CAA of the Wild: Supporting a New Standard

One thing we take pride in at Cloudflare is embracing new protocols and standards that help make the Internet faster and safer. Sometimes this means that we’ll launch support for experimental features or standards still under active development, as we did with TLS 1.3. Due to the not-quite-final nature of some of these features, we limit the availability at the onset to only the most ardent users so we can observe how these cutting-edge features behave in the wild.

Marshmallow-like silicone gels used as insulation in containers for cryopreserved embryos — ScienceDaily

As the genetic modification of mice is increasingly used in medical and biological research, so too is the need for an efficient way to transport cryopreserved embryos and sperm. For the preservation of the frozen embryos/sperm, liquid nitrogen is used to keep the temperatures in the transport containers below minus 150 °C. These containers, which are like a dry sipper with liquid nitrogen absorbers embedded inside, are heavy and often expensive, especially when used for short distance transportation. In this…

Make SSL boring again

It may (or may not!) come as surprise, but a few months ago we migrated Cloudflare’s edge SSL connection termination stack to use BoringSSL: Google’s crypto and SSL implementation that started as a fork of OpenSSL. We dedicated several months of work to make this happen without negative impact on customer traffic.
