CloudFlare has announced the roll out of a much improved support for SSL on their platform.
The company said that the updated implementation is faster and more secure than ever before.
But, as of today, anyone with CloudFlare account with SSL need no longer fear the BEAST. The solution to BEAST is implementing TLS 1.1 and 1.2 as well as prioritizing the RC4 cypher suites. We just rolled out support for these across our network. This is one of those great updates where we can report that security has improved and performance is also faster. In fact, this update makes our overall SSL performance about 30% faster.
SSL is a paid feature of the CloudFlare platform.
