HTTPS now available on creativecommons.org
nkinkade, February 4th, 2011
A week or two ago we received a request from someone to add HTTPS support to creativecommons.org. A reasonable request at all events, but the specific impetus for the email was someone who develops an application that uses CC’s Partner Interface to integrate CC licensing. Their interface is SSL-enabled, and so accessing the Partner Interface over a normal, non-encrypted channel was giving his users browser warnings about accessing non-encrypted data. I’m happy to announce that creativecommons.org is now available over an encrypted connection. Thanks to Peter Dietz for prodding us to implement this.
