Practical cloud considerations: Security and the decryption conundrum

March 21, 2019 / Cloud Computing News

compute in the cloud may be cheap but it isn't free. Most of today’s apps are delivered via secure HTTP. That means TLS or the increasingly frowned upon SSL. It means cryptography, which traditionally has been translated to mean performance problems. Thanks to advances in technology, CPUs are now incredibly fast and many client (and server-side) hardware natively integrates what was once specialised cryptographic hardware. This means that, on a per-connection basis, speed is not as much of an issue on an individual basis for cryptography as it once was.
