Living with HTTPS: HSTS Jump to Story

This interesting blog post by Adam Langley explains that redirecting people to HTTPS is not as secure as you might think. It leaves you vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks when the first request is HTTP, that one could intercepted before users are redirected to the HTTPS one. No what you want to do is to use a header called: strict-transport-security or HSTS. This way, it's not the user’s burden to decide whether a certificate is secure or not. With HSTS, users will not be able to access a page with a certificate that isn’t proper.
