Considering that most people use the internet every single day, surprisingly few of us know how the nuts and bolts of that connected system work -- even on a basic level -- and 'How HTTPS Works' is a tool for helping people to understand the structure of the internet in a friendly and approachable. And fittingly, 'How HTTPS Works' is in one of the internet's favorite forms: the webcomic.
'How HTTPS Works' is part of an ongoing series that aims to show exactly what its title claims. The comic features some cartoonish characters who are hybrids of animals and internet technologies, like a cat named Certificat, a dog named Compugter, and a bird named Browserbird. The comic doesn't explain the deep details of HTTPS, but it gives a broad overview for people to understand on a simple level.
