Ivcs-field-uses-insecure-uri

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The Vcs-* field uses an unencrypted transport protocol for the URI. It is recommended to use a secure transport such as HTTPS for anonymous read-only access.

Note that you can often just exchange e.g. git:// with https:// for repositories. Though, in some cases (bzr's "lp:" or CVS's pserver) it might not be possible to use an alternative url and still have a working (anonymous read-only) repository.
