Title: SSL v TLS
Post by: liver007 on August 21, 2019, 05:01:35 pm
Since the industry has depreciated the use of SSL (and packages such as openSSL have evolved to support TLS), I think it is important to replace all mentions of SSL with TLS or some combination of the acronyms such as “SSL/TLS” “TLS/SSL” or “TLS (SSL)”.

The usage of terms that reflect the current technology should increase accessibility to the underlying concepts for users new to the technology.

Pages like system_advanced_admin.php should be the first to see the change.

For example the nginx plug in does not mention SSL at any point in the web interface. Even if the internal directives are still ssl_.

I don't agree, simply because it would invalidate a lot of translations for no benefit since SSL and TLS are being used interchangeably. Old strings should stay where they are, new strings should only mention TLS.
