Google Toughens Its Encryption

But will it keep the NSA out?


Google has announced the company is in the process of migrating its SSL [Secure Sockets Layer] certificates from 1024-bit to 2048-bit levels of encryption.

Google Identity Team's Tim Bray describes the decision as "part of our continuous effort to increase internet security for Google and our users".

The company said the rollout will be completed in the next few months.
