Another fix is in the works for one of the more hidden aggravations of internetworking security, the so-called Server Name Indication (SNI) extension debacle. The fix – an Encrypted Server Name Indication has been crafted by Clouflare and evidenced by the service itself – eSNI – is an indication of a Company-Doing-The-Right-Thing and enrypting-all-the-things. Additional work is currently underway targeting a IETF Draft RFC. Simply Outstanding Work, Cloudflare.
