Switching to full HTTPS on July 1st, 2013

Important: a change is coming to URLs of MyGet. Please read through this post carefully as there may be some actions required on your side.

Protecting the security and privacy of our users is one of our most important tasks at MyGet. The fact that you can safely store your intellectual property on our servers is the best proof of that.

Currently, MyGet supports both http as well as https to communicate with our applications. To further improve our security, we're removing http access in the near future and will be switching to https only by July 1st, 2013, using a 2048-bit key certificate. By using only https, we can guarantee a secure communication channel between you and our servers.

Unfortunately, this change may require some action on your side. We will be discontinuing the http://www.myget.org URL in favor of https://www.myget.org. This means:

  • Your developers and/or clients may have to update their configuration
  • Your continuous integration servers may have to be reconfigured to make use of this new URL

This transition will happen in the following stages:

Actions required on your end:

  • Before July 1st - All links to MyGet have to be migrated to the https://www.myget.org URL if you are not on the Enterprise plan.

To help in updating feed URLs on developer machines, you can make use of package source discovery. http://docs.myget.org/docs/reference/package-source-discovery
In short, every developer can issue the following commands in his/her Visual Studio Package Manager Console to update feed URLs:

Install-Package DiscoverPackageSources
Discover-PackageSources -Url https://www.myget.org/Discovery/Feed/


We are confident this one-time change will make the entire MyGet experience even more secure.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions.

Best regards,
the MyGet team
