A blog post from Yahoo Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos, who joined the company a month ago, updates users on its project to increase data protection through the deployment of encryption technologies. As of March 31, traffic moving between Yahoo data centers was fully encrypted, the blog states, and an encrypted version of Yahoo Messenger is coming soon. “Hundreds of Yahoos have been working around the clock over the last several months to provide a more secure experience for our users, and we want to do even more moving forward. Our goal is to encrypt our entire platform for all users at all time, by default,” Stamos writes.
