Everything you wanted to know about CloudFlare

CloudFlare (https://cloudflare.com) is a free global CDN, DNS, DDoS protection & web security provider. 

In this talk, we'll walk through how to connect CloudFlare to Drupal, and how to configure CloudFlare and Drupal to work together. 

We'll look at:

  • Using CloudFlare as a free CDN
  • Using CLoudFlare to enable https support
  • Using CloudFlare to enable HTTP/2
  • We'll investigate CloudFlare's WAF (Web Application Firewall), and how this firewall can protect your Drupal site against zero-day vulnerabilties and give you precious extra time to apply security updates. 
  • We will also look at CloudFlare's denial-of-service protections and firewalls. 
  • Finally, we will take a look at the CloudFlare module (https://drupal.org/project/cloudflare)
