Project Galileo: Cloudflare SSL
Use this tool to encrypt Internet traffic and verify server identity.
Project Galileo is a free service from Cloudflare to protect the most vulnerable voices on the Internet from distributed denial of services (DDoS) attacks. The Internet is a powerful tool for spreading and expanding ideas. When journalist, social activists, and minority groups are repeatedly flooded with malicious traffic in an attempt to knock them offline, and keep them offline, the Internet stops fulfilling its promise. Project Galileo was founded in 2014 in response to the growing number of cyber attacks against important speech on the Web.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) more commonly called TLS, is a protocol for encrypting Internet traffic and verifying server identity. A website needs an SSL certificate in order to keep user data secure, verify ownership of the website, prevent attackers from creating a fake version of the site, and gain user trust. By encrypting any data that goes between a user and a web server, SSL ensures that anyone who intercepts the data can only see a scrambled mess of characters. SSL also stops certain kinds of cyberattacks: It authenticates web servers, which is important because attackers will often try to set up fake websites to trick users and steal data. It also prevents attackers from tampering with data in transit. Cloudflare is able to offer SSL for free for all plans because of its globally distributed CDN, with highly efficient proxy servers running in data centers all around the world.
