La semaine des nouvelles sur Internet : Let’s Encrypt atteint un milliard de certificats

Encryption wave: Let’s Encrypt, the website encryption project supported by the Internet Society, has issued 1 billion web security certificates, ZDNet reports. About 81 percent of the world’s websites now are secured with Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption, and Let’s Encrypt, which offers free TLS certificates, now serves nearly 200 million websites.

Encore plus de cryptage : Par ailleurs, le navigateur Firefox a commencé à activer par défaut le DNS sur HTTPS (DoH) pour les utilisateurs aux États-Unis, indique The Verge. Cet outil de cryptage sécurise le trafic Internet, y compris l’historique de la navigation.

No more WiFi: Google is shutting down a free Wi-Fi service called Station that has served parts of India, Indonesia, South Africa, Mexico, Thailand, Nigeria, Philippines, Brazil and Vietnam. TechCrunch reports. Google says the service is no longer needed because of falling prices for mobile broadband service. Google also struggled to find a business model.

Keep your hands off the network: Employees are increasingly connecting their personal Internet of Things devices, like smart watches and fitness trackers, to corporate networks, according to research by Zscaler, detailed at ZDNet. These unauthorized connections undermine network security. The most connected personal devices included digital home assistants, TV set-top boxes, video cameras, smart-home devices, smart TVs, smart watches, and automotive multimedia systems.

La lune de miel est terminée : les grandes entreprises technologiques ont longtemps entretenu une idylle avec l’Inde, mais elle touche à sa fin, car le pays s’apprête à réglementer les entreprises technologiques multinationales,rapporte CNN. “L’Inde modifie actuellement les règles de conduite dans le pays, ce qui pourrait rendre la prochaine décennie beaucoup plus difficile pour les entreprises technologiques mondiales qui tentent de tirer profit de son énorme marché. Une série de réglementations en préparation affectera la manière dont les entreprises – en particulier étrangères – collectent et stockent les données, vendent les produits en ligne et protègent la vie privée de leurs utilisateurs”.

Fined for sharing: U.S. mobile carriers are facing hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for sharing customers’ location data without permission, The Hill says. The fines were proposed after Last year, Motherboard was able to track a mobile phone’s location by giving a bounty hunter the phone number and $300 to purchase location information from a data broker.
