    Encrypt all web pages? Is this lunacy?

    I have a web developer who insists that all web pages must be encrypted.
    Professionally I think it's lunacy.
    I can understand the login portions of a website, but this site will not contain any confidential information.
    Actually all information on this site is meant to be publicly available.
    The claim made by the developer is that encryption of all web pages will ensure authenticity.
    Personally, I think it's a class project that has gone overboard.

    Anyone else care to chime in on encrypting all web pages?

    Depends on what you mean by "encrypted", to some extent. If he just wants all access to be via HTTPS, no big deal (other than having to get a SSL certificate, which is not free -- well, unless you don't mind a free one that many browsers will raise alerts about.)

    Yes, there is a need of encryption of all web pages as, if it is public or not,confidential or not.If not then identity cookie of your website will get steal.
