[OSM-talk] Default OSM Tiles via HTTPS (Testing)

Hi OSM Talk,

Approximately 20% of visitors to OpenStreetMap.org today will receive
the default tiles via HTTPS (ssl/tls).

This is to test HTTPS on our CDN infrastructure.

If anyone experiences any problems please can you report them in
channel #osm on http://irc.openstreetmap.org/

Technical:
We use a dedicated wildcard *.tile.openstreetmap.org certificate
signed by RapidSSL/GeoTrust on the 12 geo distributed cache servers.
The SSL termination is handled by nginx. SSL Report:
https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=a.tile.openstreetmap.org
Enabling SSL on tile is a step towards being able to offer HTTPS as an
option on openstreetmap.org for more than just the login page.

Kind regards,
 Grant
 Part of OpenStreetMap sysadmin team.
