any sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using a clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS.
The plugin is available for Firefox (PC and Android), Chrome and Opera:
I have written a rule for forum.owncloud.org and owncloud.org and just want to post it in here:
Code: Select all
<target host="www.owncloud.org" />
<target host="owncloud.org" />
<target host="forum.owncloud.org" />
<securecookie host="^owncloud\.org$" name=".+" />
<rule from="^http://(www\.)?owncloud\.org/" to="https://owncloud.org/"/>
<rule from="^http://forum\.owncloud\.org/" to="https://forum.owncloud.org/"/>
You need to copy the file above with the name owncloud.xml (for example) into the folder "HTTPSEverywhereUserRules" of your Firefox profile and restart Firefox. (Chrome and Opera users needs to do some research how this is done at their browser).
The securecookie part of the rule is not really needed as the forum itselfs sets the proper "secure" cookie flag.
