Wow your lack of understanding is staggering. This is to give you the ability to take care of of yourself. GDPR is about strengthening up current DP laws, because people do not take proper care of your personal data and also do not currently report beaches corrector

I bet they also have my password and have been logging in to my account. Those inflammatory posts weren't me! (this one too).

It's not about some supposed paranoia or daftness. I don't care if it's Amigas, cats, or banking, I think encryption should be an engineering principle these days.

With this long a time of being offline I of course expect much more than just a GDPR update. I'm dreaming of the most advanced and super modern looking Amiga forum of them all... hehehe, of well, it will just be a GDPR update-Amiga style, taking 10x as long as things would take in the normal world.

Man, so much complaining. These are free resources run by normal punters in their spare time people, give them a break!

Sorry, I'm not trying to put you on the defensive there guy. I'm not twisting your words, I'm just asking you to clarify yours.

The entire site is being migrated to new software. That's a huge job, aside from the GDPR stuff. Whether the difference will be visible enough to you personally to justify the downtime is a different matter.

Every time a site I use is "upgraded" it seems to come back uglier, slower and less friendly than before, I hope that's not the case with amiga.org

I hate having to make this exception for the EAB. What's taking RCK so long to enable HTTPS on here?
Unfortunately HTTPS is broken regarding rogue cert authorities and having recent standard updates allowing MITM (Man In The Middle), introduced in SNI extension to TLS (openssl) mainly to support services like Cloudflare (which is bad for other reasons). HTTPS can also be exploited by BGP router hijacks, which is a growing trend.

If you watched the video I linked, Binney mentions that NSA can decrypt HTTPS, so it will not help protect the user in that case either.

Still, regarding the EAB forum and HTTP in general, last I checked over 90% of all attacks are on the endpoints, in other words either web server or the client OS/computer is compromised, not the internet connection. HTTPS will not help when endpoints are compromised.

The reason Google and other corporations keep pushing for HTTPS is because they want accurate user metadata for their ad partners. When you allow HTTP it is hard for them to determine user IP address accurately because sites can be accessed through load balancing caches and proxies.

And you are all safe now with some meaningless law in place. You can sleep in peace now.

I don't think you're naiive enough to believe that's how law works in reality. The GDPR makes it easier to control your own data, and as a result, safer. There's no such thing as absolute security or safety, just reducing risks. And in that regard, the law is far from meaningless.
