TLS Mastery takes you through:

- How TLS works

- What TLS provides, and what it doesn't

- Wrapping unencrypted connections inside TLS

- Assessing TLS configurations

- The Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol

- Using Let's Encrypt to automatically maintain TLS certificates

- Online Certificate Status Protocol

- Certificate Revocation

- CAA, HSTS, and Certificate Transparency

- Why you shouldn't run your own CA, and how to do it anyway

- and more

Stop wandering blindly around TLS. Master the protocol with TLS Mastery
