Securely Accelerating Content Delivery Networks

For most people, the concept of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) is kind of foreign. CDNs are the hidden infrastructure that underlies most of the world wide web today. When you visit a major website, it is very likely that you are in fact being served content from a CDN point of presence (PoP). CDN PoPs are distributed throughout the world, typically in large cities to minimize the latency that end-users see when the content is delivered. Examples of CDNs that are focused on delivering content for businesses include Akamai, Limelight, Amazon Web Services, and Cloudflare; these companies deliver content for companies
