Rakuten’s Journey to HTTPS – Lessons So Far

Rakuten group is currently migrating its services to HTTPS; any service that uses HTTP is being migrated to HTTPS.

This work is still ongoing, however globally over 80% of Rakuten’s services had completed their migration by March 2017. We wanted to share our lessons for managing such a large scale migration.
