What is TLS?
TLS, or Transport layer security, is a more modern version of the original SSL (Secure Socket Layer). It’s a protocol that’s part of the network stack responsible for securing the connection between client and server. TLS is commonly used in conjunction with HTTP to form HTTPS, the secure and encrypted form of HTTP.
Recently, Varnish Technical Evangelist Thijs Feryn led a webinar covering Varnish Configuration Language (VCL), the unique programming language that powers all of our software, as well as the popular open source Varnish Cache. For those who weren’t able to attend the webinar, you can watch it here.
