SSL isn't good enough. Your website can be hacked.
Help solve the problem by advocating these RFCs:

TLSA (formerly DANE for DNS) Fixes the hackable CA problem

TLS-OBC: Fixes TLS, and the Related Domain Cookie Attack


About me
I have no relation to the above sites; I am just an advocate

Why "makerofthings7"? It's a challenge to "make seven things in my life of significant quality and value". Who knows if those things will take the form of software, art, or people. (I'm not married, no kids yet)

comment Does HTTPS retrieval, among its other effects, sign a document?
IP address "signing" is of weak utility. If the "ownership" of the IP address comes into question, the whole signing scheme falls apart. Creative, but bad idea

comment How would AML techniques work in Ripple?
@Murch I thought Ripple has a transitive property that masks the original transmitter and receiver (the "ripple"). In that case I would think it would complicate AML work, no?

comment How to explain Heartbleed without technical terms?
Heartbleed allows an attacker to anonymously download a random chunk of memory of the server. This means they can get unencrypted passwords, and low-level encryption keys that protect your account... not to mention that an attacker might be able to access any part of the website (or data that you post into that site)

@Ross Right now it's a shared network... though I can change it if needed.
