Patch-tag is now https safe, so you can access your projects with cryptographic security. Just use https style urls when interacting with patch-tag.
By the way — for you code shops with mission critical, high-value, national security endangering repos hosted at patch-tag — https isn’t completely safe.
You could, for instance, get your password sniffed by a man in the middle attack with arp poisoning, if you are in a public network like an internet cafe, or on a trusted network with a coworker who enjoys hanky panky.
There is a simple thing you can do to foil the terrorists though — just click outside the text fields and type some gibberish when you are entering your password.
Ha! Take that script kiddies!
Please enjoy secure repos at patch tag, and as always…
UPDATE: Please note the comments which contradict some of my claims. I think I may be wrong about some of this stuff, and am taking a backtrack to make sure my understanding is solid. Watch this space.
