    Hello,

    Since Google has already started testing secure websites and rankings.....
    Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: HTTPS as a ranking signal

    We are looking at how to begin implementing a plan to move our clients to SSL with their websites.

    As a test we went to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest to test our company's website domain smartfindsmarketing.com

    The results of this test overall was good, but there were two recommendations we are not quite sure how to implement.

    TLS 1.2. Grade and Forward Secrecy

    From our research it looks like 'Forward Secrecy' with SSLs, isn't quite available on a cPanel/WHM server, as much of cpanel still requires the 'RSA' authentication method.

    Does anyone know if this is true? If so, are there any plans to move towards Forward Secrecy and TLS 1.2?

    Appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks.

    Hi cPanel Staff,

    Thanks for the feedback. I had searched inside of this discussion group and not in the features group. It is good to know that this is in the works and something being considered recently.

    Your short term recommendation as a work around is much appreciated.
