HTTPS Security: active in the entire session of Hotmail
Microsoft started to offer users the option of securing your Hotmail session with HTTPS data encryption, to improve the security of its instant messaging service...
In order to use data encryption when using the service, users have access to a secure session 'https', and enter your Hotmail account via the link "https://hotmail.com", or set you it by default in.
Once users enabled HTTPS, all future connections to Hotmail will be sent over SSL, explained Dick Craddock, administrator of the Group of programs for Windows Live Hotmail.
In addition to Hotmail, Microsoft also pointed out that from now on SkyDrive, Photos or Docs pages also use automatically SSL encryption.
To date, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer or secure connection layer protocol) was reserved at Hotmail when using the password, but now Microsoft improved security service with implementing this Protocol during the session of Hotmail and Windows Live.
It is worth mentioning that Google always provided users of Gmail, your electronic mail service the ability to use HTTPS and made that this feature can be set by default since last January. In addition, it also offers this option in Google Docs.
