An Analysis of the SPDY Protocol and the SPDY Proxy

An Analysis of the SPDY Protocol and the SPDY Proxy

April 2014

In a bid to enhance the speed and security of the web, browser and application developers are implementing new protocols and using end-to-end encryption. Google’s SPDY, described as “an experimental protocol for a faster web”, is one of the new protocols being introduced. To accelerate adoption of the protocol, SPDY proxy services offer some of the benefits of SPDY even when downloading content from web servers that have not yet implemented the SPDY protocol. However, by bundling and encrypting all web traffic for a user inside a single connection, the SPDY proxy hides the true source of the content and breaks content distribution and network management.
