SSL but it's also a good refresher to those who are familiar with SSL/TLS. 

By the end of the course, you will understand the fundamentals of SSL and you'll be able to create a self-signed certificate and incorporate it into your web services.

Software consultant with passion for learning and sharing knowledge

Howdy, I'm Ethan. 

I'm from Texas and currently live in the Dallas area. I went to a small high school that didn't offer computer science, so my first introduction to it was in college. I had registered to study electrical engineering until the speaker at my orientation canceled and was replaced by a computer engineering graduate. That 60 minutes changed my life and I've had a passion for software development ever since. 

While pursuing my degree, I had internships in the telecom and defense industries. Upon finishing my degree I ultimately decided to enter into IT consulting at Credera, because of the promise of working on challenging project across many different industries. While at Credera, I've specialized in building out REST and SOAP web services, 3rd party vendor integration, and open source architecture. 

I enjoy explaining what I've learned and showing others how it can benefit them. I hope my lectures help you in some way and are as easy to follow as I intend them to be. Have fun and feel free to shoot me a question!
