CloudFlare Launches Keyless SSL

CloudFlare launched Keyless SSL, a new technology that allows organizations to keep Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) keys private -- out of reach from external parties -- while offering all the benefits of a cloud-based infrastructure. For the first time, organizations can rid themselves of expensive, rigid, on-premise network hardware while harnessing essential technologies like DDoS mitigation, CDN, web application firewalls (WAF), and load-balancing in the cloud. Before Keyless SSL, organizations could not get the benefits of a cloud-based WAF, CDN, or other security and performance enhancement services without turning over cryptographic keys to a third-party cloud provider. Because of legitimate security concerns over revealing private SSL keys to a third party, most banks and Fortune 500 companies chose to maintain expensive on-premise equipment that would often fail under load. These organizations could not leverage the massive benefits of a cloud-based infrastructure: low cost, low maintenance, and virtually infinite scalability.
