Exclamation A Secure Suggestion

Hey Admins,
Being a security geek, I just wanted to voice a quick concern. This website doesn't use SSL on the registration page or any page, which poses quite a threat to users details.
Are there any plans to integrate SSL in IIS?
Thanks,
Gavrilo

That's not unusual. That's why I don't store personal details in forums ...

BTW, SSL is deprecated. Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.1 or better is recommended - TLS 1.2 is the current version.

With the availability of free certificates there's no real excuse to not use it. Especially when user information is involved.
You're right, but both of them fall under the same umbrella.
